2011 GOTHAM AWARDS TRIBUTES ANNOUNCED
The IFP has announced that Charlize Theron, David Cronenberg and Gary Oldman will receive career tributes along with earlier announced recipient Tom Rothman, CEO of Fox Filmed Entertainment, at the 21st annual Gotham Independent Film Awards.
Signaling the start of awards season, the Gotham Independent Film Awards honors the year’s top independent films and filmmakers with seven competitive awards: Best Feature, Best Documentary, Breakthrough Director, Breakthrough Actor, Best Ensemble Performance, Best Film Not Playing at a Theater Near You (selected by the editors of Filmmaker) and Audience Award as well as four tributes.
This year’s tributes also happen to be involved in some of the most anticipated films of the fall. Theron stars in Young Adult, the first film teaming director Jason Reitman and screenwriter Diablo Cody since 2007’s Juno; Cronenberg directs A Dangerous Method, which looks at the intense relationship between Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud; and Oldman stars in the Cold War thriller Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.
This year’s nominees will be announced Oct. 20. The Gothams will take place Nov. 28th at Cipriani Wall Street on Nov. 28.
