|Soar of the Roses|
The final season of the international sleeper hit Schitt's Creek proved to be irresistible to GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics with their inaugural Dorian TV Awards. The beloved Canadian comedy (brought to us stateside by Pop TV) landed a leading seven nominations, including Best TV Comedy and individual nods for the entire Rose family: Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara, Dan Levy and Annie Murphy.
Netflix triumphed overall with a whopping 21 total nominations, most notably six for Hollywood, Ryan Murphy's glitzy re-imagining of Tinseltown's tawdry history, including four for its cast too (Jeremy Pope, Patti LuPone, Joe Mantello and Jim Parsons) but curiously not for Best TV Movie or Limited Series. Two HBO critical darlings, Bad Education and Watchmen, did land in that category, bringing their total haul to four nominations each, including a pair of acting nominations each (Hugh Jackman and Allison Janney for the former, Regina King and Jean Smart for the latter).

Other series reaping multiple mentions are Netflix's The Crown, Dead to Me and Ozark and FX's Mrs. America and What We Do in the Shadows, as well as previous Dorian Award winners Killing Eve, RuPaul's Drag Race and the Academy Awards. See the comments section below for the complete list of nominations.
Since 2009, GALECA (of which I and fellow Movie Dearest critic Chris Carpenter are longstanding members) has bestowed the annual Dorian Awards to both movies and TV at the beginning of the year, corresponding with the yearly film award season that culminates with the Oscars. However, this year marks the first time the Dorian TV Awards will fly solo, now more closely aligning with the television industry's highest honor, the Emmy Awards, which are handed out in the fall. The winners of the first annual Dorian TV Awards will be announced August 21st.
