Gay Critics Name Hathaway, “Argo”…And “Liz & Dick” Winners Of 2013 Dorian Awards

ArgoThe Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association announced on Wednesday the winners of its fourth annual Dorian Awards, honoring the finest in film, television and overall performances, not just LGBT-centric. Formed in 2009, GALECA presents its annual Dorian Awards, named after noted wit Oscar Wilde and his seminal novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, each February.

Argo, Daniel Day-Lewis and Anne Hathaway continue to build momentum towards the Oscars following their wins at Sunday’s Golden Globes with best film, actor and actress wins, respectively. Fellow Oscar hopeful How to Survive a Plague picked up Documentary of the Year and Matthew McCounaghey double feature Magic Mike and The Paperboy tied for Campy Flick of the Year.

On the television front, American Horror Story: Asylum tied with Homeland for Drama of the Year and Modern Family tied with The New Normal for Comedy of the Year. So perhaps it was inevitable that Ryan Murphy, who’s behind both Horror Story and New Normal, won the Wilde Artist of the Year.

Meanwhile, Liz & Dick picked up one of the few awards it will ever see for Campy TV Show of the Year, but as Lindsay infamously said, “Who’s counting?” Check out the full list of winners below:

      I think that it’s terrible for gay critics to give awards to heterosexist movies. Why applaud your own erasure? “Congratulations on so effectively portraying a world where we don’t exist!”

      Congratulations on giving an award to one of the more offensive writers in television. Let’s all clap for Ryan Murphy as he makes lesbian jokes, taunts queer teenage girls who dare to call him on his shit, and calls interesexed people “losers”. Yeah, he’s quite the icon.

      Don’t be offended by who they’re giving award to based on their personal views, evaluate it from an artistic standpoint – separate the artist from their work and THEN be offended by the fact that they award shitty things.
