The Artist was tops at the 27th Annual Film Independent Spirit Awards held in Santa Monica, California on Saturday (February 25th) night.
Seth Rogen hosted the ceremony which may turn out to be a preview for the winners of tonight’s Academy Awards show.
Among The Artist’s accolades for the night: Best Feature, Best Director, Best Male Lead and Best Cinematographer prompting the host to joke about it’s dominance.
“‘The Artist’ is winning everything,” Rogen told the audience. “I thought this is why we created a foreign film category. We can’t compete with them.”
Michelle Williams took the Best Female Lead prize for her turn as the iconic Marilyn Monroe in My Week with Marilyn and George Clooney‘s costar in The Descendants, Shailene Woodley grabbed the win for Best Supporting Female Actress.
Chistopher Plummer and Rogen’s 50/50 also ended up with trophies.
