The 2021 Gotham Awards were held this evening in New York City. The event was a spirited start to awards season, and it has already firmed up some formidable frontrunners for the rest of the season.

Undoubtedly, the biggest winner of the evening was Maggie Gyllenhaal. Her film The Lost Daughter took home Best Feature—the biggest award of the night. The Lost Daughter also swept three other categories including: Best Screenplay, Outstanding Lead Performer, and the Bingham Ray Breakthrough Director Award.

In addition to Gyllenhaal, Kristen Stewart and Peter Dinklage also received their fair amount of praise during the evening. They each received Gotham’s Performer Tribute. Stewart’s statue was presented to her by Julianne Moore (who reminded the crowd that she’s known Stewart since she was 12 years old) and Dinklage received his from an extremely animated Ethan Hawke (who called Dinklage a “national treasure.”)

Jane Campion also accepted the Director’s Tribute from Mark Ruffalo and Jeymes Samuel presented the cast of his film The Harder They Fall with Gotham’s ensemble tribute. The late Kathleen Collins received the Icon Tribute which was accepted by her daughter Nina Collins, and Eamonn Bowles’ Industry Tribute was presented to him by Alex Gibney.

South Korean mega-hit Squid Game also took home its first award of the season for Breakthrough Series–Long Format (over 40 minutes). The series’ breakout stars Jung Ho-yeon and Lee Jung-jae were both in attendance.
