JUNE 22, 2022 - The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics—now composed of 385 professional critics and journalists covering film and television—announced its 14th Dorian TV Awards nominations for the best in all of TV, mainstream to LGBTQIA+ content. Leading GALECA members' short list of TV's best, with five nominations each, are HBO's freshman comedy Somebody Somewhere and HBO Max's Hacks.

HBO's wildly provocative teen drama Euphoria follows with four nominations, including nods for star Zendaya, Most Visually Striking TV Show and the group's dubious Campiest TV Show honor (alongside Apple+'s intentionally amusing musical Schmigadoon! and Netflix's oh-so-awkward Lady Di stage tribute Diana: The Musical).

In network nomination counts, HBO tops with 24, Netflix is next with 15 and HBO Max has 13 (that's 37 in all for HBO networks).

GALECA members were drawn to a variety of new shows this past seasons, with ABC's welcome public school comedy Abbott Elementary, the lovely British teen dramedy Heartstopper (Netflix) and surprising dramas Yellowjackets (Showtime) and Severance (Apple TV+) all receiving multiple nods.

Helping christen GALECA's inaugural "You Deserve An Award!" Award to a beloved TV icon are nominees Gillian Anderson, Christine Baranski, Lynda Carter, Kim Cattrall and Cassandra Peterson.

In the running for Wilde Wit: Abbott Elementary star and creator Quinta Brunson, rising comedian Joel Kim Booster (Fire Island), standup comic and TV wunderkind Jerrod Carmichael (Rothaniel), distinctly amusing actress Jennifer Coolidge and Bowen Yang, last year's Dorian winner in the category.

And GALECA LGBTQIA+ TV Trailblazer nominees Carmichael, Margaret Cho, Russell T Davies, Kate McKinnon and Yang are all celebrated "for creating art that inspires empathy, truth and equity."

The full lists of nominees and nomination counts are below. Winners of the 14th Dorian TV Awards will be revealed Wed., Aug. 17.

Televised editions of past Dorian Awards, featuring such winners or presenters as Janelle Monáe, Regina King, Antonio Banderas, Bowen Yang, Olivia Wilde, Hugh Jackman, Dan Levy, Jean Smart, Josh Thomas, Andrew Ahn, Laverne Cox, Billy Porter, Carey Mulligan, Rachel McAdams, Cynthia Nixon, Margaret Cho, Daniel Kaluuya, John Oliver, Olivia Newton-John, Michaela JaéRodriguez, Cheyenne Jackson and Charo, can be streamed on Tubi, Planet Out and Revry TV and GALECA's YouTube channel.

* GALECA members are asked to list their three favorite choices per category in order of preference, with three points going to their first choice, two to the second and one to the third. Programs and performances with the highest tallies earn nominations. More than five nominations in a category is the result of an actual or virtual tie (the latter being a difference of one point).
