"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Gotham Award Winners & Favourite Cheekiness

The Gotham Awards proved a great night for multiple films,but especially for A24 who dominated the prizes with multiple awards for bothFirst ReformedandEighth Gradeand even a Best Actress win for our beloved Toni Collette inHereditary.Not that other studios didn't get some attention.Sony Picture Classics nabbed a surprise win in the Best Feature category and Fox Searchlight'sThe Favouritegot a lot of attention,given that it received essentially two special prizes with an Ensemble Award and a tribute to Rachel Weisz.Weisz brought her co-stars along in cutout form in the acceptance speech -love it!

The list of winners and a few notes are after the jump...

Gotham Nominations: "The Favourite"and "First Reformed" Lead

by Nathaniel R

It's the first official awards announcement of the season!The Gotham Awards,the East Coast's answer to the Independent Spirit Awards,have announced their nominations with the palace intrigue tragicomedyThe Favouriteand the existential heavy drama ofFirst Reformedsharing the lead with 3 matching honors each: Best Feature,Best Screenplay,and one acting citation (a special ensemble prize for the former and Ethan Hawke for the latter).One assumes that they'd have both been nominated for director,too,but one of the quirks of Gotham is that they don't have a Director category,only a category for brand new directors and we love the nominees there,especially Bo Burnham forEighth Gradeand Ari Aster forHereditary.

Other films receiving much needed good news since they were released before the fall glut and needed awards bodies to be reminded of them over the next few months:Leave No Trace,The Wife,Sorry to Bother You,andThe Rider.The complete nominations and a few more comments after the jump...

A New Awards Group?Yup,Another One for the Indies

Over the years I realize that The Film Experience has been a bit of a killjoy in terms of one very specific development that other awards sites fawn on: the explosion of film award groups.亚博主页It's just that over the years its been ridiculous to see the numbers explode but not see any correlative expansion of ideas or discussion about what constitutes great cinema.If all awards groups do is rubber stamp each other and watch the same 20 movies,we should just stick to the 3 or 4 original groups and be done with it!

This preamble is a way of saying that when I heard there was a new Independent Film Award organization I initially rolled my eyes and shrugged it off with a tweet.Weren't The Gothams and the Spirits enough?But I've had a bit of a change of heart and am keeping an open mind after further investigation.If you're going to create a new film award,you need a purpose.And the American Independent Film Awards seems to have one.In fact,it looks like they're planning to do exactly what the Independent Spirit awards originally set out to do but have long since wandered away from as they've become a mainstream big publicity party for the mini-majors and their Oscar campaigns.The AIFA will focus on movies with budgets of $1 million or less.In other words,true indies as studios don't make films that size...
