Gotham Juror

Natalie was on the jury of the Gotham Independent Film Awards, along with Nicole Kidman, Jodie Foster, Anne Carey and Lee Percy. Natalie is no stranger to the awards, having appeared in 2009 and 2010

The jury handed down an unprecedented decision, a tie for Best Feature. It went to Tree Of Life and Beginners, and the decision was left for Natalie to justify.

The decision, explained juror Natalie Portman in a taped message, was made because they could not choose between the two dramatically different films without feeling as if they were shortchanging one of them.
