“Get Out,” “Florida,” “Call” Top Gotham Noms

The 2017 Gotham Awards nominations were announced this morning, the first of the awards race for the year to be revealed, and “Get Out” came on top with four nominations followed by “Call Me By Your Name” and “The Florida Project” with three nominees each.

All three are up for the ‘Best Picture’ honor along with “Good Time” and “I, Tonya”. The last three Best Picture winners won the Best Feature at the Gotham Awards, but only six of their past fifteen nominees in that category earned a Best Picture Oscar nomination.

There were several notable snubs too with Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water,” Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled” and David Lowery’s “A Ghost Story” not scoring any nominations. Martin McDonagh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” was not eligible because of a foreign producer rule.
