Nominees for Gotham Awards unveiled

Sundance alums 'Bone,' 'Superman' get Festival Genius nods

“Winter’s Bone” and “Waiting for Superman” are among the nominees of the Gotham Independent Film Awards’ first Festival Genius kudo.

Nominations for the new award were voted on by some 12,000 filmgoers from the festival circuit, all members of the online community of web-based fest service Festival Genius.

Debra Granik’s drama “Winter’s Bone” and Davis Guggenheim’s docu “Waiting for Superman” are both Sundance alums. Also on the list of nominees are John Gray’s “White Irish Drinkers,” a coming-of-age drama that bowed at Toronto; Doug Dearth’s “9000 Needles,” a doc about a stroke victim exploring alternative medicine; and Will Canon’s SXSW alum “Brotherhood,” about a frat initiation ritual that goes awry.

“Winter’s Bone” is already up for three other Gotham gongs including feature.

Festival Genius noms were announced by Oliver Platt at an event Monday night. Winner of the kudo, along with the other winners of IFP’s Gotham Awards, will be announced during the annual ceremony Nov. 29.
