The annual Gotham Awards is, once again, the first prominent awards ceremony out of the gate during Oscar season, thanks to this morning’s nominations announcement. Films with budgets exceeding $35 million are automatically disqualified from Gotham Awards consideration. For this reason, major Oscar contenders from Netflix
, such as Jane Campion
’s Venice winner “Power of the Dog,” Lin-Manuel Miranda
’s feature directorial debut “Tick Tick Boom,” Jeymes Samuels’ “The Harder They Fall
,” and Adam McKay
’s “Don’t Look Up
” did not make the cut.
Prior to the nominations announcement, the Gotham Awards confirmed that Kristen Stewart
would be the recipient of this year’s Performer Tribute thanks to her performance in “Spencer
.” Other honorees include Eamonn Bowles
(who is receiving the Industry Tribute), the cast of “The Harder They Fall
” (receiving the Ensemble Tribute), and Campion (who is receiving the Director’s Tribute).
The Gotham Awards don’t always line up with the Oscars,
