Women Rule the Indie Spirit Nominations, But Will Oscars Follow?

Women Rule the Indie Spirit Nominations, But Will Oscars Follow?
The nominations for Film Independent’s 34th Independent Spirit Awards are in. The always-idiosyncratic nominations committees steer toward low-budget indie American movies (there’s supposedly a $20-million budget cap), which explains why ineligible titles include too-expensive “Vice,” Belgian-directed “Beautiful Boy,” French-directed “The Sisters Brothers,” and British movie “Mary Queen of Scots,” among others, and how Alfonso Cuarón’s “Roma” wound up in the stellar international film category which also includes likely Oscar-contenders “Burning”, “The Favourite”, and Palme d’Or winner “Shoplifters”.

Spirit nominations do offer some guidance for other awards shows, from the Screen Actors Guild to the Oscars: back in March, Frances McDormand, Allison Janney, and Sam Rockwell all landed Spirit wins in the blustery white tent in Santa Monica the day before accepting their inevitable Oscars. Original Screenplay Oscar winner Jordan Peele took home the Best Feature Indie Spirit for “Get Out”; before that, the previous four winners

Independent Film Awards Circuit Livens Up Studio-Heavy Oscar Race

  • Variety
With this year’s best picture Oscar race set to feature a number of major studio releases, the independent film awards circuit is making for a lively sidebar affair. As ever, it’s an opportunity for bubble contenders to find their corner of the spotlight ahead of the holiday rush, when voters will hopefully be diligent about viewing their screeners before settling in with ballots in the new year. But this year in particular, the absence of so many expected Academy heavyweights from these proceedings is providing a wide berth that should go a long way toward ensuring events like the Independent Filmmaker Project’s Gotham Awards and Film Independent’s Spirit Awards don’t feel like a rehearsal dinner for the Oscars. (Recent Academy drama suggests that will be a relief for some.)

Let’s start with the Spirits. Film Independent’s 46-member nominating committee revealed its nominations for

Strong showings for “Eighth Grade” and “You Were Never Really Here” highlight the Independent Spirit Award nominations

Moments ago, the Film Independent Spirit Awards announced their nominations for 2018. Essentially the Oscars of indie film, this is a time when certain movies can see their only true moment in the sun. As you’ll see below, the nominees this year represent both some major Academy Award players as well as some tiny titles that will go no further. That’s actually part of the real appeal of the Spirits, in that they place these flicks side by side. This seems like one of those years where the Spirit Award winners won’t cross over too much with Oscar, but that remains to be seen. First up, we can just go over the nominees. The Spirit Awards, nomination wise, were led this year by, in a surprise…We the Animals. Scoring five nominations, that led the field, with Eighth Grade, First Reformed, and You Were Never Really Here next in line with four.

2019 Independent Spirit Awards Nominees, ‘Eighth Grade’ & ‘We the Animals’ Lead
The nominations for the 34th Independent Spirit Awards were announced live this afternoon, setting the stage for the awards season with a decidedly indie bent. Over the last several years, the Indie Spirits have become both a champion of underdog indies and a key indicator in which films and performances could end up with the Oscar.

Some of the year’s biggest titles are, however, not eligible for this year’s Indie Spirits per their rules, including “Vice,” “The Sisters Brothers,” and “Mary Queen of Scots,” while Alfonso Cuarón’s lauded “Roma” only qualifies for Best International Film.

Favorites like “Eighth Grade” and “First Reformed” dominated the big categories, with each film earning four nominations, including Best Feature for both, Best Actress for “Eighth Grade” lead Elsie Fisher, and Best Actor for “First Reformed” star Ethan Hawke. “We the Animals” led the entire field with five total noms.
