The Power of the Dog, Flee, Passing and West Side Story Dominate Dorian Award Nominations
Adding some zest to the film awards season, GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics has announced its Dorian Award nominations for the best in movies, mainstream to LGBTQ. Jane Campion’s volatile period drama "The Power of the Dog" leads the pack with nine nods, including for best film, LGBTQ film, director and three for acting. Coming in a few rungs lower with five nominations each: The 1920s-set racial drama "Passing," the unusual animated refugee documentary "Flee," and Steven Spielberg’s vibrant reimagining of "West Side Story." "Dog" and "Story" contend for Best Film along with three films that received four Dorian nominations each in all: The bittersweet Japanese relationship drama "Drive My Car," Norway’s acerbic romantic comedy "The Worst Person in the World" and "Tick, Tick. . .Boom!," the poignant musical about the too-short life of Rent creator Jonathan Larson.
