The 25th annual Gotham Independent Film Awards were held in NYC on Monday night marking the beginning of the film industry’s award season. The big winner of the evening proved to be Tom McCarthy’s ensemble drama Spotlight, and what an impressive ensemble it is; Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber, John Slattery, Stanley Tucci, Billy Crudup and Brian D’Arcy James.

 

Spotlight took home ‘Best Feature’ and ‘Best Screenplay’ and the cast also received a special Gotham Jury Award for their ensemble work. Upon receiving the ensemble award along with the rest of the crew, Mark Ruffalo said; “To get one actor to give an ego-sublimated, selfless performance is an achievement, to get a whole group of actors do it together is a frickin’ miracle!”

 

Last week, Spotlight received five Spirit Award nominations – which points towards the film becoming a fierce ‘Best Picture’ contender at the Oscars. The Revenant and Carol – you better watch out. Other happy winners include Paul Dano who won best actor for Love &  Mercy and newcomer Bel Powley who won best actress for her turn in The Diary of a Teenage Girl, beating Oscar favourite Cate Blanchett.

 

Todd Haynes, Steve Golin, Robert Redford and Helen Mirren received this year’s career tributes. Check out all the winners below:
