‘Yellowjackets,’ ‘Abbott Elementary’ and ‘Heartstopper’ Win Dorian TV Awards

The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics also honored ”The White Lotus“ (plus star Jennifer Coolidge) and Jerrod Carmichael

GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics on Wednesday named “Yellowjackets,” “Abbott Elementary” and “Heartstopper” as the best in entertainment for its 14th Dorian TV Awards.

Showtime’s “Yellowjackets” won Best TV Drama, while one of its stars, Melanie Lynskey, was honored for Best TV Performance. ABC’s “Abbott Elementary” nabbed Best TV Comedy, and Netflix’s “Heartstopper” nabbed Best LGBTQ TV Show.

Among the other honorees were “Euphoria” (Most Visually Striking TV Show), “Girls5eva” (Campiest TV Show) and “White Lotus” (Best TV Movie or Miniseries). Standout “White Lotus” cast member Jennifer Coolidge was a double winner, bagging Best Supporting TV Performance and GALECA’s Wilde Wit award.

GALECA gave a special tribute to Jerrod Carmichael, whom the group named LGBTQIA+ TV Trailblazer for his critically hailed “Jerrod Carmichael: Rothaniel” standup show (streamed on HBO Max). As GALECA Executive Director John Griffiths noted, “Rothaniel Jerrod Carmichael, raised in a low-income household in North Carolina, was just 26 when he helped convince NBC to put his own sitcom on the air back in 2015.” By coming out in “Rothaniel,” Griffiths said, “He did so with the sort of self-effacing wit, vulnerability and observational humor that would make his heroes Richard Pryor and George Carlin proud. Carmichael has no doubt helped a lot of people turn a page.” 

GALECA is made up of 360 film, TV and pop culture critics and journalists in the United States, Canada, the U.K. and Australia. It sponsors the Dorian Awards, which, the group said in a statement, “honor the best in film and TV mainstream to queer+. The Dorians exist in part to remind bullies, bigots and LGBTQIA+ communities’ at-risk youth that the world loves the Q+ eye on entertainment.”

GALECA will announce the 14th Dorian Film Awards nominees in January. Below, the complete list of Dorian TV Award winners.
