nominees//27th GOTHAM INDEPENDENT FILM AWARDS

AWARDS COVERAGE



With somewhat of an unorthodox journey to awards season, Jordan Peele's Get Out led the nominations for the 27th Gotham Independent Film Awards, announced today in New York.

Presented by the Independent Filmmaker Project, the Gotham Awards celebrate the best in independent filmmaking.

Get Out received nominations for Best Feature, Breakthrough Director, Screenplay, and Actor (Daniel Kaluuya). When it was released during the first quarter of the year, Get Out surprised by becoming a critical and commercial hit. Many are predicting it will end up in the mix of the final awards race of the season: the Academy Awards.

Other films to get recognized with nominations include The Florida Project, Lady Bird, and Mudbound. Current Oscar frontrunner Call Me By Your Name also picked up a Best Feature nod.

The 27th Gotham Awards take place November 27, 2017, with John Cameron Mitchell set to host.
