Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson to host Gotham Awards

It’s official! Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson will co-host the Gotham Independent Film Awards.  This year’s show will be extra special as the Gotham Awards will also be celebrating its 20th Anniversary. In a joint press release sent out earlier today, both Clarkson and Tucci had the following to say about their hosting duties:

“We were delighted to hear that Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman passed on hosting the Gotham Awards this year,” said Tucci and Clarkson in a press release. “It encouraged the two of us to launch a massive Twitter and Facebook campaign to get the hosting gig. As two actors who love and respect each other’s work, and happen to be incredibly good friends too, what could be more fun than hosting the Gotham Awards on their 20th Anniversary. We took the job with the understanding that every time either of us says the word “independent,” everyone at home watching or attending the awards themselves must take a shot. Here’s to a fun evening for all.”

The ceremony takes place on Nov. 29 in New York City.  For more info on where to watch and who’s nominated, click here.
