GALECA Reveals The Winners Of The 2016 Dorian Awards

GALECA dorian awards

So we said the other day that the Oscars this year were more than a disappointment, both in terms of diversity and especially for our community. They put the lesbian film "Carol" aside, despite its quality.

Unlike the Oscars, the Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association (GALECA), an association that consists of more than 130 professional critics and entertainment journalists worldwide, announced the winners of the 2016 Dorian awards.

Each year, the Dorian awards recognize movies, TV series, but also artists and their musical performances, not only those of the community.

Among the winners of this year 2016, we therefore note the excellent performance of the lesbian film "Carol" which won the most important awards since the film leaves with the film of the year, the director of the year, the screenplay of the year and the LGBTQ film of the year awards. Cate Blanchett won the performance of the year for an actress award she had already won for her role in "Blue Jasmine".

The documentary about Amy Winehouse I had mentioned before the Cannes film festival during which it was screened for the first time was also crowned as the documentary of the year.

Leonardo DiCaprio was honored for his role in "The Revenant" too.

As for TV series, "Orange Is The New Black" and "Fargo" won both the award for TV drama of the year, while "Transparent" is given the award for TV comedy of the year.

In music, the jurors praised the performance of Aretha Franklin with her song "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" during the 38th Annual Kennedy Center Honors on CBS.

Finally, Jane Fonda received a special prize, the Timeless Star, rewarding her entire career.
