The 31st annual Gotham Awards is a key stop in the awards season marathon, especially for lower-budget indies looking for some traction for the Oscars race. However, not every likely Oscar contender found itself up for Gothams, including “The Power of the Dog,” “Tick, Tick… Boom!” and “The Harder They Fall,” as they exceeded the $35 million budget limit for nominees.

For the first time, international documentaries were eligible in the best documentary feature category. Additionally, the new award breakthrough nonfiction series is among category updates for the year, as well as outstanding lead performance, outstanding supporting performance and outstanding performance in a new series, from the television side. Outstanding lead performance, breakthrough performance and outstanding supporting performance were all gender neutral categories, with eight men and 14 women nominated.

As previously announced, Jane Campion was honored with a director’s tribute statue, while Magnolia Pictures chief Eamonn Bowles received the industry tribute honor. The cast of “The Harder They Fall” received the ensemble tribute prize, and Kristen Stewart received this year’s performer tribute for her role as Princess Diana in “Spencer.”
