Pose, WandaVision Lead GALECA LGBTQ Critics Dorian TV Award Nominations

GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics, comprised of over 300 entertainment journalists in the U.S. and abroad, has announced its 2021 Dorian TV Award nominations.

“I’m so proud,” said the Society’s newly elected president, Monika Estrella Negra. “Our group’s nominations are diverse and fresh, signaling the overhaul of invisibility of marginalized communities and the heralding of a new generation of entertainment journalists.”

The final season of Pose, FX’s found-family drama, leads with six nominations, including Best TV Drama. Disney+’s TV-spoofing Marvel fantasy WandaVision is close behind with five nominations. And with four nominations each are HBO’s grim Kate Winslet-lead murder mystery Mare of Easttown and vividly frank I May Destroy You, as well as the heartrending drama It’s a Sin from HBO Max.

Spurred by passionate pleas from non-binary activists, as well as non-binary journalists and others in GALECA’s own ranks, the group’s membership recently voted to make all Dorian performance categories gender-neutral (as they were in the group’s first three years of existence, beginning in 2009). Aiming to alleviate concerns that the elimination of gendered acting categories would cut the number of nomination-worthy roles by half—and leave out artists that might otherwise be recognized—the Society moved to note 10 nominees, rather than the usual five, for Best TV Performance and Best Supporting TV Performance.

The Dorian TV Award winners will be revealed Sunday, August 29.
