In busy spells -- which in the Broadway arena typically include the two weeks before Thanksgiving and the month before the various award deadlines in the spring -- it is not uncommon for critics and award nominators to find themselves at five or six a week. Eighteen in 16, though, is overdoing it.

The Gotham Independent Film Awards are nothing if not quirky and unpredictable. In this 23rd iteration -- which took place Monday at Cipriani Wall Street -- 12 Years a Slave went into the show with more noms than any other film -- and got zip.

10 Nice Things About The Most Rotten Movie Of The Summer

Mike Ryan | Posted 10.30.2013 | Entertainment

Getaway, remarkably, is holding on to a one percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes as I write this sentence. Which firmly plants it has the worst reviewed movie of the summer and, I can only assume, assures that Robert Luketic is going to have a hell of a Labor Day weekend celebration party.
