Actor Oscar Isaac accepts the Best Feature award for the film "Inside Llewyn Davis" at the 23rd Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards at Cipriani's Wall Street on Monday.

'Inside Llewyn Davis' tops Gotham Awards

NEW YORK – The Coen brothers’ folk music tale “Inside Llewyn Davis” has won best film at the 23rd annual Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York.

The win Monday night at a glitzy ceremony was an upset. The slavery epic “12 Years a Slave” is widely considered an Oscar front-runner and had a leading three Gotham nominations, but didn’t take any awards.

Best actor went to Matthew McConaughey for his performance in the HIV drama “Dallas Buyer’s Club.” Brie Larsen took best actress for her performance in the foster care drama “Short Term 12.”

Steve Buscemi presented a posthumous tribute to his “Sopranos” co-star James Gandolfini.

The Gotham awards are presented by the Independent Filmmaker Project, an advocacy group for independent filmmakers. Awards are selected by juries.
