    Coinciding with Pride month, the Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics (GALECA) unveiled their nominations for the inaugural Dorian TV Awards on Tuesday.

    Sitcom Schitt’s Creek leads with seven nominations, including best TV comedy and best supporting TV performance for Dan Levy. Ryan Murphy’s Hollywood follows close behind with six nods including best LGBTQ TV show and most visually striking show. HBO’s Hugh Jackman-starrer Bad Education and fantasy miniseries Watchmen each have four nominations.

    “With a global pandemic, severe economic strife, the gut-punches of racism and police brutality proverbially hitting us all—this might not seem like the right time for fluffy showbiz awards,” said GALECA president Diane Anderson-Minshall. “But it may be more important than ever now to embrace and champion quality stories and push the real Hollywood’s entitled writers, producers, executives and PR reps out of their bubble and into truly reflecting America’s diversity for a change. They have so much power, and entertainment journalism groups like GALECA can make them accountable.”

    GALECA’s executive director John Griffiths added, “Stereotypical, or worse, depictions of LGBTQs and People of Color have greatly contributed to the pain America is in right now. GALECA and its partner organization CGEM: Critics Groups for Equality in Media are determined to press media companies to take more responsibility and hire more underrepresented voices, voices that might say, ‘Hey, why, in 2020, is every single character on this show white, rich and straight except for the token Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian and/or Queer baddie or comic foil?'”

    Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness is among the nominees for campiest TV show, while Hulu’s Normal People, an adaptation of Sally Rooney’s novel, is up for best TV movie or limited series alongside Little Fires Everywhere.

    Schitt Creek’s Levy, Randy Rainbow, Cate Blanchett, Hannah Gadsby and Trevor Noah are nominated for the Wilde Wit award, which honors a performer, writer or commentator whose observations “both challenge and amuse.”

    The winners will be announced Aug. 21. Nonprofit organization GALECA was launched in 2009 to explore and celebrate both mainstream and LGBTQ-centered content. There are currently over 250 members, all active critics and journalists.
