Everything Everywhere All At Once won the top prize at Gotham Awards 2022

Everything Everywhere All At Once won the top prize for best film at the 2022 Gotham Awards.

The film’s directors praised other independent film producers and their audiences for “doing the necessary impossible job” at the 32nd annual ceremony on Monday.

The independent film celebration, held in New York, kicks off awards season and is seen by many as the highlight for many larger events, including the Oscars.

Everything Everywhere All At Once stars Michelle Yeoh, Hong Gia Bao, Tu Hy Vien, Jamie Lee Curtis and Ke Huy Quan, who also received the Gotham Award for best supporting actor.

Accepting the award for best feature film, co-director Daniel Scheinert said: “This film has been celebrated by the Asian American community, by the immigrant community, by people with weird brains, people who are traumatized. overwhelmed or sad.

“This award is for you… your stories are important. You are important, so stay there.

Co-director Daniel Kwan added: “It’s hard to tell (one) origin story (today) and even harder (to tell a) standalone origin story.

“And for an indie original story to really find an audience, to be recognized as just a miracle and so everyone in this room, I think you’re doing the necessary impossible job.”

In his moving speech as he accepted the award for Best Supporting Actor, Quan, who is best known for his role as a child in Indiana Jones, thanked the directors for giving him a “second chance.”

“At this time last year, I was just hoping to get a job… just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, it came,” he said.

“Usually, in indie films where actors who would otherwise have no chance find their chance – I am that actor.

“For the first time in a very long time, I got a second chance.”

Elsewhere, a stellar performance in the lead went to Danielle Deadwyler for her performance in Till, who was unable to accept the award in person.

The American actress edged out homegrown talents, including Thandie Newton, and Irish actors Colin Farrell and Paul Mescal in this category.

But the British talent has received some recognition, with Ben Wishaw being awarded outstanding performance in a new series for his role in the BBC medical comedy This Is Going To Hurt.
