2021 Film Independent Spirit Awards Winners – Deadline

The 36th Annual Film Independent Spirit Awards will take place on Thursday evening, with the last major awards show before the Oscars taking a different look for its virtual edition broadcast live on IFC and AMC + and hosted by SNLby Melissa VillaseƱor. The branded, indie-focused awards show was forced by the pandemic to move into a virtual ceremony from its usual location on Santa Monica Beach and its traditional pre-Oscar date.

This year, the Spirits present trophies for the best independent film of the year, including that of the best feature film, where the nominees include the main name-getter Never Rarely Sometimes Always, Oscar nominees for best film Nomadland and Minari, Ma Rainey’s black background and First cow. By standard, only movies made for a budget of $ 22.5 million or less are eligible, which means we won’t see other Oscar Best Pic hopefuls tonight as The Chicago 7 trial or Mank. Still, Netflix leads all outlets with 16 names to come.
