This past weekend, actors Olivia Wilde and Antonio Banderas were on hand to accept their Dorian Awards and were feted by the Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics at their annual Winners Toast

Booksmart director Olivia Wilde and Pain and Glory star Antonio Banderas joined the intimate award ceremony hosted by GALECA, held at the home of Hollywood producer Patrick Moran and his television-writer husband Jordan Budde.

The two expressed their gratitude and revealed some plum anecdotes as they accepted their honors from The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics 11th Dorian Awards Winners Toast.

The invitation-only crowd celebrated their wins and toasted the other winners in various film and television categories.

The pre-Super Bowl party also included Q&As with the filmmakers of the Dorian Award-winning (and Oscar-nominated) documentary Honeyland and rising star Andrew Ridings of Comedy Central’s The Other Two, GALECA’s choice for Unsung TV Show of the Year.

According to executive director John Griffiths:

“Guests were amused to hear that the Toast’s setting doubled for legendary studio mogul Jack Warner’s mansion in the filming of Feud: Bette and Joan, the FX miniseries that was named Campy TV Show of the Year by the Society in 2018.”

The event featured libations provided by Writers Tears Irish Whiskey and Massimo Wine. Main sponsors were Warner Horizon Scripted Television and the Stage 13 digital network.

The hallmark of the Society’s winner’s Toast is described by Griffiths as “an intimate and light-hearted Hasty Puddings-esque affair.”

Dorian Award winners get to talk about their project, receive their trophy and enjoy a well-deserved toast and raise of the glass honoring their achievement.

What is GALECA?

GALECA.org, formed in 2009, was created to build “camaraderie and solidarity in an unsettling media environment,” as it championed constructive film and television criticism and elevated the craft of entertainment journalism.

According to Griffiths: “Via panels, screenings, and our annual Dorian Awards, GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics strives to remind at-risk youth, bullies and bigots that the world looks to the Q eye for leads on great and unique movies and TV. And how would we all fare without knowing what’s campy?”

GALECA, The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics, which votes on the annual honors, revealed the winners earlier in January 2020.
