Additionally, the Breakthrough Director Award has been renamed in honor of late distribution executive Bingham Ray.

The Gothams give early critical recognition for stand-out independent films and their writers, producers, director and actors. Past winners include "Moonrise Kingdom," "Beasts of the Southern Wild," "Beginners," "The Tree of Life," "Winter's Bone" and "The Hurt Locker," all of which went on to receive Oscar nominations. (Our coverage of last year's winners is here.)
