‘Past Lives’ Takes Best Feature at Gotham Awards: Full Winners List

“Past Lives” was the big winner at the Gotham Awards on Monday evening, taking home the top prize for best feature. “Anatomy of a Fall” won best international feature and best screenplay — both of the categories it was nominated in. Meanwhile, acting honors were won by Charles Melton for his supporting performance in Todd Haynes’ “May December” and Lily Gladstone for her lead performance in “The Unknown Country.”

“Thank you, Gotham, for this award. It’s such an honor. It really means the world to receive it with my debut set in New York City, a city I live in and love deeply,” writer-director Celine Song began, taking the stage to accept the best feature award. Song thanked her producers at A24, along with her cast and crew. She was joined on stage by two of the film’s stars, Greta Lee and John Magaro.

Director Andrew Haigh’s metaphysical gay romance “All of Us Strangers” was the leader of the Gothams field heading into the ceremony, scoring four nominations across all categories. Celine Song’s “Past Lives” and A.V. Rockwell’s “A Thousand and One” followed with three nominations each. Both dramas were nominated for best feature, along with “Showing Up,” “Passages” and “Reality.” Joining “All of Us Strangers” in best international feature, the nominees were “Anatomy of a Fall,” “Poor Things,” “Tótem” and “The Zone of Interest.”

Although the Gothams are historically known to recognize independent films, the Gotham Film and Media Institute removed its $35 million budget cap requirement this year for potential nominees. Most contenders are still indie or arthouse films, though some bigger productions like “Barbie” have snuck into the race. The Gothams also altered their categories for acting awards to no longer be defined by gender in 2021.
