“Moonrise Kingdom” just rang in the awards season in a promising way. The film scored Best Feature Film at The Gotham Independent Film Awards.

“Beasts of the Southern Wild” lost out in the Artist Award category to Jared Leto‘s film “Artifact.” This led Leto himself to say, “I feel like ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’ should be up here.”

There were a couple of films that are expected to do really well this awards season that didn’t have a good showing at the Gotham Awards. In fact, they didn’t win a single award. Paul Thomas Anderson‘s “The Master,” and critical darling “Silver Linings Playbook.” It just goes to show that you can never be certain what will happen in Hollywood.
