The Gotham Awards were officially handed out last night in Los Angeles and the first major awards show of the year got everyone’s juices flowing for Oscar season. From this point forward, there are a slew of awards ceremonies that will honor the year’s best films but Monday night at the Gotham Awards was all about the best Indie films that 2013 had to offer.
An award that mostly every moviegoers should pay attention to was the Breakthrough Actor Award which was handed out to an actor that is on a lot of radars moving forward. Michael B. Jordan was a virtual unknown before starring in Fruitvale Station and now he’s being mentioned in everything from Rocky VII to Star Wars Episode VII and Fantastic Four.
- Dane DeHaan, Kill Your Darlings
- Michael B. Jordan, Fruitvale Station
- Kathryn Hahn, Afternoon Delight
- Lupita Nyong’o, 12 Years A Slave

But a prideful moment for Jordan came when the Gotham Awards named him the nest breakthrough actor of the year and he beat out stiff competition. But while all the names are worth watching, especially Dane DeHaan and Robin Weigert, Jordan has clearly b sen the hottest new name on the scene and we can expect to see a lot more of him moving forward as he shoots his way up the A-List in Hollywood.
