Film Independet’s annual Spirit Awards are given to primarily American-made films of $20 million or less budget. Of note this year is the amount of nominations for THE ARTIST, which some weren’t sure would qualify as a film by a French director and starring mostly French actors; as well as the big names left off the list: George Clooney for THE DESCENDANTS, Woody Allen for MIDNIGHT IN PARIS, Glen Close for ALBERT NOBBS.
