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?

    Unsung? Are these gay awards?

    OUT IN THE DARK? That’s a terrible movie. Was there any good gay movie this year? I don’t recall any. I never saw KILL YOUR DARLINGS.

  2. January 14, 2014

    Bryce, good LGBT movies this year:
    Dallas Buyers Club, Concussion, God Loves Uganda, Blue is the Warmest Color, Call Me Kuchu, Before You Know It (on the festival circuit), Kill Your Darlings, Laurence Anyways, Behind the Candelabra, Philomena (ish), Valentine Road, Side Effects, I’m So Excited, Bridegroom

    Film Performance of the Year – Actor

    James Franco, Spring Breakers (A24)
    Jared Leto, Dallas Buyer Club (Focus)

    Ha, I love these people. I never heard of them before, but Franco’s nomination, and putting Jared right up with with Matthew, makes me love them.

    They did not see Stranger by the lake or Tom at the Farm

    Like the inclusion of Laurence Anyways – a beautifully shot french canadian film.

  6. Corvo
    January 15, 2014

    Tom at the Farm (really really good) will be in this list next year.

    When do we get the results of the Simulated Oscar Ballot? I swear I’m more excited for those than the real nominations! I understand it’s a rather complicated process and it has to be done seriously, but I can’t wait!

    @Ryan,

    Re SAG, PGA and Oscar predictions, is it all right to have them all submitted about one hour following this comment. (I’m in a different time zone and not certain about AD’s deadline either.)

    (Awaiting my wind to rise, as well as those dog and butterfly moments, prior to making a final prediction.)

  9. January 15, 2014

    JPNS Viewer, you’ll be fine making predictions in an hour. No deadlines looming in the next several hours.

  10. January 15, 2014

    Christophe, Rob sent me the raw numbers overnight. We’ll post this morning. (I can’t look until I make some predictions/wishlist of my own.)

  11. JPNS Viewer
    January 15, 2014

    Anyway, I’ve just submitted my SAG winner predictions — now. Thanks.

    (I’m going to submit my predictions for both PGA and Oscar as soon as possible.)

  12. JPNS Viewer
    January 15, 2014

    Ryan says: “JPNS Viewer, you’ll be fine making predictions in an hour. No deadlines looming in the next several hours.”

    Thanks for your prompt response. (I’ve just seen it now following my most previous comment.)

    In that case — “no deadline looming in the next several hours” — I’m going to take my time and have both PGA and Oscar predictions submitted at any time during the next few hours. (SAG predictions submitted a few mins ago.)
    (Your response, as shown above, is crucial in my case because due to my whereabouts, inevitably I’ve missed certain important films all of which otherwise would have made my predictions less ill-informed and more healthy. So, now I simply end up doing it my own way – which should take some time. So, for that reason; again, THANKS!)

    So Re: this subject.

    Last night I saw==> http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2617828/

    Perfectly good film. Very been there done that as they usually go, but well made. Some fortuitous stuff is nearly SMH-inducing. Point is the leads are VERY charming, very hot, and have great chemistry so I guess I’m recommending. ★★★½

    I really enjoyed C.O.G. which had the wonderful Jonathon Groff as the lead. What I like about it was that it’s that extremely rare film about religion that doesn’t proselytize, and what makes it even more rare is that the main character is a confident gay man. It’s a great character study filled with under-appreciated actors allowed to do memorable things. It’s not for everyone, but I thought it was a special film.
