Moonlight picked up a record four awards last night at the 26th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards, one of the many presages for the Oscars.
The critically-acclaimed film about a young black man coming to grips with his sexuality won best feature, best screenplay, the Gotham Audience Award, and a special jury award for ensemble performance.
The last two films to win best feature at the Gotham Awards--Birdman and Spotlight--went on to win the best picture Academy Awards, so this, along with Moonlight's six Independent Spirit Award nominations, will only add fuel to the Oscar fire.
But whether Moonlight goes on to win anymore awards, or all the awards, the most important thing is that people see it. And if a few trophies help toward that goal, give it its tens.
