PrizeFighter: What the Gothams, NYFCC and NBR really mean for the Oscar race

In the last 24 hours, the filmmakers behind Boyhood, Birdman and A Most Violent Year have had a lot to celebrate. Boyhood walked away from the New York Film Critics Circle with three top prizes—for film, director Richard Linklater and actress Patricia Arquette. Meanwhile, the Gotham Independent Film Awards crowned Birdman its best feature and Michael Keaton its best actor. (Seriously, how could the Gothams resist awarding film’s first Batman? Keaton went with the joke, quipping, “It’s good to be back home.”) Then there’s A Most Violent Year, which isn’t on most Oscar predictors’ lists—but was named best picture of the year by the National Board of Review anyway.

So, does this mean Boyhood, Birdman, and A Most Violent Year are the frontrunners in the Oscar race? Not exactly. READ FULL STORY

'Boyhood' leads Gotham Awards nominations

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.

Gotham Awards: Jack Black, Jared Leto and more from the red carpet + full list of winners

Matt Damon, Jack Black, Emily Blunt, Jared Leto and more turned up at the Independent Film Project’s 22nd annual Gotham Awards in downtown New York City last night to honor the best of independent cinema. Girls actor Alexander Karpovsky may have been a presenter at the event, but he was most excited about watching host Mike Birbiglia take the stage. “I’m a huge Mike Birbiglia fan so I’m looking forward to his jokes,” he said on the red carpet.

When we caught up with Birbiglia, he said he prepared for the gig with a little help from his followers. “I wrote some jokes, then I threw a lot of them out and then I got my Twitter followers to write jokes so I don’t have to take credit for mean things.” Birbiglia also revealed that he worked as a coat-check person at the Gotham Awards when he first moved to New York City 12 years ago. “They paid me more then than I’m being paid tonight,” he quipped, while adding he didn’t bring a coat to the event “out of respect.” READ FULL STORY
