Independent Spirit Award Nominations Announced

Awards season has officially arrived as various groups announce their picks for the year's best films. Among these groups, the Independent Spirit Awards represents one of the more prestigous ceremonies. For my money, they not only provide a hint of things to come for the Academy Awards, but also end up representing a superior line of nominees. Leading the way this year are Precious and The Last Station, each with five nominations.

Here are a few of the major categories:
