And Your Sister's Sister won.

Humongous congratulations to Lynn and her award-winning cast, who did the kind of small, beautiful work that I always fear will be overshadowed by things like Jack Black and Shirley MacLaine interacting with actual Texas townfolk in Bernie or movie stars parading acting chops in Silver Linings Playbook. Thank you, Gotham Awards, for proving me wrong.
