The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics has named its nominees for its milestone 10th Dorian Awards for the best in film and television of 2018.

Leading in the movie categories with eight nominations is The Favourite, followed by If Beale Street Could TalkCan You Ever Forgive Me and Roma with six nods each, and A Star is Born with four. The stars of the latest “Born” remake—Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga—are both up for Film Performance honours as well as the group’s Wilde Artist of the Year award.

Many of the nominations add some excitement to this year’s film awards season. On GALECA’s short list for best actor: First Reformed star Ethan Hawke and BlacKkKlansman lead John David Washington. Hereditary’s Toni Collette and Yalitza Aparicio of Roma vie alongside Gaga for best actress. Widows upstart Elizabeth Debicki and Black Panther standout Michael B. Jordan up the ante in supporting performance races. And former YouTube star turned Eighth Grade writer-director Bo Burnham scored a nomination for Screenplay of the Year.

The spectacular, practically candy-coated Marvel adventure Panther is one of the titles up for Visually Striking Film of the Year, while the Diane Keaton comedy Book Club and Aquaman are in the running for (or from?) the Campy Flick honor.

In TV categories, FX’s transgender-empowering drama Pose and BBC America’s biting cat-and-mouse thriller Killing Eve lead among drama series. Killing Eve headliners Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, true to their hit’s storyline, vie against each other for TV Performance—Actress, while Hugh Grant and his “A Very English Scandal” paramour Ben Whishaw face each other on the gentlemen’s side. Also making a fresh impression with GALECA, comprised of over 200 members in the U.S., Canada, Australia and the U.K.: HBO’s hitman comedy Barry, Pop network’s rich-family satire Schitt’s Creek, and Julia Roberts and her cryptic new Amazon conspiracy tale Homecoming.

“We’re thrilled by the strong variety of films and TV performances our diverse group of members has chosen to praise,” said GALECA President Diane Anderson-Minshall, 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 colour, 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,” added GALECA’s Executive Director John Griffiths. “In such oddly combative times, that’s really something to covfefe.”

Speaking of cheeky, along with its latest nominations, GALECA has announced that comedian and radio personality Frank DeCaro (The Daily Show, Sirius XM’s The Frank DeCaro Show) will preside as Master of Ceremonies at its invitation-only 10th Dorian Awards Winners Toast. The event will be held Saturday, January 12, noon to 2:30 at Paley restaurant in Hollywood’s historic Columbia Square.

De Caro, fondly remembered for his turn as the campy movie critic on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, embodies “the perfect mix of wit and sincerity that suits our freewheeling Toast format,” said Griffiths. “He’s not only charming and funny, he has a deep respect for what it takes to make quality entertainment, remains sweetly starstruck even in these jaded times, and keeps his eye and heart on the big picture too.” DeCaro’s latest book, Drag: Combing Through the Big Wigs of Show Business, comes out from Rizzoli this spring.

Since GALECA’s first film and TV favourites were named in 2010, over 200 artists and productions have received a Dorian Award, while over 1000 have received nominations. Among its Film of the Year winners are “Argo” and “12 Years a Slave,” as well as two movies directed by Luca Guadagnino, I Am Love and Call Me By Your Name. With five Dorians each across various categories, Moonlight and Carol stand as the most awarded films in GALECA history, while Transparent, with six wins in best-series categories alone, reigns as the most honoured TV title.

Performers? Jessica Lange, Cate Blanchett and Jeffrey Tambor rank as GALECA’s most honoured so far, while MSNBC news personality Rachel Maddow and filmmaker Jordan Peele have each been recognised with three Dorian wins in non-performance categories.
