How Gotham Awards are unique
The nominees for each category were declared on October 25, 2022, by Angelica Ross and Jeffrey Sharp. The awards specifically honor films with a budget under $35 million. The Gotham Awards are unique from other awards wherein they have eliminated gendered performance categories, including one list of ten performers of all genders instead of the prior two gendered categories with five nominees each.
The Gotham Awards 2022 gave tributes to seasoned Hollywood veterans like Adam Sandler and Michelle Williams, while also giving special distinctions to “The Woman King” director Gina Prince-Bythewood, Focus Features, and the cast of Hulu’s “Fire Island.”
Sidney Poiter, who was recognized with the Icon Tribute award and passed away earlier this year at the age of 94, was well-known for his roles in movies including 1967’s “In the Heat of the Night” and 1958’s “The Defiant Ones.” Jonathan Majors, the star of “The Harder They Fall,” gave the award while delivering a eulogy he had written to the legendary actor after his passing, honoring his career-breaking achievements.
