    Ah the Spirits; one of my fave Awards. Hope The Place Beyond the Pines, Mud, and The Way Way Back can make an appearance here, along with the ‘favorites’. Might see James Franco, Inside Llewyn Davis, as well as some others who wont be there for Oscar.

    Rooting for Greta Gerwig for Frances Ha, especially since she was surprisingly snubbed for Damsels in Distress last year.

    Silver Linings winning the Best Film Award last year was such a joke.  I know I know, independent financing and somehow the Weinstein Company continues to fool people since it’s not a studio, but come on?  If they get The Butler in here this year…

    The best part is that if you go to the Spirit Awards website FAQ, it states that they have a hard rule that a film’s budget cannot exceed $20 million, yet the budget for Silver Linings Playbook was widely reported as $21 million.

    Harvey worked his magic.  Come on, what’s $1 million dollars more?  Oh, and he’ll make sure certain sponsors and bigshots keep the Indie Spirits afloat.  Sold!

    It’s great to compare the overall box office numbers of the nominees for Best Film.  Keep The Lights On unlisted. Bernie about $10 million.  Beasts $20 million.  Wow, pretty impressive.  And what film basically sweeps except Bradley?  Yup, the $200+ million baby.  I remember watching the show and the Silver Linings people were acting like they owned the place.  So The Butler’s budget was $30 million?  hmmm…

    Box Office Mojo has Keep the Lights On at a quarter million.

    The Film Independent Board of Directors never actually set a budget
    ceiling for Spirit Award films prior to 2006. The task of setting a
    budget ceiling—of deciding which films to include in our nominations and
    which films to exclude—was given each year to the Spirit Awards
    Nominating Committees. Some years, as in 1995, the committees nominated
    films with budgets as high as $22 million (Bullets Over Broadway).
    Typically, the ceiling has hovered between $16–$18 million. The Board
    of Directors was reluctant to set a hard-and-fast limit in the past,
    but at the request of the Spirit Awards Nominating Committees to give
    the committees more specific direction, the Board fixed the budget
    ceiling at $20 million in 2006.

    Captain Phillips had a $55 million budget and was made by one of the Bix Six studios, so it will not be nominated, Try Again.

    Thanks for that!

    Yeah, I just wish that the awards honored films that fit the initial purpose of the awards and would benefit from the recognition.
