Gotham Awards Hosted By Stanley Tucci And Patricia Clarkson

Still waiting for the Academy to decide on an Oscar host, but the Gotham Awards have found two hosts for its upcoming fete. Independent film fixtures Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson will host the 20th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards on November 29. Clarkson and Tucci just starred together in the Tucci-directed Blind Date. She’s coming off Cairo Time, which won Best Canadian Feature at the Toronto International Film Festival, Legendary, Easy A and Shutter Island. Tucci is coming off Julie & Julia and The Lovely Bones, the latter of which got him an Oscar nomination for an exceptionally creepy performance.

Presenters so far include Julianna Moore, Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, Barbara Kopple, Anthony Mackie, Leighton Meester, Rosie Perez, Sam Rockwell, John Turturro and Michelle Williams.

  1. Trivia tidbit: Tucci and Clarkson first co-starred in ABC’s (superb) MURDER ONE fifteen years ago.

  2. I respect Patricia Clarkson , but she annoyed me in “Easy A” – she was trying too hard to be funny. Now, the brilliant Stanley Tucci ( he has aged so well) , he can read the yellow pages , and effortlessly make them hilarious, hip, and cool. Stanley can do anything, I am still an enormous fan of “Big Night” – his incredible writing & directing debut. I would love for a wonderful director with a well-written dramedy type of script to hire Tucci & Alec Baldwin to star.

  3. I was at a restaurant in Santa Monica and Clarkson was making fun of another couple’s appearance. She wasn’t particularly nice to the waiter either and was quite the diva. Ever since then, not a fan.
