The group says its annual Dorian Awards "toast the finest in movies, TV shows and performances of all kinds, not just LGBT-centric."

On the television side, "Homeland" and "American Horror Story" tied for best drama. "Girls" won for Best Comedy.

The television acting awards went to Jessica Lange for "American Horror Story" and Damien Lewis for "Homeland."

The best LGBT shows were "New Normal" and "Modern Family."

Best campy show was "Liz and Dick," which featured Lindsey Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor.

The award winners, announced Wednesday, will be honored Feb. 17 in Los Angeles at the Fourth Annual GALECA Dorian Awards Winners Afternoon Tea, said.
