Morning Brew – “Carol” sweeps the Gay & Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association’s Dorian Awards

Good morning!

As a member of GALECA, I’m happy to say that Carol won several top honors in our annual Dorian Awards: Film of the Year, Director of the Year, Film Actress (Cate Blanchett), LGBTQ Film of the Year and Screenplay of the Year. Director Todd Haynes is also receiving Wilde Artist of the Year. Other winners include Tangerine (Unsung Film of the Year), Amy Schumer (Wilde Wit) and Alicia Vikander (We’re Wilde About You).


The Spinoff writes about Patricia Highsmith and the history behind The Price of Salt.

The Atlantic thinks Carol is misunderstood.

The Telegraph gives us a look at the new season of Call the Midwife. From Emerald Fennel, who plays Patsy:

“We see the continuation of the character’s journeys, including Patsy and Delia’s relationship, which was much more clandestine last series. There were no laws about homosexuality for women at that time but if you were discovered as a lesbian, you would have lost your job as a midwife. It was absolutely frowned upon and not discussed. In series 5, Patsy and Delia are living in Nonnatus House together and they’re carrying on a relationship but nobody knows. It is easy to do because it would never have occurred to people that two women might be having a relationship.”
