Gotham IFA: The Lost Daughter: Best Film and Screenplay.

Dakota Johnson

The East coast equivalent of the Independent Spirit Awards, The Gotham Awards are a little more mainstream, a little more accessible and definitely more satisfying. The awards and nominations make sense. Unlike their West Coast cousins, they are not always desperately straining for credibility. Their nominations kick of the award season and the ceremony takes place in New York shortly afterwards.
