Richard Linklater’s Boyhood was nominated for four Gotham Independent Film Awards, including a nod for Best Feature. Also competing for best picture are Birdman, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Love Is Strange, and Under the Skin.
While the Gothams celebrate only independent film, they are one of the first notable—if not the most reliable predictor—year-end movie awards. Last year, the Gothams rewarded Inside Llewyn Davis and Short Term 12‘s Brie Larson, in addition to Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyer’s Club.
Boyhood was also recognized for Ethan Hawke in the Best Actor category, Patricia Arquette in Best Actress, and Ellar Coltrane in Breakthrough Actor.
The Gotham’s nominating committee for the Best Actor category—of which EW‘s Mark Harris was a member—voted to award a joint Special Jury Award to the three leading actors in Foxcatcher—Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum. Their film’s director, Bennett Miller, will also receive one of three Gotham Award Tributes, along with Tilda Swinton and Netflix’s Ted Sarandos.
The Gotham Awards ceremony will be held Dec. 1.
