‘Yellowjackets’ ‘Abbott Elementary’ Among Best Shows – Deadline


Galeca: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics today announced the winners of its 14th Dorian TV Awards, which recognizes both mainstream and LGBTQIA+ programs. Galeca is comprised of 360 film, TV and pop culture critics and journalists in the U.S., Canada, Australia and the U.K. See more of this year’s winners in the list below.

The group chose Showtime’s drama Yellowjackets for Best TV Drama. Melanie Lynskey, star of that searing, decades-spanning mystery-drama, scored Best TV Performance.

ABC’s pointedly funny Abbott Elementary won Best TV Comedy.

Another school-set hit, Netflix’s Heartstopper, scored Best LGBTQ TV Show for its tender and exhilarating tale of friendship, love and romance among British teens.

The group deemed HBO’s Euphoria Most Visually Striking TV Show, while Galeca dubbed Peacock’s over-the-top girl group comedy Girls5eva Campiest TV Show.

The first installment of The White Lotus, writer Mike White’s acerbic HBO anthology, landed Best TV Movie or Miniseries. Lotus star Jennifer Coolidge took Best Supporting TV Performance for her turn as a certain guest with lots of baggage. Interestingly, Coolidge also won Galeca’s Wilde Wit award this year. The honor is normally reserved for comics and late night talk show hosts.

Galeca’s inaugural TV Icon honor came out a tie between Christine Baranski and Cassandra Peterson.

In another special tribute, actor-comedian Jerrod Carmichael was named LGBTQIA+ TV Trailblazer “for creating art that inspires empathy, truth and equity.”

GALECA’s 14th Dorian Film Awards nominees will be revealed in January.
