2017 Gotham Awards Nominations Announced

The Gotham Awards are the first out of the gate to announce their nominations. This is our first look at which films are going to be part of the movie awards conversation this year.

2012 was the last time that the Best Picture winner did not get either a Gotham nomination or win the Gotham award. 12 Years a Slave was nominated. Birdman, Spotlight, and Moonlight all won the Gotham and then won Best Picture.  The time before that was in 2009 when The Hurt Locker was nominated, won the Gotham and went on to win Best Picture.

This year Get Out received the most nominations with 4.  There has been a lot of speculation about the chances of Get Out being recognized during awards season. Movies released early in the year rarely do, but Get Out is that good.

Happy to see Call Me by Your Name and The Florida Project get recognized.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony on November 27th.
