Independent Films and Stars Feel the Love at the Gotham Awards
Independent films and actors were the stars of the Gotham Awards, which were held in NYC today. Brie Larson cemented her status as one to watch when she won the Best Actress award for her role in Short Term 12, beating out Hollywood favourites such as Cate Blanchett and Scarlett Johansson. Matthew McConaughey's work in Dallas Buyers Club was recognised in the Best Actor category; Michael B. Jordan won the Breakthrough Actor award for his work in Fruitvale Station, and the film Inside Llewyn Davis took home the top honour of Best Feature. The event was also attended by some of our favourite women on TV, including Rashida Jones and Amy Poehler from Parks and Recreation, and Zosia Mamet from Girls.
