Glee grows at Gotham Awards

Javier Bardem, Ellen Page pick up trophies

The indie film community schlepped to Brooklyn on Tuesday for the 17th annual Gotham Awards.

Kudofest, which in years past has been held in Manhattan, moved to Steiner Studios, a Brooklyn-based soundstage.

Before presenting Javier Bardem with a tribute kudo, Josh Brolin jokingly described the Spanish actor as a “more macho version of Don Juan.”

Ellen Page, who drew the breakthrough nod for “Juno,” admitted that she was obsessive about getting the part. “It was probably one of the only situations where (I was willing) to sleep my way to the top,” she joked. “So when I found out I got the part I was unbelievably excited and that quickly changed into me being scared shitless.”

Craig Zobel took home breakthrough director for “Great World of Sound,” while feature honors went to “Into the Wild” and “Sicko” took the top doc prize.

After the 2½ hour affair, hosted by the Independent Feature Project, came to a close, the indie stars scoured the parking lot trying to distinguish their limos from the rest of the guests’ hired cars.
