2012 Gotham Independent Film Award Winners

Screen Shot 2012-12-05 at 04.41.58

The 2012 Gotham Independent Film Awards were held on November 26th and provided more steam for Moonrise Kingdom and Benh Zeitlin’s engines, which is something I am very happy to see.

Teeny, tiny little Quvenzhané Wallis may have missed out on Breakthrough Actor and Your Sister’s Sister may have beat off stiff competition in the form of Moonrise Kingdom and Silver Linings Playbook to take the prize for Best Ensemble, but with so few awards to hand out on the night, there’s not much room for surprise.

These massive Hollywood superstars on our screen are no longer past and present Oscar contenders, but real people fighting for their lives.
