Independent Spirit Award Winners

Juno took home best film while the film's breakout star Ellen Page was awarded Best Actress today at the annual Independent Spirit Awards. Nothing was truly surprising about those wins or any other this afternoon, but I did love the constant love shown toward Todd Haynes' masterful I'm Not There. The Diving Bell and the Butterfly also did quite well, making me feel like maybe - just maybe - Julian Schnabel, Ronald Harwood and Janusz Kaminski can pull off a triple upset tomorrow. Just something to think about. Here are the winners, from Awards Daily.
