Gotham Awards 2022 Winners List

Multiverse-spanning adventure, Everything and Everything won at the 32nd Annual Gotham Awards for Best Feature Film. It also won best performance for Ke Huy Quan, a former child actor best known for his work on “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,” returning to acting after a nearly 20-year hiatus.

“It’s often in independent films that actors who wouldn’t have had their chance find theirs,” Quan said in a rousing speech. “I’m that actor.”

Other notable winners include Danielle Deadwyler, who won best performance for her performance as a grieving mother in “Until.” Gotham’s acting awards are gender-neutral, meaning that Daederweiler not only competed with the likes of Cate Blanchett in “Tar,” but also beat the likes of Brendan Fraser in “The Whale” and “Sunset.” “Contenders such as Paul Mezcal in”

“Tar” won an award for its screenplay, while Charlotte Wells won a breakthrough directing award for her work on “After Sun,” the semi-autobiographical account of her troubled relationship with her father .

The festivities marked the official start of awards season, with many of the performers and filmmakers expected to vie for major honors in the fall and winter season making their award show debuts. It added a vertigo-like air to the occasion, with guests bouncing around the table, their greetings and chatter threatening to drown out the acceptance speeches taking place on the stage a few feet away.

Held at Cipriani Wall Street in New York, the event included tributes to seasoned Hollywood veterans such as Adam Sandler and Michelle Williams, as well as “Queen” director Gina Prince-Bythewood, Focus Features and cast Special honors for Hulu’s “Fire Island.” Sandler, with his daughters Sadie and Sunny, wrote a speech and read it all in an exaggerated Southern accent.

“While Dad’s with you tonight, we’re doing all the things Dad’s not allowed to do when he’s home, like eating his Yodels or trying on his Spanx, or, dare we say it, in a Ben Stiller movie LOL,” he joked. “The last time Dad caught us giggling while watching the ‘Meet the Parents’ trilogy, he immediately rushed into the room he called the ‘scream room’ we called the ‘shower’ and yelled out the line The words, “Only the Sandman makes people laugh. Fuck all other comedians. ‘”

But the evening’s tribute also took on a darker side. Sidney Poiter, known for his roles in films such as 1967’s “In the Heat of the Night” and 1958’s “The Rebel,” who died earlier this year at the age of 94, was honored with an icon Tribute award. Actor Jonathan Majors presented the award while reading a posthumous note to the acting legend paying homage to his career in fog barriers.

The night also included an important reminder that the pandemic upending the independent film landscape remains stubbornly with us. Steven Spielberg originally intended to give the tribute award to Williams for her work on his new film “The Fabelmans,” but had to opt out at the last minute and go to her co-star Paul Dano instead . The director appears to have contracted COVID.
