The 33rd annual ceremony will take place on Monday, November 27th at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.

Earlier this year, The Gotham Awards have removed the budget cap for entries, making big-budget films such as “Oppenheimer,” “Napoleon,” “The Color Purple” and “Killers of the Flower Moon” eligible; However, IndieWire can confirm that these films were not submitted for consideration.

However, among the blockbusters submitted, Ryan Gosling’s coiffed, highly committed performance in “Barbie” was nominated for the Outstanding Supporting Actor category. The rest of the nominees have a distinct indie flavor, in keeping with the organization’s history and tradition.

Special tributes were previously announced to honor “Maestro” with the Gotham Cultural Icon & Creator Tribute, paying homage to Leonard Bernstein, the legendary musician, conductor, composer, teacher and author, while honoring Bradley Cooper’s masterful achievement that is Bernstein’s story captures on film; “Air,” featuring the Gotham Visionary Icon & Creator Tribute, honoring the visionaries behind the Michael Jordan partnership and celebrating Ben Affleck’s film; and “Rustin” for the Gotham Cultural Icon & Creator Tribute for Social Justice, honoring Bayard Rustin, activist and organizer of the 1968 March on Washington and recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, while also featuring the spectacular performance of director George C. Wolfe in introducing Rustin’s worthy story to life.

Nominees are selected by committees of film and television critics, journalists, festival programmers and film curators. Separate juries made up of writers, directors, actors, producers, editors and others directly involved in the production of films will determine the final Gotham Award winners.

The Gotham Awards “Celebrate and empower independent film and media creators by providing career-building resources, access to industry influencers, and pathways to greater recognition.” The organization, led by executive director and award-winning producer Jeffrey Sharp, fosters a vibrant and sustainable community of independent storytellers through its year-round programs including Gotham Week, Gotham Labs, Filmmaker Magazine, the Gotham Awards, Gotham EDU, Owning It and Growing Communities.”

The Gotham Awards are the first major awards show of awards season, recognizing outstanding and groundbreaking voices in storytelling. For over 30 years, the Gotham Awards have supported the Gotham Film & Media Institute’s work year-round to recognize film and media creators and provide critical resources to achieve their work.
