The IFP, or the Independent Feature Project, created the Gothams 17 years ago.
And this year, a big congratulations to writer/director Sean Penn! His "Into the Wild" won best feature honors at the 17th Gotham Awards.
Michael Moore's "Sicko" took home the best documentary prize!
"Talk to Me" and "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead" tied for the ensemble cast award.
Ellen Page, my current fave from "Juno," won for breakthrough actor from the film.
Breakthrough director was given to Craig Zobel for "Great World of Sound."
My favorite category -- Best Film Not Playing at a Theater near You -- went to "Frownland."
Six tributes were given to my inspiration, Roger Ebert, my favorite to win Best Supporting Actor, Javier Bardem, director Mira Nair ("Namesake"), production designer Mark Friedber, IFC Entertainment president Jonathan Sehring, and New York mayor Michael Bloomberg.
