Gotham Independent Film Awards Nominations 2014

The nominations for the 24th annual Gotham Independent Film Awards were announced earlier today thus kicking off the awards season officially. October and November are relatively quieter months as far as awards goes while December turns into a headache with critics announcing their winners from all directions.

The highly acclaimed Boyhood and Birdman along with Under the Skin, The Grand Budapest Hotel and Love Is Strange got nominated for best picture. I am specially happy for the latter three films which should get more attention then what you and I expect them to latter on this year. In the acting nominees we have Ethan Hawke, Michael Keaton, Julianne Moore, Patricia Arquette and more. Another nominee I am so delightful to spot is Mia Wasikowska for "Tracks". The jury will also award a special ensemble prize to the three male stars from "Foxcatcher".
