‘Tár’ and ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ Lead Gotham Awards Nominations: Complete List

The Gothams also handed out awards in four television categories. “Mo” won the award for breakthrough series under 40 minutes, while “Pachinko” won in the over-40-minutes category. Ben Whishaw won the Outstanding Performance in a New Series award for “This Is Going to Hurt.” “We Need to Talk About Cosby won the award in the Breakthrough Nonfiction Series category.

Gotham Awards eligibility is restricted to films of more than 70 minutes that were made for less than $35 million. Films must be directed and/or produced and/or written by U.S. citizens or filmmakers permanently based in the United States. Films must also qualify as “filmmaking with a point of view,” which the Gothams define as a work “where the vision of an individual director, producer, writer or writer/director is abundantly evident, and where the film cannot be classically defined as a ‘work for hire.’”

(The show’s special tribute categories are not bound by those rules.)

In the 18 years the Gotham Awards have given out a Best Feature award, the Gotham winner has won the Oscar only five times, most recently with “Nomadland” in 2020.

The Gotham winners were chosen by a number of different juries of “distinguished filmmakers,” according to the Gotham Film & Media Institute. The organization added that the jury is “frequently comprised of directors, writers, producers, editors, actors, directors of photography and others directly associated with making films and television.”

Also at the ceremony, “Hustle” star Adam Sandler and “The Fabelmans” star Michelle Williams received Performer Tributes at the show, while the cast of Andrew Ahn’s “Fire Island” received the Ensemble Tribute. Other special honorees were director Gina Prince-Bythewood (Filmmaker Tribute), Sidney Poitier (Icon Tribute), Audible founder Don Katz (Innovator Tribute), Peter Kujawski and Jason Cassidy of Focus Features (Industry Tribute) and the Venice Film Festival (Gotham Impact Salute).
