Oscar Who? Don’t Miss the Spirit Awards This Saturday (Feb. 23rd)


Did you know that there are two major film award shows happening this weekend? Before you head out to your Oscars party on Sunday, why not check out the Spirit Awards on Saturday? The ceremony, hosted by SNL favorite Andy Samberg, will air on IFC at 10pm EST. No livestream unfortunately. You can see the full list of independent films being honored HERE.

I’ll be rooting for four-time nominee, “Middle of Nowhere”. The film blew me away at Sundance last year and I’m nearly finished reading the equally powerful script. Best of luck to Director Ava DuVernay  (John Cassavetes Award) and cast members Emayatzy Corinealdi (Best Female Lead), David Oyelowo (Best Supporting Male) and Lorraine Toussaint (Best Supporting Female)!

Only members of Film Independent vote for this particular award, so if you want to make your voice heard (and attend special screenings), join today.

Which films would you like to see recognized on Saturday?
