GALECA, the Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics, announced their nominees for the 2021 Dorian Film Awards Nominations, lead by Minari with six nominations and Nomadland with five.

“It’s not a surprise that the films that came out in 2020, one of the country’s most tumultuous years, are fascinating works that feel both deeply personal and subversively political,” said GALECA President Diane Anderson-Minshall in a statement.

“I’m thrilled that unlike some other critics groups, our members have not relegated Minari—one of the year’s most quintessentially American films—just to the foreign-language category. More than anything, Minari and Nomadland show what it means to live with autonomy and self-direction in America today.”
