Last Minute Gotham Award Predictions

Last Minute Gotham Award Predictions

I’m about to quickly get ready to head down to the Gotham Awards for my third annual live-and-increasingly-drunk-from-backstage live blogging of the event (here is last year’s result). I’m also told Winona Ryder will be there, so I need to give as much of my efforts to grooming and primping as possible in hopes to winning her heart and undying affection. Which leaves me with very little time for pre-show analysis. So check back with indieWIRE.com around 730pm EST for the live blogging, and in the meantime I will offer this very quick set of predictions, which should be taken with a large grain of salt considering the Gotham’s history of unpredictable award giving behavior:
