I have no idea, of course, what the definition of an independent movie is, but I like to see them honoured. The award list of the Independent Spirit Awards as the probably most important Indy award is hence impressive, and lacks some of the duller moments we will see at the Oscars: Yet – this year’s Oscar nominations shied away from many of the blockbusters, so most of the films can be found at least on the nominee lists of either champagne-sipping event. There is of course one annoying mistake, which is giving a script award to "Vicky, Christina, Barcelona" instead of the National Lobotomy Award, but maybe they just mixed up the envelopes.

And the winners are:
