This year's Film Independent Spirit Awards are underway, with Nick Kroll and John Mulaney hosting. For those not familiar with the Spirit Awards, think of them as the low-key, hipster, pretentious little brother of the Oscars.
The Spirit Awards are live now on IFC, can be watched on IFC.com if you have a cable login, on Facebook live (so I guess through mobile?) and YouTube, so you can't really miss it. Links listed at the source.
Call Me by Your Name leads the Spirit Awards nominations with 6, Get Out and Good Time right after with 5. At least this is one televised award Gary Oldman can't win, small blessings. I'll update the post with the winners under a cut so this won't be a never-ending scroll.
