Hugh Jackman, Janelle Monáe, Billy Porter, John Oliver and Schitt’s Creek creator-star Dan Levy, plus stars and producers of Killing Eve and Watchmen, offered heartfelt thanks as they virtually accepted awards—and were treated to a symbolic raise of the glass — from GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics during the group’s first TV special tonight.

The Dorians TV Toast 2020, a recorded two-hour program hosted by opinionated talk radio icon Karel and airing on the LGBTQ+ streaming platform Revry, was a hybrid of awards and chat/variety shows. The Toast intermingled music, comedy and special segments with lively banter about the nominees and winners from the organization’s members—and from presenters like sitcom multihyphenate Josh Thomas (Freeform’s Everything’s Gonna Be Okay), Alex Newell (of NBC’s hit Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist), groundbreaking comic actresses Margaret Cho and Lea DeLaria, Hollywood wit Bruce Vilanch and RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars champ Chad Michaels.
