Wes Anderson - Moonrise Kingdom Starts its Awards Collection at Gotham Awards

As awards season draws closer and closer, and the biggest names tipped to win big at the main events (the Oscars and the Golden Globes) start being released, it's easy to forget some of the amazing films released earlier in the year. 

Moonrise Kingdom, Wes Anderson's latest example of dysfunctional family dynamic and interesting cinematography, is one such film that most of us had forgotten about. Luckily, neither the Spirit Awards nor Gotham Awards failed to acknowledge and praise the movie, bringing it all back to the forefront of our minds. 

he film itself follows two children running away together, travelling towards a cave that they name 'Moonrise Kingdom'. According to USA Today report that Gotham awarded the Best Feature from the New York based awards, while garnering a nomination in the same category for the Film Independent Spirit Awards in LA. With these early nods of praise, this bolsters the chances of Moonrise Kingdom winning big at the main events early in 2013. As well as best feature, it has also been nominated in four other categories. Wes Anderson has been nominated for Best Director, plus Best Screenplay (to be shared with Roman Coppla), Bruce Willis has been nominated for his role as Best Supporting Male and Robert Yeoman has been tipped for Best Cinematography. 

With these preliminary nominations, we just can't wait for award season to begin!
