Traditionally the first award nominations announced each year, the Gotham Independent Film Awards celebrate independent film and directors. As independent film has grown in popularity in the last decade or so, several nominees end up joining the list of potential Oscar nominees, such as last year's 12 Years a Slave.
Leading the nominees is Richard Linklater's Boyhood, with four nominations. A special jury prize has been announced for the stars of Foxcatcher: Steve Carrell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo. Special tributes will be given to actress Tilda Swinton, director Bennett Miller, and Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos.
The awards will be handed out December 1 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York.
