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.

2011 Boston Society Of Film Critics Award Winners

But check out the love for Margaret! Unfortunately there was only one screening of the film and lots of the voters missed out on it. Hopefully this will change come January?
