On Monday November 28th, Awards Radar was live at The 32nd Annual Gotham Awards, a night full of honors, surprises and laughs. While the winner’s room was buzzing with energy and chatter as the winners made their way in for a few photos and a quick question or two. All the winners can be found here.
We congratulated the winners, took some photos, had some on-mic conversations and off-mic conversations with everyone from the Safdie brothers, Michelle Williams, Lupita Nyong’o, Todd Field, Adam Sandler, Ramy Youssef, Mo Amer and more. The highlight of the night had to be Ke Huy Quan, already a winner that evening for Outstanding Supporting Performance, very politely interrupting our conversation so he could hear the winner of the night-ending Best Feature award, which his film, Everything Everywhere All At One, was nominated. Seconds later, as the film’s win was announced his face lit up as the reality of the situation hit him. Amazing energy to witness that only the joy of a much deserved win can produce.
What do the Gotham Awards wins and honors mean for the Oscar races? Stay tuned to Awards Radar where Joey Magidson will provide his insights to what needles moved after the event. In the meantime, check out our winner’s room photos and some of our interviews. Also be sure to watch Michelle Williams’ touching acceptance of the Performer Tribute and Adam Sandler’s hilarious ramblings during his Film Tribute acceptance. The speech he said his kids wrote brought down the house.
