If you love the Oscars, but wish independent films were better represented, check out the Film Independent Spirit Awards tonight that celebrate the best little movies that could. I look forward to them more than the Oscars–you can discover some great little gems that may have been overlooked.
The vibe is casual (the ceremony is near the beach in CA), so you’re more likely to see sandals on the red carpet than strappy heels. Sarah Silverman hosted last year, which was as hysterical as you can imagine, and Rainn Wilson (Dwight from “The Office”) hosts this year.
The nominees are here.
The show airs tonight on IFC at 5 p.m. or on AMC at 10 p.m., both Eastern.
