GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics—composed of 260 mainly U.S. journalists covering film and television—named its final-round choices for 2019's finest movies, performances and more across a host of mainstream and LGBTQ-focused categories.

South Korean director Bong Joon-ho's Parasite won in five categories, including Film of the Year, Director and Screenplay. Renee Zellweger took Performance of the Year—Actress for Judy, with Antonio Banderas the top choice in the actor race. The Society's Rising Star of the year was deemed to be Florence Pugh ( Little Women ).

Among the professional LGBTQ journalists group's trademark categories, Booksmart scored as Unsung Film of the Year, while Cats took the Campy Flick of the Year category.

FX's Pose again won TV Drama of the Year and LGBTQ TV Drama for the second year—and its star Billy Porter took another Dorian win as well—while Comedy Central's The Other Two was named best Unsung TV Show. Amazon's Fleabag was anointed TV Comedy of the Year, with star-creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge reigning as TV Performance of the Year—Actress and Wilde Wit of the Year.

Lady Gaga won a special vote as Wilde Artist of the Decade. Gaga's duet with Bradley Cooper on "Shallow" at last year's Oscars also counted with the group as the TV Musical Performance of the Year.

Olivia Wilde, the first-time director of Booksmart, will be receiving a special honor at the group's Dorian Awards Winners Toast on Sunday, Feb. 2, in Los Angeles.
