The Gotham Awards were last night, and while these don't make a huge difference on the race, they are worth noting. You can see my post on the nominees here, and I correctly predicted four of these. You can see all the nominees and winners listed on the Gotham website.
And, here they are:
|Best Feature/Inside Llewyn Davis|
|Best Documentary/The Act of Killing|
|Best Actor/Matthew McConaughey|
|Best Actress/Brie Larson|
|Best Breakthrough Director/Ryan Cooglar|
|Best Breakthrough Actor/Michael B. Jordan|
I'm actually proud of myself for correctly predicting Brie Larson. She feels like an indie darling this year. I'm really shocked to see the blow that '12 Years a Slave' took this morning. It lost everything it was up for, and considering that it has the most Oscar buzz of any film in contention, I really expected it to at least take Picture. McConaughey is on a role right now (he also took Rome a few weeks ago) and 'Inside Llewyn Davis' is getting some recent ink that has me thinking I was a fool to underestimate it!
NYFCC announces today as well, so yay!!!
