Actress Emmy Rossum attended The Independent Filmmaker Project’s 25th Annual IFP Gotham Independent Film Awards at Cipriani Wall Street.
A Special Jury Award was presented by the actress to eight actors from the cast of Spotlight for their ensemble work in the film, “in which every performance, in every role, of every size, is beautifully realized.” She looked chic in a Simone Rocha dress. She was also supporting her fiance Sam Esmail, who created the USA show “Mr. Robot.” They won the Gotham Award for best series.
Read what she told reporters on the red carpet below:
Q: Is there any great movie recently that you’ve loved?
A: I loved Spotlight even though it was about a scandal it was really about the journalism and the process of journalism which I think is so fascinating. I just thought it was so beautifully shot, simply told. And the acting down to the people who only had a few lines was so spot on. I was so impressed.
Q: And you’re on an amazing show. Are there any TV shows you’re watching right now and what do you like about them?
A: We love Narcos, we love Transparent. I watch Mr. Robot of course. That’s it right now.
Q: What’s so great about those shows?
A: The story telling, the camera work, the color palette and the music. Everything that they do. The little specifics that take it from good to really great.
Q: Is there a book right now you’re reading?
A: I just read The Good Girl and I really loved it. Kind of reminiscent of those female driven thrillers, Gone Girl, Girl on The Train. I liked it a lot. I liked all of the characters not just the central girl.
Q: One song that you are loving right now?
A: Not Adele, because everyone will say that. We’ve been listening to a lot of Phil Collins I’m not sure why but we’re listening to “One More Night” a lot this week.
The evening was presented by euphoria Calvin Klein, the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward Office of Film, Music and Entertainment, FIJI Water, Maestro Dobel Tequila and Line 39 Wines.
