EXCLUSIVE: Career tributes will be awarded to Charlize Theron, director David Cronenberg and Gary Oldman at the 21st Gotham Independent Film Awards on Nov. 28. That trio will join Fox Filmed Entertainment chairman/CEO Tom Rothman, who was previously announced by the awards organizers at the Independent Filmmaker Project. The tributes will be added to the usual seven competitive awards for films, filmmakers and actors.
All three of the honorees have films that are expected to figure in awards season. Theron stars in the Jason Reitman-directed Young Adult from Paramount, Cronenberg directed A Dangerous Method for Sony Pictures Classics, and Oldman is the star of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, the Tomas Alfredson-directed adaptation of the John Le Carre novel for Focus Features. The Gotham Award nominees will be announced Oct. 20. The event will be held at Cipriani Wall Street.
