Gotham Independent Audience Awards
by nashvilleff, Subscriber
IFP East has announced the Gotham Awards nominations, which include some very odd choices – like nominating Melanie Lynskey for Breakthrough Actor, when her breakthrough role was opposite Kate Winslet in the 1994 Peter Jackson classic Heavenly Creatures. But more fun than those are the interactive Gotham Independent Film Audience Awards – for which voting begins today.
Beauty is Embarrassing is the nominee qualified through the Nashville Film Festival (our Narrative winner – The Intouchables – is ineligible because this award is for American films only), but joining Neil Berkeley’s doc (coming back to the Belcourt October 30 through November 1) are 2012 NaFF selections Brooklyn Brothers Beat the Best, Trash Dance and Under African Skies, which was runner-up to Beauty is Embarrassing here in Nashville.
