The Independent Spirit Awards were handed out last night and according to Film.com "Silver Linings Playbook" dominated the ceremony, as the Oscar-nominated critical favorite took home four awards, including Best Feature, Best Female Lead for Jennifer Lawrence, and Best Director and Best Screenplay for David O. Russell.
In fact, the only major award it was nominated for and failed to win was Best Male Lead, which went to John Hawkes for "The Sessions." That film also landed Helen Hunt the Best Supporting Female award, while Best Supporting Male went to Matthew McConaughey for "Magic Mike."
