Kristen Stewart is this year’s Performer Tribute recipient, thanks to her role in “Spencer”.

The annual Gotham Awards are, once again, the first major awards show during Oscar season, thanks to the nominations announcement this morning. Films with a budget exceeding $ 35 million are automatically disqualified from the Gotham Awards review. For this reason, Netflix’s main Oscar contenders, such as “Power of the Dog”, winner of Jane Campion in Venice, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s debut feature “Tick Tick Boom”, “The Harder They Fall” by Jeymes Samuels and “The Harder They Fall” by Adam McKay. Don’t Look Up ”didn’t make the cut.

Ahead of the nominations announcement, the Gotham Awards confirmed that Kristen Stewart will be this year’s Performer Tribute recipient thanks to her performance in “Spencer.” Other winners include Eamonn Bowles (receiving Industry Tribute), the cast of “The Harder They Fall” (receiving Ensemble Tribute) and Campion (receiving Director’s Tribute).

The Gotham Awards don’t always equate to the Oscars, but they do play a big role in uplifting nominees early in the season. Last year’s winner for Best Feature was “Nomadland,” which ended up sweeping the circuit with Best Picture wins at the Golden Globes and the Oscars. Riz Ahmed won the award for best actor on his way to an Oscar nomination in the same category. The 2021 Best Actress award went to Nichole Behari for “Miss Juneteenth,” a critical favorite.

As first revealed in August, the 2021 Gotham Awards are removing gender actor categories in favor of gender-neutral awards for top performance and outstanding supporting performance. This year will mark the first time that the ceremony will honor supporting performances. The Gothams also added an outstanding performance in a New Series category.

Up to 10 nominees are eligible to compete in each actor category. Gotham nominees are chosen by committees of movie critics, industry members, and more. IndieWire’s own editor-in-chief, Film Kate Erbland and chief film critic David Ehrlich were on the nominating committees for the 2021 Gotham Awards.

Jeffrey Sharp, executive director of the Gotham Film & Media Institute, explained the decision to ignore gender in a statement, saying, “The Gotham Awards have been celebrating diverse voices in independent storytelling for 30 years. We are proud to recognize exceptional actor achievements every year and look forward to a new model of performance tribute without gender binary divisions. We are grateful to those who have helped start this conversation in recent years, and we are delighted that the Gotham Awards continue to support artistic excellence in a more inclusive and equitable way.

The 2021 Gotham Awards will take place on Monday, November 29 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. Below is the full list of nominees. Refresh the page for the latest updates in real time.
