    New York, NY (October 21, 2021) – The Gotham Film & Media Institute announced today the nominations for the 31st Annual Gotham Awards, singling out 29 feature films, 16 series, and 32 performances for recognition in twelve award categories.

    “We congratulate the 2021 Gotham Award nominees and look forward to celebrating together live and in person in a few weeks. This year, as previously noted, we are proud to introduce gender neutral categories for our acting awards as we continue to execute upon our mission to champion inclusivity and celebrate the boldest storytellers in the world” said Jeffrey Sharp, Executive Director of The Gotham.

    In addition to making all performance categories gender neutral, those categories have been restructured into Outstanding Leading and Supporting Performance categories for feature films (joining the already existing Breakthrough Performer category) and the addition of an Outstanding Performance category for series. A new category for nonfiction series has also been added.

    As the first major awards ceremony of the fall season, the Gotham Awards provide critical early recognition and media attention to worthy independent films and series and their writers, directors, producers, and actors. The awards are also unique for their ability to assist in catapulting award recipients prominently into national awards season attention.

    Nominees are selected by committees of film and television critics, journalists, festival programmers, and film curators. Separate juries of writers, directors, actors, producers, editors, and others directly involved in making films will determine the final Gotham Award recipients. The Gotham Awards ceremony will take place live and in person on Monday, November 29, 2021 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.

    Love the mentions for Oscar and Tessa.

    And Reed Birney! Maybe the Mass crew was stuck on the Gotham committees’ idea of “supporting” which Reed most easily fits. 😛

    I can actually see Passing winning this and do better in general than expected with other NY-area critics and indie groups.

    I have a feeling “Summer of Soul” might be the high profile doc snub at the end of the day, because I don’t really see it in talks to win and it’s often these more cultural profile docs that get left off even if they crack all the precursors.

    There were separate committees deciding the Feature and Performance nominations (as I think there will be to decide the winners as well).

    Patel and Cage snubs even though their movies made it are laughable. They were Green Knight/Pig and were talked about more than other actors who made the line-up. By actors I don’t mean actresses cause Colman obviously has the most buzz of anyone.

    I’m VERY surprised that Reed Birney was the only Mass cast member to receive a nomination.

    Olivia Colman seems like a lock to me for the win.Hopeuflly her Oscar chances increase.

    This is the Gothams, no one is locked here. They’re extremely unpredictable for most of the time.

    It’s been a while for me………….

    Why did they combine Male & Female Lead altogether? Same with Supporting????

    Dev Patel not nominated is a shock…………….Passing looks like it might clean up……….It’s either Olivia Colman or Tessa Thompson for Lead. Passing might get Feature. Ruth Negga or Marlee Matlin for Supporting. Rebecca Hall for Screenplay and maybe Breakthrough Director, either her or Maggie Gyllenhaal. Emilia Jones for Breakthrough Performance. Don’t know who will win International Feature or Documentary.
