Last night the production glue team was pleased to collaborate with the IndependentFeatures Project (IFP) and Empire Entertainment in the production of the 18th Annual Gotham Awards at the Cipriani Ballroom on Wall Street.
The event was hosted by Aasif Mandvi and includedperformancesby Terrance Howard and Tributes to Melvin Van Peebles, Sheila Nevins, Gus Van Sant, and Penelope Cruz. You can find a complete listing of the award winners at the event please visit the Gotham Awards website athttp://gotham.ifp.org/ .
As is typically the case with movie award shows the red carpet was alive with movie stars. Celebrities in attendance included Penelope Cruz, Sir Ben Kingsley, Sean Penn, Mickey Rourke, Marisa Tomei, Ethan Hawke, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, and countless others.
The event went as planned and was a great success, so much so that New York magazine even felt the need to mention it in their article about the event. In their words, “If last night’s Gotham Awards ceremony at Cipriani were any indication, the upcoming spate of year-end prize-giving will be a series of smooth, well-oiled affairs. With machinelike precision — are we sure these are independent filmmakers? — the unofficial kickoff to the 2008 movie-awards season began on time, ended on time, and pretty much went without a hitch.”
