Hurray, Yesterday (March 4, 2018) was an unusual gala night with Oscars as the night before yesterday was influenced by Independent Spirit Award. Both of these ceremonies came out to predict the Winner of the Best Film Category – both Spotlight and Moonlight won the ISA’s top honour. Top honours at this year’s ceremony are bagged by Get Out and Jordan Peele for Best Director. Peele pulls out a big win tonight. At the very least, the Oscars don’t have Nick Kroll and John Mulaney introducing the ceremony, which easily puts the flashy spectacle of the Academy Awards far below the Independent Spirit Awards in terms of enjoyment.

Certainly, though Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney once again won the Best Supporting Actor and Actress prizes, keeping other awards withstand anticipation. Timothee Chalamet grabbed home Best Male Lead for his work in Call Me By Your Name. Frances McDormand nabbed another trophy for her fantastic work in the otherwise virulent Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, while The Big Sick and Lady Bird nabbed the major screenwriting awards. Most memorably, the Robert Altman Award was given to Dee Rees, her casting directors, and her cast for Mudbound. All of this and an uproarious Andy Samberg makes it a bit hard to argue against the fact that in its 33rd year, the Independent Spirit Awards were still the most down-to-earth and genuinely entertaining of the televised award shows.
