Nominations for the 2016 IFP Gotham Awards were announced Thursday, a bellwether for indie films with Oscar accolade potential.

"Manchester By The Sea" leads the field with four nominations: Best Feature, Best Actor for Casey Affleck, Breakthrough Actor and Best Screenplay. Barry Jenkins' "Moonlight," starring Trevante Rhodes, earned three nominations. The film's cast will also be awarded a special Gotham Jury Award.

The Gotham Awards will be presented November 28 in New York City -- just two weeks ahead of nomination announcements for the Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Gotham's TV nominees included "Jessica Jones," "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend," "Master of None," and "The Girlfriend Experience."

Hollywood veterans Amy Adams, Ethan Hawke, Arnon Milchan and Oliver Stone will be awarded with Gotham tributes.
