The 2023 Gotham Awards are finally here, with a star-studded lineup of honorees and films being recognized at the first major ceremony in this year’s movie awards season.

The black-tie awards show will take place Monday, November 27 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. Bradley Cooper, Ben Affleck, Greta Gerwig, Michael Mann, and “Rustin” director George C. Wolfe are among those being honored with tributes during the evening.

Viewers can watch the show at home beginning 6:00 p.m. ET courtesy of the Gotham Film & Media Institute and Variety on YouTube here. Red carpet arrivals will be followed by the 7:00 p.m. ceremony.

This year, the awards removed the budget cap for eligible films after previously only honoring movies made for $35 million or less. “For the 33rd Annual Gotham Awards, we’re excited to include more voices from around the globe by expanding eligibility for the many brilliant international films and filmmakers who deserve to be in consideration this year,” Jeffrey Sharp, executive director of The Gotham Film & Media Institute, announced in August 2023. “Additionally, with shifting budgets, we’ve decided to eliminate arbitrary budget caps for submission eligibility — first instituted over a decade ago — to broaden our reach in terms of recognition and accessibility to the wider community.”

Twenty feature films, 11 TV series, and 30 performances in 10 award categories are nominated with Gerwig’s “Barbie,” “All of Us Strangers,” “Passages,” and “Past Lives” earning the bulk of the nods. Special tributes to honor Bradley Cooper’s “Maestro” with the Gotham Cultural Icon & Creator Tribute; “Air” with the Gotham Visionary Icon & Creator Tribute honoring the visionaries behind the Michael Jordan partnership and celebrating Affleck’s film; and George C. Wolfe’s “Rustin” for the Gotham Cultural Icon & Creator Tribute for Social Justice, honoring Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient Bayard Rustin, are all slated for the evening.

Best Feature contenders include the HBO film “Reality,” plus “Passages,” “Past Lives,” “Showing Up,” and “A Thousand and One.” Best International Feature nominees include “Poor Things,” “Anatomy of a Fall,” “All of Us Strangers,” “Tótem,” and “The Zone of Interest.” Actors Andrew Scott, Jeffrey Wright, Franz Rogowski, Greta Lee, Cailee Spaeny, Teyana Taylor, and Lily Gladstone are among those nominated in the Outstanding Lead Performance category, which is not separated by gender.
