A Single Man lauded at first Dorian Awards


The movie A Single Man was the big winner at the inaugural Dorian Awards, the first kudos from the Gay and Lesbian Entertainm­ent Critics Associatio­n, newly launched by Us Weekly TV critic John Griffiths.

The awards, which draw their name from Oscar Wilde’s The Portrait of Dorian Gray, are intended to reflect gay interest, rather than focusing entirely on gay content.

A Single Man took best picture; lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgen- der film; and film per for mance of the year for Colin Firth.

In the television categories, Grey Gardens won for TV drama while Drew Barr ymore took performanc­e for TV drama for her role in the HBO telepic; Jane Lynch ( Glee) drew the TV musical or comedy performanc­e nod; and LGBT show of the year was Prayers for Bobby.
