Gotham Award Winners

The Gotham Awards highlight breakthroughs in the Indie World. They don't have many awards, and they're more about highlighting what's the best of the "new." That said, their choice of The Hurt Locker for Best Feature seems to me the inevitable beginning of a landslide of appreciation for the film that ends in multiple Oscar nods and wins. It's very difficult for me to see more than maybe two other films give it a run at the Academy at this point.

Best Feature: The Hurt Locker

Best Documentary: Food, Inc.

Best Ensemble Performance: The Hurt Locker

Breakthrough Director: Robert Siegel for Big Fan

Breakthrough Actor: Catalina Saavedra for The Maid

Best Film Not PLaying at a Theater Near You: You Won't Miss Me; by Russo-Young
