HBO (along with HBO Max) has a total of 32 nominations, followed by Netflix (13) and Amazon (10).

But don’t count “Abbott Primary” out. The critic and audience favorite received four nominations, five when you include creator and star Quinta Brunson’s nomination for the Wilde Award for Witty Award, given to performers, writers or Commentators, their observations are both challenging and interesting. Brunson was also nominated for Best Television Performance.

The Dorian Awards honor film and television from an advocacy perspective, recognizing mainstream and LGBTQIA+ titles, with a special focus on shows that have a positive representation of queer culture. GALECA also advocates for better pay and opportunities for members, especially those who represent the most underrepresented and vulnerable groups.
