Netflix has given us one of their best new shows of 2023 with Beef and they’re finally getting credit where credit is due. The list of nominees for this year’s Gotham Awards is in, and this black comedy is leading the way after receiving nods in three different categories.
Beef was created for Netflix by Lee Sung Jin and it centers on a struggling contractor Danny Cho (Steven Yeun) and a small business owner Amy Lau (Ali Wong), whose road rage incident escalates into a prolonged feud that alters the course of both of their lives.
Ali Wong and Steven Yeun both received Gotham Awards nominations for their performances in Beef, while the series itself has been nominated in the category breakthrough series – under 40 minutes. It will have to beat tough competition in High School, I’m A Virgo, Swarm, and Rain Dogs to come out victorious in this category.
As for the drama field aka breakthrough series – over 40 minutes, the list of contenders includes Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire, Dead Ringers, The Last of Us, A Small Light, The English, and Telemarketers.
The 2023 Gotham Awards will be held on November 27, and the list of nominees in the film categories is led by romantic dramas All Of Us Strangers and Past Lives.
