The current Oscar front-runner, "Spotlight," is already racking up some major awards, and we're not even into the heat of awards season.
The film, which is based on the Boston Globe's uncovering of the Catholic priest sexual abuse scandal, was named Best Feature on Monday night at the 25th Gotham Independent Film Awards.
The cast — which includes Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber, John Slattery and Stanley Tucci — also took home the Jury Award for Ensemble Cast.
