The Favourite nominated for eight Dorian Awards

GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics has announced the nominations for the 10th Dorian Awards.

Period comedy-drama The Favourite is leading the movie category with eight nominations. The film, which depicts the lesbian love affairs of Queen Anne, stars Olivia Colman as the monarch, with Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone as cousins vying for her affection.

Up against The Favourite are Roma, If Beale Street Could Talk, and Can You Ever Forgive Me, with six nods each. A Star Is Born, a hot-tip for numerous award ceremonies, has four nominations.

In television, FX’s trans-drama Pose and BBC America’s thriller Killing Eve are leading the dramas. Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, who star in Killing Eve, both have nominations for best actress awards, as do Hugh Grant and Ben Whishaw for their roles in A Very English Scandal.

‘It’s hard to believe this is our 10th go-around’

GALECA is made up of over 200 journalists based in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia.

‘We’re thrilled by the strong variety of films and TV performances our diverse group of members has chosen to praise,’ said Diane Anderson-Minshall, GALECA president and editorial director of The Advocate.

‘In a lovely compliment to the Time’s Up movement, several categories, including Wilde Artist of the Year, Wilde Wit of the Year, and Rising Star, are dominated by women this year. And it’s inspiring that the majority of our Director of the Year nominees are people of color, including Spike Lee, Barry Jenkins, and Alfonso Cuarón.’

‘It’s hard to believe this is our 10th go-around of giving out our Dorian Awards,’ John Griffiths, GALECA’s executive director, added. ‘In such oddly combative times, that’s really something to covfefe.’

The winners will be announced on Saturday, January 12 in Los Angeles. Check out the complete list of the Dorian Awards nominees for 2018/19 here:
