Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Darren Criss and Annette Bening lead nominations for the Gay & Lesbian Entertainment Critics (GALECA) awards.

Nominations for the group's second annual Dorian Awards were announced on Wednesday.

The lesbian moms flick The Kids Are All Right and Director Darren Aronofsky's much heralded thriller Black Swan were nominated for film of the year along with I Am Love, Toy Story 3 and The Social Network.

Kunis stars opposite Portman in Black Swan. Portman has been nominated in the Performance of the Year category, while Kunis is up for the We're Wilde About You Rising Star award.

Also competing in the rising star category is Darren Criss, the 23-year-old recent Glee acquisition.

Portman faces an uphill climb to win performance of the year. She faces Annette Bening's Nic in The Kids Are All Right along with Christian Bale (The Fighter), Colin Firth (The King's Speech), James Franco (Howl), and Lesley Manville (Animal Kingdom).

Movies competing in the LGBT-Themed Film of the Year category are A Marine Story, Howl, I Love You Phillip Morris, La Mission, The Kids Are All Right and Undertow.

GALECA was formed in 2009 and its 40-or-so members review and write on film, television and pop culture. Winners will be announced on Tuesday, January 18.
