It’s hard to believe another awards season is upon us, but time marches on, indie movies get released, and somebody has to recognize the best of the best. So our good friends at The Gotham (formerly IFP) kicked off the annual tradition of giving trophies to great stuff with the 31st Annual GOTHAM AWARDS! The ceremony was held on November 29, 2021, at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City and SAGindie was there to celebrate – along with our lovely SAGindie tablemates Caroline Aaron, Midori Francis, Lily Gladstone, Moira Griffin, Brandon Micheal Hall, Marin Hinkle, and Diana Williams. Check out the list of this year’s winners below.
