Gay and Lesbian Critics Announce 2014 Dorian Award Nominations

Gay and Lesbian Critics Announce 2014 Dorian Award Nominations

The Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association (GALECA) — comprised of over 100 critics and entertainment journalists nationwide — announced their nominations for the best in movies and television of 2014. 

GALECA’s mission to honor content “from mainstream to gaystream” brought a mix of Oscar favourites like “Birdman,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and “Boyhood,” as well LGBT-oriented films like “Pride,” “Love is Strange” and “Stranger By The Lake.” On the TV side, “Transparent” deservedly led the nominations, while a ton of other LGBT-themed series (obviously TV has more to offer in that regard these days) also made the cut: “The Normal Heart,” “Orange is the New Black,” “Looking,” “Please Like Me” and “Modern Family.” Also, major props to the group for honoring the fabulous second season of “The Comeback” (which got overlooked by the Globes and SAG Awards).
The winners will be announced next Tuesday, January 20th. The complete list of Dorian Award nominees is below.
