Independent Spirit Noms and Gotham Winners

notthere3Todd Haynes’s mulitlayered Bob Dylan biopic I’m Not There was nominated for four categories at this morning’s announcement for Film Independent’s Spirit Awards, including best feature, best director and acting considerations for Marcus Carl Franklin and Cate Blanchett for their Dylan-ish turns. Also heavily represented with four noms each were Jason Reitman’s teen-pregnancy-com Juno (looking like the next best thing to a Judd Apatow release), Julian Schnabel’s The Diving Bell and the Butterfly and Tamara Jenkins’s comedy The Savages, with Laura Linney and Phillip Seymore Hoffman. Full nominations list at indieWIRE.

Meanwhile at the IFP Gotham Awards, Sean Penn’s Into the Wild took home Best Feature honors, Best Documentary went to Michael Moore’s Sicko, and Ellen Page received the Breakthough Actor Award for her lead in Juno. Oscars over yonder. More – Hollywood Reporter
