The Favourite Leads 2018 GALECA Dorian Nominations

Melissa McCarthy in Can You Ever Forgive Me?

GALECA never lets me down! Which might be because I'm a member, or maybe it's the other way around. Anyway, the Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association's 2018 nominations have been announced, with Yorgos Lanthimos' The Favourite leading the pack with eight nods including Film of the Year and LGBTQ Film of the Year. Two of the top award's nominees are also up for the LGBTQ-specific award, with Marielle Heller's Can You Ever Forgive Me? the other of the two.
