“Winter’s Bone” Leads 2010 Gotham Award Winners

"Winter's Bone" Leads 2010 Gotham Award Winners

Debra Granik’s “Winter’s Bone” led the 20th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards, which were announced tonight at Cipriani Wall Street in Lower Manhattan. Though the film’s star Jennifer Lawrence was snubbed in the breakthrough performance category (one of the night’s biggest surprises), the film ended up winning both Best Feature and Best Ensemble performance.

In addition to the competition, this year’s starry Gotham Awards, hosted by Patricia Clarkson and Stanley Tucci, offered tributes to Darren Aronofsky, Robert Duvall, James Schamus, and Hilary Swank, and welcomed Natalie Portman, Anthony Mackie, Paul Rudd, Julianna Marguiles, Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, Bill Murray and Winona Ryder among its many presenters.
