2014-galeca-nominations

No one loves awards shows more than the gays. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler acknowledged that fact during their hilarious Golden Globes opening monologue. It’s only natural we have our own critics association to declare the best in film and television from the past year. The Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association (GALECA) is like the Hollywood Foreign Press Association but just queer. It consists of 80 entertainment journalists in the U.S. and Europe. The LGBT group just revealed the nominees for their annual Dorian Awards.

In addition to the typical serious categories, the Dorians honor the campiest films as well. That explains how Lindsay Lohan’s The Canyons and the box office bomb Carrie remake made the film shortlist and House of Versace and Sharknado were honored on the TV side. The association also highlights quality shows that deserve more recognition. Daniel Radcliffe’s Kill Your Darlings and The Carrie Diaries were among some of the nominees.

GALECA has named Lily Tomlin the recipient of its special “Timeless Star Tribute,” given to “an actor or performer whose exemplary career is marked by character, wisdom and wit.” Check out all the individuals in the running for a Dorian below. Winners will be announced Tuesday, January 21, and GALECA’s annual toast will be held Sunday, March 9, in Hollywood.

After several teaser videos, we finally have our first full-length movie trailer for The Canyons. The erotic thriller is a contemporary L.A. noir about the dangers of sexual obsession and ambition, both personally and professionally, among a group of young people in their 20′s and how one chance meeting connected to the past unravels all of their lives, resulting in deceit, paranoia, cruel mind games and ultimately violence. Filmed for only $250,000, the film was picked up by IFC Films and scheduled to hit theaters next month. The neo-noir thriller stars Nolan Gerard Funk, porn star James Deen and none other than Lindsay Lohan.

Speaking of 27-year-old trainwreck, she’s reportedly doing quite well in rehab. With her court-ordered 90 day treatment almost up, doctors at Cliffside Malibu are urging her to extend it by 30 days. Problem is, Lohan has to be in Venice for the film’s premiere next month. Hopefully, she picks her long-term health over a premiere. Fingers crossed that she also follows her doctors’ advice not to live with her mom after her rehab stint is over. Dina is such an enabler. Check out The Canyons trailer below.

Wow! Yet again, I’m writing about Lindsay Lohan in a “work-related” post…hopefully it continues that way. Aside from her leading role in the upcoming Lifetime film, Liz & Dick, Lohan is also starring in a film called The Canyons and a teaser trailer has just been released. She stars alongside James Deen, who is better known for his work as a very well-endowed porn star (straight).

The Canyons is described as “a contemporary L.A. noir about the dangers of sexual obsession and ambition, both personally and professionally, among a group of young people in their 20s and how one chance meeting connected to the past unravels all of their lives, resulting in deceit, paranoia, cruel mind games and ultimately violence.” Lohan plays Tara, described as being “sweet as sin,” while Deen plays Christian, described as a “HUGE new talent“.

The retro trailer promises that “In The Canyons, everything goes. Where the sex is as cheap as the budget… and the only way out is death!” Watch the…different trailer below. No release date has been set (and no dialogue is spoken in the trailer).
