The Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association (GALECA) has announced their winners of the 2012 film season. Called the “Dorian Awards,” named after the title character of Oscar Wilde’s “The Picture of Dorian Gray,” the accolade honors “the finest in movies, TV shows and performances of all kinds, not just LGBT-centric.”

According to their website, their mission is:

To remind the world of our community’s influence on the screen arts and socket at large as tast-makers and trendsetters.

To champion the art of witty, wise and historically knowledgeable film and TV criticism. 

To help advance a stronger and healthier gay community by supporting programs for at-risk youth, disease prevention, recovery and civil rights.

Formed in 2009, the association is comprised of critics and entertainment journalist who write on television and film for noteworthy print, online and broadcast outlets. 

LGBT wins include Keep the Lights on for LGBT Film of the Year, How to Survive a Plauge for Documentary of the Year, a tie between Modern Family and The New Normal for LGBT TV Show of the Year, queer actor Ezra Miller for the Newcomer Award, Ryan Murphy for Wilde Artist of the YEar, and Sir Ian McKellen honored with the Timeless Award.
