Awards season has officially kicked of, with the Gotham Awards bringing film fans the first hints at what might be nominated for Oscars in 2024.

The Gotham Awards, held in Los Angeles, is the first film event on the awards calendar, with many victors named during the ceremony going on to become regular nominees throughout the season. It’s worth noting that the Gothams typically recognise independent films, which is why high-profile films including Killers of the Flower Moon and Oppenheimer were absent from the nominations list.

However, many of those who have won Gothams in the past have gone on to secure Oscar nominations.

If the 2023 Gotham Awards were anything to go by, it’s going to be an exciting race for the drama Past Lives, Killers of the Flower Moon star Lily Gladstone and Riverdale alumni Charles Melton, who stars alongside Julianne Moore and Natalie Portman in Todd Haynes’s May December.

Celine Song’s Past Lives, which stars Greta Lee, Teo Yoo and John Magaro, took home Best Feature, while Gladstone won for the little-seen drama The Unknown Country. She is hotly tipped to receive an Oscar nod for her work in Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon.

In the Outstanding Lead Performance, which is no longer defined by gender, Gladstone beat out contenders including Lee, Teyana Taylor (A Thousand and One), Cailee Spaeny (Priscilla), Andrew Scott (All of Us Strangers) and Jeffrey Wright (American Fiction).

Melton won in the Outstanding Supporting Performance category, beating Ryan Gosling (Barbie), Da’Vine Joy Randolph (The Holdovers), Glenn Howerton (BlackBerry) and Sandra Hüller (The Zone of Interest).

The last two winners of Outstanding Supporting Performance at the Gothams – Ke Huy Quan (Everything Everywhere All At Once) and Troy Kotsu (CODA) – ended up winning Best Supporting Actor at the Oscars.

Meanwhile, Justine Triet’s Cannes Palme d’Or winner Anatomy of a Fallwon two awards: Best Screenplay and Best International Feature.

In the latter category, it won over Andrew Haigh’s All of Us Strangers, Yorgos Lanthimos’s Poor Things, Jonathan Glazer’s The Zone of Interest and Lila Avilés’s Tótem.
