And you thought the New York Film Critics Circle was the unofficial official kick-off of awards season. On Monday night in New York, the Gotham Independent Film Awards were handed out for the 21st time -- though this edition was slightly more historic than usual. For the first time ever, two films tied in the Best Feature category: Mike Mills's 'Beginners' and Terrence Malick's 'The Tree of Life,' both of which defeated 'The Descendants' for the award. Alexander Payne's presumed Oscar favorite was nominated three times (Feature, Ensemble, Breakthrough Actor), but failed to win one award.
