    So, who’s winning the Independent Spirit Award? Carol? Spotlight? Tangerine?

    24 hours until ceremony begins.

    Spotlight will win, even though I personally voted for Beasts of No Nation.

    If Jason Segel wins I’ll be ecstatic, but if he gets beaten by Abraham Attah, I wouldn’t be too upset (they are my 2 favourite performances of the year). Hoping for Beasts of No Nation for Best Feature, Paul Dano for Supporting Actor, and The End of the Tour for Screenplay. Not fussed about the rest. I’m predicting Spotlight for Feature, Haynes, Segel, Larson, Elba, Nixon, Anomalisa for Screenplay, Diary of a Teenage Girl for First Feature, Room for 1st Screenplay, Spotlight for Editing.

    I’m curious to see what will win best picture. I know a lot of people are predicting Spotlight to win and there are a lot of factors in its favor. Spotlight is the best picture contender in the category and is directed by a filmmaker that is very well respected in the film industry. 

    The only reason I am apprehensive about predicting it is that looking through the best picture winners at the Indie Spirits the winner is always distributed by a major company (mostly Fox Searchlight and Weinstein). Even last year Birdman beat Boyhood. No matter what happened at the Oscars I was expecting Boyhood to win because it evoked the essence of the indie spirit more than any other major contender in recent years.

    Out of the five nominees Carol is released by The Weinstein Company and Anomolisa is distributed by Paramount. I’m going out on a limb and predicting Carol to win.

    I’m on the same ‘limb’. My hunch is that Carol wins the most from this group. Perhaps even BP.

    But Spotlight is my personal choice and across the board.

    The big question I have is if McCarthy actually wins best director. I’m currently on Haynes but Carol is a flop. Will probably change.

    Just want to point out that two of the nominees (‘The End of the Tour’ and ‘James White’) will be going to direct to DVD in the UK. Are they worth the purchase?

    Yes. Get them.

    James White DEFINTELY IS!!! I voted for it for Best First Feature and for Cynthia Nixon as Best Supporting Actress. The End of the Tour is worth renting if they have Redbox in the UK, or just check it out on Netflix, I think it’s maybe worth seeing as a rental, but not worth actually buying.

    I had Mya predicted for the past couple months out of SPITE because I hated Anomalisa so damn much….. Until last night when I decided to get real, and changed to the one everyone was talking about, Jennifer Jason Leigh. #LastMinuteChangesSuck
