The 30th Gotham Awards took place on Tuesday, January 12 to kick off the award season of the year.

The virtual event made history as the first time that all the films in the Best feature category of the Gotham Awards were directed by women.

During the Gotham awards, five Tribute honour awards were given, including the late Chadwick Boseman (Actor Tribute, Posthumous), Viola Davis (Actress Tribute), Steve McQueen (Director Tribute), Ryan Murphy (Industry Tribute), and the inaugural Ensemble Tribute to the cast of Aaron Sorkin’s “The Trial of the Chicago 7.”

On receiving Chadwick’s award, his wife Simone Boseman said, “It is my honour to receive this award on behalf of my husband. An acknowledgement not only of his profound work but of his impact on this industry and this world. Chad, thank you. I love you. I am so proud of you. Keep shining your light on us.”
