'Les Mis' leads Gay and Lesbian Critics nods

Posted by · 4:25 pm · January 9th, 2013

The Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics’ Association has added its list of nominees to the very tall pile, and in a wholly non-stereotypical turn of events, “Les Misérables” leads the film field with four citations, including one particularly likely to aggravate its detractors — for Visually Striking Film of the Year. “Argo,” “Beasts of the Southern Wild” and “Lincoln” join”Les Mis” in the top category, but there’s more individuality to be found in the more specialized races, where the pleasingly alliterative trio of “The Perks of Being  a Wallflower,” “The Paperboy” and “Pitch Perfect” all feature, while “Keep the Lights On” scored in both the Film of the Year and LGBT Film of the Year fields.
