Here’s everything you need to know about this year’s Gotham Awards
The 2021 Gotham Awards are next week which means awards season is officially nigh. This year’s ceremony will take place on Monday, November 29 in New York City—which means you can tune in after you’ve spent your weekend filling up on turkey and arguing about football with your extended family.
Though the Gotham Awards aren’t always a reliable indicator of Oscars wins, sometimes the films that win big at the Gothams also win big with the Academy. For example, A.V. Club favorite Nomadlandtook home the Gotham Award for Best Feature and it also won Best Picture at both the Golden Globes and the Oscars.
This year, Spencer’s Kristen Stewart and Cyrano’s Peter Dinklage will receive the Gotham Awards Performer Tributes, but they aren’t the only ones receiving tributes that evening. The Power Of The Dogdirector Jane Campion will get the Director Tribute, the cast of The Harder They Fallwill get the Ensemble Tribute, Kathleen Collins will get the Icon Tribute, and Eamonn Bowles will get the Industry Tribute.
The Gotham Awards will also give The Actors Fund its Impact Salute, giving recognition to the way the Fund provided support to the acting and performing arts community during the height of the pandemic.
This is also the first year that the Gothams has gender-neutral categories. The previously split, gendered categories are now combined simply under “performer.”
The A.V. Club will be on the red carpet and in the building for the evening’s ceremony, but if you’d like to watch along from the comfort of your own home, you can stream it over on Facebook. The Gotham Awards are slated to begin at 7PM CT/8PM EST.
