“Squid Game” and its star Lee Jung Jae have both been nominated for the 31st annual Gotham Independent Film Awards!
On October 21 local time, the Gotham Awards officially announced this year’s nominees, and the hit series “Squid Game” snagged two nominations.
“Squid Game” has been nominated for Breakthrough Series – Long Format (over 40 minutes), while star Lee Jung Jae is in the running for Outstanding Performance in a New Series.
Notably, the Gotham Awards has eliminated gendered acting awards for the first time this year, meaning that Lee Jung Jae will be facing competition from both male and female actors within the Outstanding Performance in a New Series category. The “Squid Game” star is up against Jennifer Coolidge (“The White Lotus”), Michael Greyeyes (“Rutherford Falls”), Ethan Hawke (“The Good Lord Bird”), Devery Jacobs (“Reservation Dogs”), Thuso Mbedu (“The Underground Railroad”), Jean Smart (“Hacks”), Omar Sy (“Lupin”), Anya Taylor-Joy (“The Queen’s Gambit”), and Anjana Vasan (“We Are Lady Parts”).
The 31st annual Gotham Awards ceremony will be held in New York on November 29. Check out the full list of nominees here!
