The 21st annual Gotham Independent Awards went down last Monday, kicking off the 2011 award season. Best Feature was a tie between Beginners, that movie about getting old starring Captain Von Trapp and a dog, and The Tree of Life: a mash-up between Jurassic Park and All In The Family.
Best Ensemble was awarded to Beginners, (that dog just don’t quit!), and Breakthrough Actor was awarded to a much deserving Felicity Jones for Like Crazy.
Major snubs of the evening included The Descendants, which was edged out for three awards. No worries, Clooney. You’ll probably get the last laugh at the Oscars.
