I've only posted a select few categories from GALECA's annual Dorian Award nominations, since the other categories do not relate at all to film. I'm delighted to see that at least one prominent critic organisation hasn't forgotten about how much they all loved Blue Is the Warmest Colour back in Cannes. They might all remember better had it not won the Palme. And another group, after the ICS, to show love for Laurence Anyways. So you can't win them all! They will present their awards on the 21st of January, which is less than a week away. And you can see their full list of nominees here.
