Spirit Award Nominees Announced

I'm Not There leads the pack.

The nominations for this year's Spirit Awards are in -- and Todd Haynes might want to clear some room on his mantle.

Variety reports that Haynes' I'm Not There leads the pack with four nominations -- earning nods for best film and director, as well as supporting nods for Cate Blanchett and Marcus Carl Franklin -- and the festival's inaugural Robert Altman Award. Also receiving four nominations apiece are Juno, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, and The Savages, while A Mighty Heart, Rocket Science, and Lust, Caution each earned three.

I'm Not There, The Diving Bell and The Butterfly, Juno, and A Mighty Heart will compete for best feature with Gus Van Sant's Paranoid Park, while Haynes, Van Sant, Tamara Jenkins, Jason Reitman, and Julian Schnabel are the nominees for best director.

The lead actresses honored by the nominating committee are Angelina Jolie, Tang Wei, Parker Posey, Sienna Miller, and Ellen Page; the actor's list consists of Philip Seymour Hoffman, Pedro Castaneda, Don Cheadle, Frank Langella, and Tony Leung.

two things stuck out to me

1. No best pic nom for the Savages
2. Not a single nom of any type for Before the Devil Knows Your Dead

Juno is going to sweep the awards I think.

I see they've rounded up the usual suspects for the Independent Spirit awards. Again. It would be nice to see them expand their horizons and shed light on some truly fringe film makers rather than pulling their nominations from the same talent pool year after year.

No Before the Devil? And I suppose No Country doesn't count because it went wide 2 weeks after limited? At least this points to good things for Juno, which I was sure would be good considering the cast, but it's nice to be reassured with this news. Still, I'm pulling for I'm Not There.

Talk to me was robbed, big time. What about the stellar performances by Taraji Henson and Don Cheadle? what about Emile Hirsch's performance in Into the wild? and Laura Linney in Savages?
