    The 2014 Gotham Awards nominations will be announced on October 23.
     
    What should we expect? Are there any strong contenders?

    “Boyhood” will obviously be nominated for Best Feature. Ellar Coltrane will probably get in Breakthrough Actor. Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke may show up in Best Actress and Actor respectively. The categories are for “leading or significant featured roles” and they are in the year’s most acclaimed independent movie, so their screentime might not hurt them.

    “Whiplash” can get nominations for Best Feature, Breakthrough Director, Breakthrough Actor (Miles Teller) and Best Actor (J.K. Simmons who fits the “significant featured role” description).

    “The Grand Budapest Hotel” seems to be likely for Best Feature and Best Actor for Ralph Fiennes.

    “Birdman” is a contender in Best Feature and Best Actor for Michael Keaton.

    “Foxcatcher” has chances in Best Feature and Best Actor (I guess they would go for Steve Carell over Channing Tatum).

    “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby” can get nominations for Breakthough Director and Best Actress (Jessica Chastain).

    “Dear White People” can get in Best Feature and Breakthrough Director.

    “Wild” has a chance at a Best Actress nomination (Reese Witherspoon).

    What are your thoughts?

    Indiewire shares their predictions (I remember them doing it the last couple of years as well):

    That’s an interesting article. Thanks for sharing it, 24Emmy.

    I didn’t even think of Julianne Moore. She’s probably in, even though “Still Alice” remains a mystery at this point.

    I guess Bill Hader would qualify for Breakthrough Actor. He is well known but not for his work in movies. This could definitely be considered his breakthrough film performance.

    Well, Boyhood was a lock. Birdman and Love is Strange made sense given their reviews and NYC-settings. Grand Budapest was just a lucky guess from their history with Wes. 

    I thought for some reason that only American films could get nominated, so I wasn’t even considering films like Under the Skin or Tracks. Great nominations though, in any case!

    My favorite nomination is probably Riz Ahmed, even though he broke through four years ago.

    Such an interesting list of nominees!  There’s a few I have on my must-see list.

    I hope Oscar is paying attention to a few of these outsideofthebox choices.

    So happy Bill Hader got a nomination! Hopefully this will be a good sign for him at Spirit and the Globes (maybe even others :)) I’m upset Ralph didn’t get in even when nominating Grand Budapest for Picture. Would have rathered him over Hawke. Nice to see Mia also recognized as well as Jenny Slate! Very odd that Gugu wasn’t nominated for Belle

    I love all the Boyhood noms. Ethan Hawke was an extra surprise.

     

    Here’s hoping they don’t have any webcast issues this year.

    – The nominating committee for the Best Actor category voted to award a Special Jury Award jointly to the three leading actors in Foxcatcher – Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum – for their ensemble work.

    – This year the Gotham Audience Award nominees are comprised of the 15 films nominated for Best Feature, Best Documentary, and the Bingham Ray Breakthrough Director Award. The winner will be selected by online voting of IFP members.

    – In addition to the competitive awards, Gotham Award Tributes will be given to actor Tilda Swinton, director Bennett Miller and Industry Tribute recipient Netflix’s Ted Sarandos.

    Love that Boyhood got plenty of recognition, especially Ethan Hawke. Grand Budapest Hotel was a nice surprise, I’ll admit. But I’m wondering why Under The Skin is on here, though. I thought that movie stunk.
