12 Years a Slave Triumphs at Independent Spirit Awards

Spirit-Awards

 

The Independent Spirit Awards were held tonight. In a near-sweep, 12 Years a Slave won 5 awards. The only races it lost were Lead and Supporting Actor, but of which went to Dallas Buyers Club. No other film won more than a single award.

There’s a good chance many of these winners win find themselves victorious tomorrow night as well. But I would hesitate to look at tonight’s proceedings as any kind of indication. While one or two individual nominees are up for both, the majority of the competition is different between the Spirits and the Oscars.
