The Independent Spirit Awards...

...just watched them (in an hour and ten minutes thanks to TiVo again)

I'm so happy that this particular awards show has separate categories for debut performance, films under $500,000, first screenplay and first-time directors, 'cause it allowed more people to share the wealth.

Also, I saw only one of the Oscar winning performances (Charlize Theron) and the same holds true here for the big four performances (however, Bill Murray's exceptance speech was hilarious and I have a date to see the DVD tomorrow with R.J.).

However, I have seen the winning debut performance by Nikki Reed in Thirteen and I did see the movie that deservedly one both first screenplay and film under $500,000 (and the producer award) for "Station Agent" which was a lovely film. It was also nice to see Patty Jenkins honored for her first time directing of "Monster"...great film, hard to watch, but worth it!

It's just a shame that "American Splendor" didn't get well, that seems kind of appropriate for the way things go for Harvey Pekar.
