The 2010 Independent Spirit Award Winners

Anyone catch the 2010 Indepenent Spirit Awards last night? Yeah. Me neither. They aired on West Coast time, which meant they started at 11 EST here. And if they can't bother to schedule an awards show to accommodate those of us on the East Cast then I'm not going to bother. That's the deal we made. We get the shitty weather, and in exchange, we get to watch live events in Primetime, while the West Coast gets 75 degree weather every single day of the year and 72 percent of the nation's pretty population.

Generally, those pretty people are less likely to show up at the Independent Spirit Awards, which award the year's best Independent movies, by which I mean -- those that are distributed by the "art house" arms of major studios. Roger Ebert won a lifetime achievement award last night, and was met with a standing ovation. I'd like to see if Ebert got a standing O at the People's Choice Awards.

Ben Stiller was the Honorary Chair of the Spirit Awards last night. Because of course he was. Talk about a Champion of Independent Films. Like Meet the Parents. And Along Came Polly. Actually, Stiller was pretty great about it, and delivered the night's best moments, while all those poor celebrities looked on eating their tuna salad sandwiches brought from home and with the complimentary Shasta.

Stiller kind of rocked the house.


Anyway, here are your winners. And by that, I mean: Precious. Man, it must have been one hell of an upbeat night.
