Independent Spirit Noms

Bill Murray, Frances MacDormand, Edward Norton, and
Independent Spirit nominee Bruce Willis in Moonrise Kingdom 

Just to complete the list of film awards and nominations, I added the Independent Spirit Awards nominations which were announced just after Thanksgiving. The winners will be presented the night before the Oscars. Maybe I wasn't paying attention that day, but they didn't get as much press as the Critics Choice, SAG or GG nominations this week. There is some overlap between the indie world and the general-release studio world with Moonrise Kingdom, Silver Linings Playbook, Beasts of the Southern Wild, and The Sessions receiving recognition from both.I haven't heard of a lot of these pictures including Keep the Lights On, The Middle of Nowhere, and End of Watch. Moonrise was one of my favorite pictures of the year and it is kind of weird and wonderful to see Bruce Willis and Matthew MaConaughey nominated alongside of hard-working non-big name people like Ann Dowd, Lorraine Toussaint, and Michael Pena. There's still the BAFTA Awards, the British equivalent of the Oscars.
