2023 Independent Spirit Awards: List of winners

The TV awards cast a wider circle, with nods for “The Bear,” “The Rehearsal” and “Abbott Elementary.”

The blue carpet has been rolled out and now we know the winners of the 2023 Independent Spirit Awards. The list of nominees is best for films made under $30 million in 2023 — an increase from the previous budget cap in recognition of ever-increasing production costs.

“Everything Everywhere All at Once” had a pretty clean slate, winning all seven categories in which it was nominated, including Best Picture, and seven of the eight nominees won overall — with Ke Huy Quan and Jamie Lee Curtis competing. another in one of the categories, Supporting Performance, the former won.

Yes, the 38th edition of the awards presented by Film Independent reversed the changes previously accepted by the Gotham Awards: they created gender-neutral performance categories. This means that Cate Blanchett was up against not only Michelle Yeoh (who eventually won), but also Paul Mescal from Aftersun (although, along with Jeremy Pope in The Inspection, she is one of the two people category. ).

In addition to Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress, “Everything Everywhere” also won Best Director (Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert), Best Breakthrough Performance (Stephanie Hsu), Best Screenplay and Best Editing.

Only films that didn’t compete with “Everything Everywhere” won awards: “TÁR” for best cinematography, “Aftersun” for best first film, “Emily the Criminal” for best first screenplay, “Everything Everywhere” beauty and Bloodshed” for best documentary, “Nanny” (or really Nikyatu Jusu) for the Someone to Watch award, “Women Talking” for the previously announced Robert Altman award, “Joyland” for best international film, “I Didn’t ‘t See You” There” for the Truer Than Fiction Award and “The Cathedral” for the John Cassavetes Award.

Quinta Brunson and Ayo Edebiri won TV lead actor and supporting performance awards, respectively. “The Rehearsal” won Best New Non-Scripted or Documentary Series and “The Bear” won Best New Scripted Series.

Another big change concerns the way the Spirit Awards will be watched: the ceremony will be broadcast on YouTube instead of IFC.
