Last night the winners for the 32nd Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards were handed out and I’m happy to start your Tuesday morning with this information if you are a follower of any kind of independent film. I have to admit that I stick to my main big screen Marvel Studios and Warner Brothers stuff for the most part and only get to the theater for those types of releases and I should look more into them based on my overall love of movies on the whole. Stuff for the future right? I’ve left the nominations listed alongside the winners and as you will notice a number of special awards were also given out. Enjoy.

As a long time fan of the “Toy Story” original film and its sequels and yes the subsequent toy lines I have to say that I am very excited about the opening of the brand-new Disney/Pixar film “Lightyear” which takes us back in time to the origins of the man who eventually inspired a toy. The film opens today and we’ve already shared the Teaser Trailer and the Official Trailer in other narratives which you can peruse by clicking the hyperlinked text.
