Oldman and Theron to be honoured at Gotham Film Awards

Gary Oldman and Charlize Theron are to receive top honours at the 21st annual Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York in November.

The Hollywood stars will be joined by director David Cronenberg and movie boss Tom Rothman to accept Career Tribute Awards at the event, which traditionally launches the film awards season.

A spokesperson says, “We are truly honoured to pay tribute to four cinematic film luminaries, all of whom have greatly contributed to independent film, and have steadfastly supported the film community in their own individual and unique ways.”

Last year, the accolades were handed out to Robert Duvall, Hilary Swank and filmmakers Darren Aronofsky and James Schamus.

The Gotham Independent Film Awards will take place on 28 November at Cipriani Wall Street in Manhattan.
