Hot on the heels of last night's indie-spirited Gotham Awards are today's nominations for Film Independent's 28th annual Independent Spirit Awards; the proverbial Oscars of Indie film.

In years past the Independent Spirit Award nominations have served as an indicator of future Oscar nominees, but we'll have to wait and see if that is the case for 2013, keeping in mind a few of the organization's key eligibility requirements: i.e. a film's budget cannot exceed $20 million and must have been made and distributed in America.

Check out the complete nominations list, announced by Anna Kendrick, Zoe Saldana and Common, after the jump!
