Andrew Haigh’s All Of Us Strangers at Searchlight Pictures leads the 33rd Gotham Awards nominations with four nods and is among the best feature contenders alongside A24’s Past Lives by Celine Song and The Zone Of Interest from Jonathan Glazer.
Justine Triet’s Cannes Palme d’Or winner Anatomy Of A Fall at Neon, Lila Aviles’ Mexican drama Totem at Sideshow/Janus Films, and Yorgos Lanthimos’ Poor Things from Searchlight are also nominated for international feature.
Past Lives vies for best feature with Ira Sach’s Passages (Mubi), Tina Satter’s Reality (HBO Films), Kelly Reichardt’s Showing Up (A24), and A.V. Rockwell’s A Thousand And One (Focus Features).
Documentary contenders include Mstyslav Chernov’s 20 Days In Mariupol (PBS Distribution), Lea Glob’s Apolonia, Apolonia (Danish Documentary Production), and Kaouther Ben Hania’s Four Daughters (Kino Lorber).
Gotham Film & Media Institute removed the $35m budget cap this year and studio and streamer films are among the contenders, although independent films made a good showing in Tuesday’s announcement.
The gender-neutral acting categories pits Killers Of The Flower Moon‘s Lily Gladstone for The Unknown Country (Music Box) against Past Lives‘ Greta Lee, Cailee Spaeny for Priscilla (A24), Jeffrey Wright for American Fiction (Orion Pictures/Amazon MGM Studios), and Andrew Scott for All Of Us Strangers, among others.
