Gotham Awards Kick off in New York with Adam Driver and Jennifer Lopez (Updating Live)

Rain, snow and sleet couldn’t stop the Independent Filmmaker Project from handing out its annual Gotham Awards on Monday night in New York City.

Up for best picture this year are “The Farewell,” “Hustlers,” “Marriage Story,” “Uncut Gems” and “Waves.” Willem Dafoe (“The Lighthouse”), Adam Driver (“Marriage Story”), Aldis Hodge (“Clemency”), André Holland (“High Flying Bird”) and Adam Sandler (“Uncut Gems”) are competing for best actor. Awkwafina (“The Farewell”), Elisabeth Moss (“Her Smell”), Mary Kay Place (“Diane”), Florence Pugh (“Midsommar”) and Alfre Woodard (“Clemency”) are up for best actress.

Gotham Awards winners don’t always go on to take home Oscar gold, but a win at the New York event could help build awards-season momentum for an indie.

Laura Dern, Sam Rockwell and Ava DuVernay, as well as FilmNation founder-CEO Glen Basner, are receiving individual tributes during the gala.
