Two men with a female spirit

The Film Independent Spirit Awards honour the independent filmmakers – the not so extravagantly budgeted films of Hollywood - and on December 11 the nominees for the 2013 Sprit Awards were announced.

Instead of a gala black tie/evening gown event, the Spirit Awards presents the winners trophies in an afternoon event along the beach in Santa Monica. The 2013 Spirit Awards will be presented on February 23 – one day before the Film Academy presents the Oscars.

Comedic actor Andy Samberg will host the 28th annual Spirit Awards. The Emmy Award winning Samberg last hosted an awards show in 2009 when he was host of the MTV Movie Awards. Samberg has been a part of the hit show “Saturday Night Live” for the past seven years.
