New York, NY (May 14, 2024) – The Gotham Film & Media Institute announced today the nominations in seven competitive award categories for the inaugural Gotham TV Awards, recognizing a range of series, including Baby Reindeer, Ripley, The Curse, Shōgun, Bodkin, Mr. & Mrs. Smith and Black Twitter: A People’s History as well as performances from Emma Stone and Nathan Fielder in The Curse, Andrew Scott in Ripley, Kristen Wiig in Palm Royale, Richard Gadd in Baby Reindeer, and Lily Gladstone in Under The Bridge, among others.

“In a historic moment for The Gotham, we’re thrilled to recognize an extraordinary collection of TV series and the brilliant creators responsible for bringing them to the screen,” said Jeffrey Sharp, The Gotham’s Executive Director. “As an organization dedicated to celebrating and nurturing independent media, we know the inaugural 2024 Gotham TV Awards will honor many truly deserving creatives while widening our reach and expanding our impact. We are enormously proud to celebrate the remarkable talent represented in today’s nominations.” 

For the past decade, the 33-year old Gotham Awards has honored excellence in television in three Gotham Awards categories – Breakthrough Series (Over 40 minutes), Breakthrough Series (Under 40 minutes), and Outstanding Performance in a New Series – and celebrated a diverse array of TV creators with Gotham Tributes, including tributes to creators such as Steve McQueen, Ava DuVernay, and Ryan Murphy. Additionally, The Gotham Film & Media Institute has supported numerous emerging TV creators through its year-round programming. Moving forward, all television awards will be given out at the Gotham TV Awards. The 2024 Gotham TV Awards Ceremony will be held live and in person at 7PM on Tuesday, June 4, 2024 at Cipriani 25 in New York City.

The Breakthrough Comedy, Drama, Limited and Nonfiction Series Awards will honor exceptionally realized new fiction and nonfiction series that expand the possibilities of creativity in serialized content. Outstanding Performance Awards will honor outstanding performances in the three Breakthrough fiction series categories (Comedy, Drama and Limited Series). Nominees were selected by committees of film and television critics, journalists, festival programmers, and film curators. Separate juries of writers, directors, actors, producers, editors, and others directly involved in making television will determine the final Gotham TV Award recipients.
