After winning the Grand Prize for Best Picture at Sundance earlier this year, "Winter's Bone" received almost universal critical acclaim and now leads the Gotham Awards with three nominations--Best Feature, Best Ensemble Performance and Breakthrough Actor for star Jennifer Lawrence.

This is particularly interesting as the Oscar race heats up because last year's Gotham winner, "The Hurt Locker" went on to win six Academy Awards including Best Picture. Count "Winter's Bone" as the early Oscar dark horse and check out the trailer.
