Gotham Awards: Winners List

New York, Nov 30 (TIWN): The 2021 Gotham Awards are taking place in New York, recognizing independent content across film and TV.

Two Netflix titles, The Lost Daughter and Passing, topped this year’s film nominees with five nominations each, followed by three nods apiece for Apple’s CODA and Kino Lorber’s Test Pattern.

On the TV side, the Gotham Awards is among the first awards bodies to recognize buzzy new series Squid Game, The White Lotus and Reservation Dogs, which each scored two nominations.

For this year’s awards, the performance categories are now gender-neutral and the Gothams added two more TV categories.

The Gotham Awards is also honoring Power of the Dog director Jane Campion, Spencer star Kristen Stewart, Magnolia exec Eamonn Bowles, the cast of The Harder They Fall,Cyrano star Peter Dinklage, The Actors Fund and, posthumously, activist and filmmaker Kathleen Collins with the Gothams’ first Icon Tribute.

At the start of the show, CODA star Emilia Jones took home the award for breakthrough performer. “When you’re making a movie about a culture that you don’t belong to, it’s important to surround yourself with people who are a part of it. And on CODA, we surrounded ourselves with the best: Marlee Matlin, Troy Kotsur and Daniel Durant,” Jones thanked her costars, who are members of the deaf community. “They took me under their wing the minute they met me.”  Julianne Moore and Spencer director Pablo Larraín presented Kristen Stewart with the performer tribute award.  “To work opposite her is to feel truly seen and partnered. She elevates everything,” Moore said. ”What she presents onscreen and in life is sometimes challenging to people because it’s like she’s skinless. She demonstrates a truth that can feel uncomfortable, but cool at the same time because she’s cool right. I mean, there’s no one cooler than her.”  “Kirsten changed my life,” Larraín added.

“You’re a fucking miracle of cinema.”   “When you make one movie, it’s to make one more. If you’re allowed to make one more movie after the first one you make, you’re so lucky. And it’s a cool award show to be at because of that,” Stewart thanked the Gotham Awards.  Summer of Soul director Questlove took to the stage to highlight the Quest Love EDU Scholarship in partnership with iHeartMedia and Gotham. The scholarship awards full tuition to five undergraduate students of color currently enrolled at historically black colleges and universities, in which they will also have the opportunity to attend an 8-week summer workshop program to apply practical skills in media production and storytelling.  “I would first like to commend the Gotham Awards for eliminating gender from their awards categories because true talent shines through the constructs meant to separate us,” said Asia Kate Dillon presenting the award for outstanding performance in a new series, an award that was ultimately awarded to two nominees: Ethan Hawke in The Good Lord Bird and Thuso Mbedu in The Underground Railroad.  “I’ve never been nominated where the male and female performances were not separated and its very powerful thing to see these clips and see us not defined by our gender,” Hawke said in his acceptance speech. “I wish that the women in this room had as many opportunities as the men. Directors don’t get differentiated by gender. I never understood why actors do, so I’m so proud to share this award. It’s a really beautiful moment actually.” 

Following his win, Hawke presented the tribute award to his friend and fellow actor Peter Dinklage.  A full list of this year’s nominees follows, which will be updated live as winners are announced during the in-person event at New York’s Cipriani Wall Street.
