The Spirit Awards, which celebrate the best in independent film, are handed out each year the night before the Oscars and are generally ignored by most. This year, they'll be hosted by Joel McHale, which means they'll still be largely ignored except for the McHale bits we all watch on YouTube the next day.

The nominations have been announced. They're pretty much what you'd expect, which is to say: If it's an indie film you've heard of in 2010, it's probably been nominated.
