The IFP already announced earlier this year that Penélope Cruz would be receiving a tribute at this year’s Gotham Independent Film Awards, and now the rest of the nominees have been announced.


Topping the list with four noms is little-known Ballast, while Rachel Getting Married, Synecdoche, New York and Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona have all received two nominations.


Penélope and her Vicky Cristina Barcelona castmates, Javier Bardem, Rebecca Hall and Scarlett Johansson will be going up against Anne Hathaway and Rosemarie DeWitt in Rachel Getting Married – both are nominated for Best Ensemble Performance.


Hopefully Michelle Williams will be crossing her fingers for new beau Spike Jonze, their film Synecdoche, New York, which he produced, is up for both Best Feature and Best Ensemble Performance.
