The 2018 Gotham Independent Film Awards were awarded Monday night in New York. It was a night of big surprises, with Chloe Zhao’s The Rider taking home the top prize, besting Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Favourite, Paul Schrader’s First Reformed, and Barry Jenkins’ If Beale Street Could Talk for Best Feature. (Marvel fans should be excited – Zhao has been tapped to direct The Eternals.)

Ethan Hawke took home the Best Actor trophy for First Reformed, while Toni Collette took the best actress honor with horror film Hereditary. Capping off a stellar evening for boutique distributor A24, director Bo Burnham and star Elise Fisher were also winners, and Schrader won for best screenplay. The full list of winners are below.
