After a lot of anticipation, the Gotham Awards kicked off the award season with a ceremony in New York on Monday night. Anatomy of a Fall and Beef won two awards each by the end of the night, while Past Lives emerged as the winner of the coveted best feature award.

The list of contenders for best feature also included Passages, Reality, Showing Up, and A Thousand and One, but none of them could stand their ground to Past Lives. Celine Song’s drama collected this award but failed to repeat its success in any of the other categories.

Anatomy of a Fall was the only film to end the night with two wins, including best screenplay for Justine Triet and Arthur Harari. It also defeated the likes of All of Us Strangers and Poor Things to be named the best international feature at this year’s Gotham Awards.

This year’s ceremony also included three television categories and Netflix’s mini-series Beef dominated this field. It won awards for breakthrough series under 40 minutes and outstanding performance in a new series (Ali Wong), while A Small Light collected the award for the breakthrough series over 40 minutes.

The 2023 Gotham Awards were held at the Cipriani Wall Street in New York City on November 27.
