GALECA DORIAN NOMINEES - BIRDMAN LEADS


Looks like the Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association isn't terribly bothered, on the whole, by the cries of homophobia directed toward The Imitation Game - the film scores two top nominations from the group, though Birdman leads the field with four. An eclectic and wide-ranging selection from GALECA, I can't help but feel disappointed at some of their choices, since films like The Babadook, Gone Girl and Stranger by the Lake could certainly have done with the same level of attention afforded to The Imitation Game. Winners will be revealed on the 20th of January.
