The 27th annual Gotham Awards were held Nov. 27 in New York City, hosted by John Cameron Mitchell.
While the Gotham Awards may not be the most known award show out there, they’re often a good indicator of what’s to come with the Oscars. For the past three years, the winner of Best Feature at the Gotham Awards — Moonlight, Spotlight and Birdman — went on to win Best Picture at the Oscars.
The Gotham Awards also marks the official kick-off of the Independent Filmmaker Project (IFP) for the 2017-2018 awards season, according to Indiewire.
Jordan Peele’s Get Out was the biggest winner of the night, taking home three separate awards — Best Screenplay (much deserved), Breakthrough Director and the Audience Award. Best Feature, however, went to Call Me by Your Name — a film that’s only been getting more and more good buzz in the past couple of months.
Overall, the list of winners and nominees is an interesting mix that has us really excited to see some of the movies still coming out in December.
