'Kids Are All Right,' 'Black Swan' Top Gay & Lesbian Critics Nominations

Natalie Portman in "Black Swan"

The films' stars Annette Bening, Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis are among those receiving acting recognition.

The Kids Are All Right and Black Swan have earned three nominations each from the Gay & Lesbian Entertainment Critics, which has announced nominations for its second annual Dorian Awards.

Kids and Swan were nominated for film of the year along with I Am Love, The Social Network and Toy Story 3.

Kids also picked up noms for Annette Bening for film performance of the year and LGBT-themed film. Swan's Natalie Portman also scored for film performance of the year, while her co-star Mila Kunis was nominated in the rising star category, along with Glee's Darren Criss, The Social Network's Andrew Garfield, Kick-Ass' Chloe Grace Moretz and Please Give's Sarah Steele.

For LGBT-themed film of the year, Kids will compete with A Marine Story; Howl; I Love You, Phillip Morris; La Mission; and the Peruvian film Undertow.

A few nominees might have wished they had escaped the group's notice, though. The movies that rated a mention in the category of campy -- intentional or not -- film of the year are Burlesque, Charlie St. Cloud, Joaquin Phoenix's I'm Still Here, Piranha 3-D and Sex and the City 2.

In the corresponding TV category, the camp nominees are Hot in Cleveland, Sarah Palin's Alaska, The A List, The Colbert Report and the Real Housewives franchise.

Winners in the 17 categories will be announced Jan. 18.
