LGBTQ entertainment critics reveal their 2021 Dorian TV Award nominations

GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics has revealed the nominees for their second annual Dorian TV Awards, with the final season of Pose leading with a total of six nods including Best TV Drama, followed by WandaVision with five nominations, and Mare of Easttown and I May Destroy You each garnering four nominations, while It’s a Sin scored three, plus recognition for Sir Elton John and Olly Alexander’s It’s A Sin duet during the Brit Awards telecast.

“Our group’s nominations are diverse and fresh, signaling the overhaul of invisibility of marginalized communities and the heralding of a new generation of entertainment journalists”, comments the Society’s newly elected president, Monika Estrella Negra.

GALECA’s membership, comprising over 300 US and international entertainment journalists, recently voted to make all Dorian Award acting categories gender-neutral (as they were in the group’s first three years of existence, beginning in 2009), with 10 nominees for Best TV Performance and Best Supporting TV Performance.
