A Sin­gle Man lauded at first Do­rian Awards

Edmonton Journal - - A&E -

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.
