2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards – Winners

By this late stage we should all be completely used to The Artist sweeping. But at the Spirit Awards?! SERIOUSLY?! I have to say I’m more than a little shocked. I was so desperate to see Michael Shannon finally get what he thoroughly deserved last night, but Dujardin snatched it away. Again. And don’t even get me started on the Academy leaving him out….

On a far more positive note, 50/50 gave Will Reiser a long overdue triumph, Woodley’s win makes me extremely happy and it’s refreshing not to see a Streep win in sight, even if it would have been nice to see more love for Sean Durkin’s debut.
