Indie Spirit Awards winners Beasts of the Southern Wild Silver Linings Playbook Jennifer Lawrence Oscars movies news entertainment 13579086

The big winner at Saturday's Independent Spirit Awards will be "Beasts of the Southern Wild," which is predicted to prevail with three of its four bids: Best Picture, Best Director (Benh Zeitlin) and Best Cinematography. 

Gold Derby surveyed our experts and editors as well as hundred of users to predict these best in indie filmmaking. (Click here to see a breakdown by category of the winners and potential spoilers.) 

The fourth bid by "Beast" is for Best Actress and breakout star Quvenzhane Wallis could play spoiler to rival Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence ("Silver Linings Playbook"). Of its four other bids, "Silver Linings" is also expected to win Best Screenplay.

The Oscars snubbed both of the expected winners of the supporting acting races -- Matthew McConaughey ("Magic Mike") and Ann Dowd ("Compliance").

Oscar frontrunner "Amour" is tipped to win Foreign-Language Film here first while Oscar contender "How to Survive a Plague" is predicted to take Documentary Feature. 

Best First Feature is forecast to go to "Perks of Being a Wallflower" while "Middle of Nowhere" is expected to take home the John Cassavetes Award.
