The 2023 Gotham Awards, marking the start of the awards season, have just announced their list of nominees.

The nominees were announced by Gotham Film & Media Institute executive director Jeffrey Sharp and deputy director Kia Brooks.

Writer-director Andrew Haigh’s critically acclaimed romantic drama “All of Us Strangers” from Searchlight led with four nominations at the Gotham Awards, including a nod for Best International Feature. The Gotham Awards are touted as the first major awards show of the season.

“We are proud to announce this year’s Gotham Award nominees and look forward to celebrating these amazing storytellers in a few weeks,” Sharp said during the broadcast. “The Gotham Awards in many ways reflects the industry and community we serve. Seen by this year’s nominees, storytelling knows no boundaries as our industry continues to find new audiences across the globe.”

Along with “All of Us Strangers,” films up for best international feature include the French courtroom drama thriller “Anatomy of a Fall,” the black comedy fantasy film “Poor Things,” the family drama “Tótem” and historical drama film “The Zone of Interest”.

Past winners of the big prize at Gothams included “Spotlight” (2015), “Moonlight” (2016) and “Everything Everywhere All at Once” (2022). All such films eventually won the the Academy Awards’ Best Picture Film in their respective years.
