The 2010 Gotham Awards

The 2010 IFP Gotham Independent Film Awards were presented tonight. Winter’s Bone, directed by Debra Granik, received two awards – Best Feature and Best Ensemble. Surprisingly, the Sundance favorite did not sweep the awards. Perhaps even a bigger surprise was how the much-praised The Kids Are All Right did not receive any accolades.

Here is the complete list of winners:

Best Film: Winter’s Bone
Best Documentary: The Oath
Best Ensemble: Winter’s Bone
Best Breakthrough Performance: Ronald Bronstein, Daddy Longlegs
Best Breakthrough: Director Kevin Asch, Holy Rollers
Best Film Not Playing At A Theater Near You: Littlerock
Festival Genius Audience Award: Waiting for “Superman”

With these notable wins, does Winter’s Bone have a shot at being one of the ten Best Picture nominees? As much I hope that it will be nominated, I think Lisa Cholodenko’s The Kids Are All Right will get more Academy love than Winter’s Bone when the Oscar nominees are announced in January.
