The 25th IFP Gotham Award Nominations

I love when the Gothams role around, it means we are inching every so closer to the flood gate of precursor awards for the upcoming Oscar season. This year, as always, the Gotham folks pick some bold choices, always snub some that will easily pick up steam later, and confirm early Oscar contenders. It should come as no surprise then that Carol and Spotlight led the way today. Room also got some love, but no Best Picture nod. There are also some boosts for smaller films like Diary of a Teenage Girl, Tangerine, While We're Young, Love & Mercy, and some nice boosts for smaller performances hoping to breakthrough this season like Blythe Danner, Bel Powley, Lily Tomlin, and Michael Shannon.
