‘Call Me by Your Name’ Sweeps Gay and Lesbian Critics Association’s Dorian Awards

Leave it to the LGBTQ Critics Association to right the horrible wrong that is Michael Stuhbarg's Oscar snub.

“Call Me By Your Name”

Sony Pictures Classics

Is it any wonder that GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics, has excellent taste? The leading LGBTQ critics association announced the winners of its annual Dorian Awards today, and “Call Me by Your Name” topped the list. Luca Guadagnino’s luch gay romance earned honors in five categories, including Film of the Year and LGBTQ Film of the Year. Timothée Chalamet was twice recognized; for his performance as Elio in “Call Me by Your Name,” and with the ‘We’re Wilde About You!’ Rising Star Award. The Dorians also did its small part to correct two of the greatest Oscar oversights ever, awarding Michael Stuhlbarg for his work in “Call Me by Your Name” as well as naming “BPM (Beats Per Minute)” the Best Foreign Language Film of the year.

On the television side, “Big Little Lies” was dubbed TV Drama of the Year, with Nicole Kidman winning for her acting work in the HBO series. Kyle MacLachlan was singled out for his work in “Twin Peaks: The Return.” “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” won Best Current Affairs Show, and “RuPaul’s Drag Race” won best LGBTQ Show of the Year. (RuPaul is also huge fan of “Call Me by Your Name”).

Previously known as the Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association, GALECA is comprised of over 200 gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and ally entertainment journalists in the U.S., Canada and U.K. (This writer is also a member).
