The Gotham Awards are one of the major ceremonies dedicated to the independent film and they set the stage for the rest of the award season. This award show took place on Monday night in New York, and Past Lives, Anatomy of a Fall, and Beef emerged as the biggest winners of the night.
Past Lives was one of the front-runners for the best feature trophy, and it managed to live up to the high expectations. It faced tough competition in Passages, Reality, Showing Up, and A Thousand and One but eventually took this award home.
Justine Triet’s Anatomy of a Fall was the only film to walk away with two accolades at this year’s Gotham Awards. It was named the best international feature, in addition to winning the trophy for the best screenplay.
Lily Gladstone (The Unknown Country) and Charles Melton (May December) won big in the acting field and picked up awards for outstanding lead and supporting performance, respectively.
Netflix’s limited series Beef collected two awards in the TV field, including breakthrough series under 40 minutes and outstanding performance in a new series (Ali Wong). It was closely followed by A Small Light, which was named the breakthrough series over 40 minutes.
The 2023 Gotham Awards took place on November 27 at the Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.
