    The Independent Spirit Awards are today, March 3, 2018. Best Film is a tough one to call: Call Me By Your Name has the most nominations (6) and Get Out has 5 but there is also Lady Bird and even The Florida Project to consider. I think we can all safely say that The Rider won’t win. I want Call Me to win but my gut keeps telling me they will go with Get Out. The Indie Spirits can be quirky and march to their own drummer.

    I am also interested to know if Three Billboards win win the Screenplay award despite not being nominated for Best Film and Best Director. My guess is that Get Out will win the award. This group’s nominations came out first, way back in November, before Three Billboards started winning so many awards. So will Three Billboards win in all 3 categories it is nominated in or only get the other two? (I could see Benny Safdie being a surprise winner in Supporting Male but I am predicting Sam Rockwell will win. Frances McDormand feels like a lock for Best Female Lead).

    I found this year’s Indie Spirits very hard to predict.

    Best Feature: Get Out
    Best Director: Sean Baker, The Florida Project
    Best Male Lead: Timothee Chalamet, Call Me By Your Name
    Best Female Lead: Frances McDormand, Three Billboards
    Best Supporting Male: Sam Rockwell, Three Billboards
    Best Supporting Female: Laurie Metcalf, Lady Bird
    Best Screenplay: Jordan Peele, Get Out
    Best First Feature: Columbus
    Best First Screenplay: Kamail Nanjaini and Emily V Gordon, The Big Sick
    Best Cinematography: Call Me By Your Name
    Best Film Editing: Get Out

    I would love to be able to watch it today. Not sure if it will be televised in my area . It sure will be more exciting than the Oscars .

    I REALLY pray I am not underestimating the power of the “CMBYN Mafia” with these predictions. I have no idea what I am doing with these awards more than my Oscar predictions, even though there are less categories.

    Note to myself: Don’t ever feed the trolls. Don’t get involved in others drama. Don’t let myself be swayed by others predictions, trust my gut more often!

    Note to all others: If you don’t happen to like me, ignore me. It is that simple.

    They will stream it live on Facebook. Check Film Independent’s website for the link.

    I think I’m starting to love the Indy Spirits Awards better than the Oscars – more off the cuff and always some nice surprises. Of course, I’m rooting for the “Call Me By Your Name” team, but I also loved “Lady Bird”.

    A great way to start Oscar weekend – and they start at 5 p.m. (east coast time), so I don’t have to stay up to Midnight to see what won best film…

    I think Call Me By Your Name takes Picture and Peele takes Director, but Screenplay is very tough, as I think Lady Bird is a real possibility. Could they give Gerwig a consolation prize after snubbing her in Director? Or is it more likely that Oscar frontrunner Call Me By Your Name wins Screenplay or will they go all out for Get Out? Tough one to call, but I’m going with Lady Bird for no other reason than I think they want to award Greta Gerwig.

    ^Miles, Call Me By Your Name isn’t nominated for Best Screenplay; Beatriz at Dinner, Get Out, Lady Bird, The Lovers and Three Billboards are the nominees

    Oh my mistake, thank you. Then I think maybe Lady Bird takes Screenplay and Get Out takes Director and Picture? Or will there be a clean Get Out sweep?

    ugh! Can’t Laurie Metcalf at least win one televised award? I mean, I’m so confused by Janney’s awards sweep. Who is watching both these films and really thinking that Janney gave the superior performance?

    GREAT FOR ALLISON JANNEY! I’m thrilled those Lady Bird fans didn’t ruin the actual best performance of that category, Allison Janney in “I, Tonya,” from winning her completely deserved Independent Spirit Award. I proudly voted for her and couldn’t be happier to be wrong about my Metcalf prediction. 🙂

    ^^They must, like, REALLY adore her as a person (see: Octavia Spencer’s Oscar speech, for example) and are happy that she has her moment. She has quite great film resume, with 4 Best Picture nominees under her belt, plus some decent roles elsewhere.

    Laurie Metcalf had similar narrative (underrated veteran with her first real shot in prominent role) but when Janney was working with everyone on film, Metcalf was rulling Broadway which is easily her favorite job. Thus, she won a Tony that Janney failed to be nominated for last year. It all shows.
