Indie Awards Slam Hollywood

The 28th Annual Film Independent Spirit Awards, an irreverent precursor to the Oscars, delivered its usual “eff you” to Hollywood with roaring delight. Host Andy Samberg began the daytime lunch, set under an enormous tent on Santa Monica Beach, by literally shouting to Hollywood: “Fuck you.” “This is our Oscars, and even if we were invited, which I was not, we will not be going,” Samberg quipped. The Perks of Being a Wallflower was awarded First Feature, Jennifer Lawrence crowned Best Female Lead in Silver Linings Playbook, and John Hawkes given Best Male Lead in The Sessions.
