Gotham Independent Film Nominees Crown Bernie and Moonrise Kingdom as Major Player
Moonrise Kingdom gets the biggest bump toward being an Oscar nominee for Best Picture this year. Wes Anderson has surely created some great films, and is finally getting even more recognition with this great ensemble comedy. Look for more recognition for award shows to help this film get to the podium.
Bernie is less likely to make a big showing, but the film did well here nonetheless, and proves that this could have legs in the screenplay category.
