To which part of calling “The Homesman” a “feminist western” would Tommy Lee Jones, its director, co-writer, co-producer and costar, be more likely to object?

“It’s not very meaningful,” says Jones wearily. “I know what a western is; it’s a movie that’s got horses and big hats in it.”

“And usually just men,” adds costar Hilary Swank.

“The women are usually whores with Technicolor hair and hearts of gold,” scoffs Jones, Swank nodding in assent. “There are also those who stand at the stove in their aprons and wring their hands and bring coffee.”

The Gotham Independent Film Awards will benefit from an unprecendented dosage of star power during its annual dinner at Cipriani Wall Street on Monday.

The celebration of arthouse films has tapped Uma Thurman as its host, according to the show’s backer the Independent Film Project.

The Gothams also unveiled an A-list roster of presenters, including Meryl Streep, Jake Gyllenhaal, Scarlett Johansson, Hilary Swank, Marisa Tomei, Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, Amy Schumer and Catherine Keener.

As awards season continues to get more cutthroat, it’s a sign that the studios now view the Gothams, which started 24 years ago as a low-key (and celebrity-less) affair, as one of the first stops on the campaign trail.

The show added a best actor and actress category last year, which upped the ante and allowed for it to better compete with the more star-studded Independent Spirit Awards, held the day before the Oscars in Santa Monica.

Beyond being famous for her film work—which has earned her two Academy Awards—Hilary Swank has also made a name for herself as a leading advocate for animals. On Thanksgiving night (Fox, 8 to 10 p.m.), she’ll bring her talents and humane passion to a special program celebrating rescue dogs: Fox’s Cause for Paws: An All-Star Dog Special. She is co-producing this groundbreaking show with Michael Levitt, producer of special programming and a leader in dog rescue. Jane Lynch will be the co-host. We recently had the opportunity to talk with Swank about her animal advocacy and this extraordinary television show.

Claudia Kawczynska: What drew you to rescue/shelter dogs?

Hilary Swank: Every year, nearly 8 million animals end up in shelters, of which approximately 4 million never make it out. We want to do the work [on this program] to make people aware of the extent of the problem, because I don’t believe that anyone’s life should be cut short. Up to 25 percent of homeless animals are purebred, if people are looking for a purebred. There are puppies; young, already trained dogs; and senior dogs. If people are made aware, they will know that their four-legged family member is waiting for them at a shelter or rescue organization. So many people want a dog but are either misinformed or simply unaware of these facts. Rescuing a dog shouldn’t be arduous or difficult, and this program will bring to light just how simple the process truly is if they have the right tools.
