The 25th Annual Film Independent Spirit Awards were awarded in Los Angeles last night at the LA Live Theater, and Precious swept the ceremony. The drama won precious-movie1Best Feature, Best Director for Lee Daniels, Best Actress for Gabourey Sidibe and Best Supporting Actress for Mo’Nique, and Best Screenplay for Geoffrey Fletcher.

Conspicuously absent was the much hyped film The Hurt Locker, but that’s because it competed at last year’s Indie Spirits where it fared poorly. It wasn’t nominated for best film, director or screenplay, only for two acting spots (Jeremy Renner, Anthony Mackie). Both lost.
