Toh! was live backstage at the 2013 Film Independent Spirit Awards. Host Andy Samberg, who calls the Indie Spirits "the only award ceremony watched by more people at the actual show than on televsion," starts off by noting that he feels like he's among peers: Indie box office numbers are similar to some of Samberg's studio films. He hopes everyone's enjoying their gallon of Jameson at every table, along with the complimentary Jameson mini-bottles, and can't resist a Michael Fassbender dick joke -- yes, those were from 2012, but Fassbender's package is "so long it flopped into 2013." He holds back on nudity jokes about Supporting Actress nominee Helen Hunt, but orders John Hawkes to show him his "winter's bone." These awards are off to a characteristically bawdy and foul-mouthed start. Case in point: "Fuck the Oscars!" Winner -- Best First Screenplay: Derek Connolly, "Safety Not Guaranteed" Connolly, »
