Zero nominations. And no one from the film attended the awards. The Hurt Locker, however, did well at the awards and Roger Friedman predicts the Kathryn Bigelow film will be "a stealth Oscar nominee." [Showbiz 411]

I also want to point out that I have read there is a twinge of "Movie of the Week" vibe in this movie. I haven't seen it so I can't comment if that is true or not. But if you compare independent critics views Precious to say, Ballast, which garnered 4 Gotham awards you can see that I don't think the lack of nominations was meant as a total diss. I think there is a legitimate argument that can be made for why Precious was passed over.
