In a nice alternative to Oscar night tomorrow, the Indie Spirits took place this afternoon, as usual in its tent on the beach, this time with Aubrey Plaza hosting. They went with the opposite of Oscar, showering Beale Street with love, as well as Eighth Grade, Won’t You Be My Neighbor? and Can You Ever Forgive Me? Ethan Hawke and Glenn Close won the lead acting awards, while Regina King and Richard E. Grant got the supporting trophies.
