Jordan Peele’s Get Out scored an early awards season victory on Thursday as it landed four nominations from the IFP Gotham Awards, including nods for Best Feature, Best Actor (Daniel Kaluuya), Best Screenplay (Peele), and Bingham Ray Breakthrough Director Award (Peele again).
Peele’s horror thriller debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in January before a theatrical bow the following month. All told, Get Out has earned more than $253 million at the box office and stands as one of the year’s best-reviewed movies.
The best feature category is rounded out by a list of heavy hitters, including Call Me By Your Name (which landed three other nominations, including a breakthrough actor nod for star Timothée Chalamet), The Florida Project (which earned Willem Dafoe a Best Actor nomination and landed three nominations overall, including one for child star Brookylnn Prince), Good Time (which also nabbed a nod for star Robert Pattinson in the Best Actor category), and I, Tonya (for which star Margot Robbie was cited in the Best Actress category).
Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird also grabbed three nods overall, including Best Actress for Saoirse Ronan and a pair of nominations — screenplay and director — for Gerwig.
Other nominees of note: Adam Sandler in the Best Actor category for Noah Baumbach’s The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) and a posthumous nod for Harry Dean Stanton for his work in Lucky.
In addition to the competitive awards, Gotham Award Tributes will be given to actors Nicole Kidman and Dustin Hoffman, director Sofia Coppola, producer Jason Blum, cinematographer Ed Lachman, and a Gotham Humanitarian Tribute to Al Gore. The cast of Mudbound was also singled out with a Special Jury Prize.
