The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics (GALECA) unveiled on Tuesday its 2022 Dorian Award nominations, which recognize the best in mainstream and independent movies. Winners will be revealed March 17.
Jane Campion’s western drama The Power of the Dog leads the pack with nine nods in total, including for best film, best LGBTQ film and best director. Animated film Flee received five nominations, along with 1920s-set racial drama Passing and Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story.
In the best film performance category, which is gender neutral, nominees include Kristen Stewart for Spencer, Andrew Garfield for Tick, Tick… Boom! and Benedict Cumberbatch for The Power of the Dog.
“You could say the movies and performances chosen by our Society’s members are a reflection of what appeals to the entire trendsetting Queer and Trans community,” said GALECA president Monika Estrella Negra, in a statement. “As our representation grows in the industry and beyond, expect the Dorian Awards to continue to shine light on the importance, and excitement, of having diverse critical eyes on cinema. There is much work to be done in advancing a variety of voices and images that often go unheard and unseen.”
