American Honey, Moonlight lead noms for Independent Spirit Awards – Tribute.ca
The red carpets are ready to roll out and film fans are anxious to learn which pictures will pick up the top prizes. Awards season is approaching.
Andrea Arnold’s road drama and Barry Jenkins’ intimate coming-of-age tale were honored with six nominations each. Kenneth Lonergan‘s drama Manchester by the Sea with Casey Affleck followed closely with five nods, while the Natalie Portman-led Jackie scored four.
Along with Casey and Natalie, who both earned recognition for their work this year, award season veterans — including Annette Bening (20th Century Women), Isabelle Huppert (Elle), Viggo Mortensen (Captain Fantastic) and Ralph Fiennes (A Bigger Splash) — were also nominated for their respective films.
The Independent Spirit Awards will be handed out Saturday, Feb. 25, 2017, the day before the Oscars.
