The Gotham Awards are one of the year’s biggest celebrations on independent cinema, and they’ve returned to New York this Monday night. The list of winners was as impressive as it gets, with films Anatomy of a Fall and Past Lives and Netflix series Beef leading the way.
Past Lives came into the night as one of the most-nominated films and walked away with the ceremony’s most coveted accolade. It defeated the likes of Passages, Reality, Showing Up, and A Thousand and One to be named best feature at this year’s Gotham Awards.
As for Anatomy of a Fall, Justine Triet’s latest film emerged victorious in two categories. It defeated the likes of All of Us Strangers and Poor Things to walk away with the trophy for the best international feature, in addition to winning the award for best screenplay.
The TV field at this year’s Gotham Award included some worthy contenders, but none of them could stand their ground to Netflix’s Beef. This series won two awards: breakthrough series under 40 minutes and outstanding performance in a new series (Ali Wong)—while A Small Light was named the best breakthrough series over 40 minutes.
