GALECA ANNOUNCES DORIAN NOMINEES FOR 2015


Here are the nominations for the Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association's Dorian Awards for 2015. Female-focused films fare well, as do LGBT+ films, naturally. There are mentions for The Danish Girl and Stonewall, unfortunately, but they're more than balanced out by welcome recognition for Carol in top categories. Winners are due to be announced on the 19th of January, refreshingly earlier than GALECA has made their decisions in some past frames. Check out what voters have nominated below:
