Nominees for the 2023 Independent Spirit Awards are starting to hit the blue carpet. One of the biggest days of the year for independent cinema, the Spirit Awards honor the best films made under $30 million and recognize the best performances in television. And with so many short films in this year’s Oscar nominations — including “Everything Everywhere All At Once” and front-runners “THE LIBRARY” — it’s highly likely that quite a few future Oscar winners will be at today’s ceremony.
The afternoon timing and beach setting usually means that the Independent Spirit Awards is a slightly more casual affair than other big late-season awards shows. Which is probably appropriate, given that the show is designed to celebrate low-budget independent films. But that doesn’t mean the event lacks glamor or star power. The Independent Spirit Awards are the last major awards show before the Oscars, so it’s a great chance to see your favorite stars before they don their Oscar gowns.
