Amy Adams, Ethan Hawke, Oliver Stone to Receive Tributes at 2016 Gotham Awards

Amy Adams, Ethan Hawke and Oliver Stone will receive 2016 career tributes at the 2016 Gotham Independent Film Awards, the annual ceremony presented by New York’s Independent Filmmaker Project.

At a November gala that is traditionally one of the first awards-season events of the year, Adams and Hawke will receive actress and actor tributes, respectively, while Stone gets the directing honor. The Gothams also hand out an annual industry tribute, with this year’s recipient yet to be announced.

Adams (“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”) has two buzzy fall titles on the way, including Denis Villeneuve scifi tale “Arrival” and Tom Ford’s thriller “Nocturnal Animals,” both of which recently premiered at the Venice Film Festival. She’ll soon head into production for “Sharp Objects,” the HBO series in which she’ll star.

Hawke (“Boyhood,” “Born the Be Blue”), meanwhile, appears in Antoine Fuqua’s upcoming update of “The Magnificent Seven,” as well as two Telluride/Toronto offerings, “In a Valley of Violence” and “Maudie.” His recent credits also include “The Phenom” and “Maggie’s Plan.”

Stone (“Platoon,” “JFK,” “Born on the Fourth of July”) also has a potential awards-season player on the docket with “Snowden,” starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the man who outed the NSA’s illegal surveillance in 2013. He, Adams and Hawke join a list of past Gothan tribute honorees that include Helen Mirren, Todd Haynes, Jeff Skoll and Robert Redford.

The tribute recipients are announced before the nominations for the Gothams’ lineup of competitive awards, including trophies for feature, actress, actor, doc and breakthrough director, among others. Those nominations will go wide Oct. 20, with winners to be announced during the Nov. 28 ceremony at Cirpriani Wall Street in downtown Manhattan.
