The Gotham Awards, the East Coast indie prizes that pair nicely with the West Coast's much-later Spirit Awards, have announced their nominations for the 2022 film year so we're officially off! Todd Field & Cate Blanchett's collaboration TÁR and Charlotte Wells' debut film Aftersun (both fairly new in theaters) most impressed the various juries that the Gothams assign to categories each year. They led the way with four nominations each across the 8 film categories. Other films that have reason to celebrate today include but are not limited to Everything Everywhere All At Once and two films that have not yet opened for moviegoers, the gay military drama The Inspection (Nov 18th) and Sarah Polley's return with Women Talking (Dec 2nd). Finally we've got a double acting nominee this year despite so few categories with Ben Whishaw nominated for both film (Women Talking) and television work (This is Going to Hurt).
The 2022 UK Film Critics Association nominations have been announced in seven categories where The Banshees of Inisherin and Everything Everywhere All At Once lead with six, followed by Aftersun with five. 781b155fdc
