In a year where the nominees at the Gotham Independent Film Awards looked less “independent” than in previous years, the winners definitely kept the group’s mission alive. Debra Granik’s Winter’s Bone took home the top prize for Best Feature, beating out Black Swan, Blue Valentine, The Kids Are All Right, and Let Me In. The cast of indie stars in Winter’s Bone also managed to take the top prize for Best Ensemble, beating out several packed casts of well-established stars including The Kids Are All Right, Life During Wartime, Please Give and Tiny Furniture.

In the documentary race the well-loved film The Oath gets some consolation after being snubbed from the Oscar short list for Best Documentary Feature. Also Davis Guggenheim took home the Festival Genius Award for his documentary Waiting for “Superman”.
