Independent Spirit Awards 2013 Winners.


Well Independent Spirit Awards just ended and the big winner of the night was Silver Linings Playbook which won 4 prizes including Best Picture. I hoped to see Beasts of the Southern Wild win but hey, Spirits have apparently became a popularity contest as well. I means Beasts is the real American indie of the year. Anyway, Silver Linings Playbook also won director, actress for Jennifer Lawrence and screenplay prizes. The Sessions won two awards for its male lead and female supporting performances for both John Hawkes and Helen Hunt. The first feature prizes went to The Perks of Being a Wallflower for feature and Safety Not Guaranteed for screenplay.
