Independent Spirit Awards Nominations Announced

Ryan Gosling Drive Some would say that it’s time for the final countdown but I will say it’s time to get a bit enthusiastic. After all, we’re here to talk about the 27th Annual Independent Spirit Awards, not Oscar night! Still, I like nominations, they usually (and not always) show us what’s best in independent film at this moment, so what can I tell you guys, sit down and enjoy the full list of nominations for Spirit! 50/50 I’m sure you’re not surprised at all. We all know that The Artist made a big-boom so no wonder this movie got five nominations including Best Feature, Best Director, Best Male Lead, Best Cinematography and Best Screenplay. That’s nice, except The Artist isn’t an independent movie(!?). Take Shelter on the other hand reached the same number of nominations, while Drive, 50/50, Beginners and The Descendants all share nominations for probably the most exciting category – Best Feature. Beginners I’m also interested in Best Male Lead category where we have Woody Harrelson nominated for his bad cop role in Rampart and Ryan Gosling for Drive, as well as Demian Bichir, Jean Dujardin and Michael Shannon. Elizabeth Olsen Who should win, Harrelson or Gosling? Hard to decide, but when it comes to Best Female category, I definitely think Elizabeth Olsen is the lucky winner. Anyway, winners will be announced at the Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday, February 25th, 2012 and until then – let the online free bets start! Pick your favorite category and bet with me guys!
