Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Name 12 Years a Slave, Philomena, Cate Blanchett, Leonardo DiCaprio and Lesbian Romance Blue is the Warmest Color Among Noms

HOLLYWOOD, CA / Tuesday, January 14, 2014 — Phil Robertson may think the LGBTs are going to hell, the state of Texas may deem the gays unworthy of marriage . . . but who can resist rejoicing in the Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association’s nominations for the best in film and television of 2013? (Anyone overwhelmed by the awards glut need not answer.)

Director Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave, the fact-based story of a “Yankee” black man abducted into slavery just before the Civil War, is in the running for Film of the Year along with Spike Jonze’s Her, the French lesbian love story Blue is the Warmest Color, the Canadian gender-bending romanceLaurence Anyways, and awards-season darlings Gravity, Dallas Buyers Club and American Hustle. Fans of well-regarded but little-seen indie flicksFrances Ha and The Spectacular Now should be happy those films are in the running for Unsung Film of the Year.

In TV categories, Netflix’s upstart women-in-prison dramedy is nominated for TV Drama of the Year alongside Breaking Bad, Mad Men, American Horror Story: Coven and Behind the Candelabra, HBO’s movie about out-there pianist Liberace. Michael Douglas, who assayed the famous showman, is among the nominees for TV Performance of the Year—Actor.

This year’s 21 categories include a variety of acting races, rising star honors, the group’s finalists for Visually Striking Film of the Year, and a TV Musical Performance of the Year list that includes Jessica Lange, Shirley Bassey, Jane Krakowski, Neil Patrick Harris and Lea Michele. One winner is already decided: GALECA has named Lily Tomlin the recipient of its special Timeless star tribute, given to “an actor or performer whose exemplary career is marked by character, wisdom and wit.”

Due to ties, a few categories, such as Film of the Year, have up to seven nominees rather than five. Winners will be announced Tuesday, January 21, and GALECA’s annual toast will be held Sunday, March 9, at a location Hollywood (TBA).

 

GALECA, a 501 C-6 nonprofit organization, is comprised of over 80 professional entertainment journalists across the U.S. and Europe who write or report for media outlets easily accessible in America. GALECA’s mission is to generate camaraderie in an unsettling media environment, preserve and champion the art of constructive criticism, and remind the world the LGBT community has a significant history of enhancing culture at large. And how would the world fare without knowing what’s campy?
