Back of Natalie, Alec and Ryan Lead the Way at Gotham's Indie Awards It was a celebration of movies and acting in NYC last night at the Gotham Independent Film Awards. Ryan Reynolds hit the red carpet solo looking dapper in his vest while Brooke Shields stood close to Rosie Perez and Alec Baldwin posed with Richard Kind. Alec recently said he would be retiring from acting in a couple of years, but first he's out to promote It's Complicated out this month. He also has a big award show to host this season when he and Steve Martin take on the Oscars together. Natalie Portman showed some skin — get her look here — before being honored during the show just days before her new film, Brothers, hits theaters. The night's big winner was The Hurt Locker while Stanley Tucci was also one of the night's honorees along with Portman. Chris Rock came out to support his documentary Good Hair, though the prize went to Food, Inc. The night was full of laughs as Meryl Streep entertained, and Sam Rockwell made funny faces with Patricia Clarkson who took the podium. Award season is underway as we start to get an idea of what lies in store for the nominations and shows yet to come.

Natalie and Ryan are so beautiful! mommy2one 7 years ryan is so hot, i know this has nothing to do with her movie "brother" but i can not WAIT to see it, i think its going to end up being REALLY REALLY good! cfp 7 years I'm glad The Hurt Locker is getting some of the recognition that it absolutely deserves. It was probably one of the best movies I have ever seen and without a doubt the best movie about the Iraq war that I think we will ever see. ilanac13 7 years natalie looks so serious in this picture - hmmm...i guess it's just the moment since she usually smiles and looks so happy. as for ryan - he's really looking great. i don't usually like scruffy men - but he's really pulling it off nicely.
