Spirit Awards: Full winners list in all 22 categories

The 2023 Film Independent Spirit Awards are being handed out Saturday, March 4, from Santa Monica Pier in Santa Monica, CA in a show hosted by comedian Hasan Minhaj. Much as it paced the Oscar nominations, “Everything Everywhere All at Once” leads the way among all film nominees with eight Independent Spirit noms, including Best Feature and honors for director (Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert), lead performance (Michelle Yeoh), supporting performance (Jamie Lee Curtis and Ke Huy Quan) and breakthrough performance (Stephanie Hsu). Todd Field’s “TÁR” earned seven nominations, including director and screenplay (Field), lead performance (Cate Blanchett) and supporting (Nina Hoss). “Aftersun” scored five bids.

Scroll down to see the Indie Spirit Awards winners list live as it happens today. We’ve also included the complete roster of nominees in every category.

Besides “Everything Everywhere” and “TÁR,” the film competing for top feature are “Our Father, the Devil,” “”Bones and All” and “Women Talking.” All but “Our Father” and “Bones” are also up for Oscar Best Picture, making it possible for both Film Independent and the film academy to choose the same best film for the seventh time in 13 years. Both groups chose “The Artist” (2011), “12 Years a Slave” (2013), “Birdman” (2014), “Spotlight” (2015), “Moonlight” (2016) and “Nomadland” (2020).

In the television categories, leading the way for year for top new scripted series are “The Bear,” “Pachinko,” “The Porter,” “Severance” and “Station Eleven.” “Abbott Elementary,” “The Bear,” “Severance” and “Station Eleven” tallied three nominations apiece to lead the way. Notable nominees include Emmy winners Quinta Brunson and Sheryl Lee Ralph from “Abbott” along with SAG Award winner Janelle James. Other nominees from include Melanie Lynskey for “Yellowjackets,” Himesh Patel for “Station Eleven” and “Severance’s” Adam Scott.

Now in its 38th year, the Spirit Awards honor independent voices working outside the major studio system. This year, the sponsoring Film Independent increased the budget limit for qualifying films from $22.5 million to $30 million, enabling “Everything Everywhere All at Once” to count among the indies with its reported $25 million budget. This also marks the Indie Spirits’ first lineup with gender-neutral acting categories. Rather than hand out honors for Best Actor/Actress and Best Supporting Actor/Actress, the categories now include no reference to gender at all – hence, Best Lead Performance and Best Supporting Performance.
