Hollywood Gets Independent and Spirited Before the Oscars

Before we were overcome with Oscar mania, lots of stars headed to the Independent Spirit Awards in LA on Saturday. After the exciting red carpet, the show was full of parodies and dance numbers featuring Teri Hatcher, Christina Applegate and Rainn Wilson goofing it up onstage. The Wrestler was a big winner, taking home honors for Best Film as well as Best Male Lead. Mickey Rourke gave an off-the-cuff acceptance speech, dedicated to his recently deceased dog Loki. Check out the video here.

Other winners like Penelope Cruz and James Franco celebrated with their trophies in the press room. Mary-Kate Olsen and Ben Kingsley were two of the many famous presenters along with Jessica Alba, Lucy Liu and the newly engaged Claire Danes. Elizabeth Banks and a scruffy Bradley Cooper also took the stage to present. This awards show honored films that cost less than $20 million to make but gave the stars a preview of what was to come on Oscar Sunday.

I like Mary-Kate's dress, but that girl is a monkey. :monkey: It doesn't look good on her. * What is the “right“ outfit to wear at this show? Emile Hirsch is so casual. (Actually, many others are very casual too). I like his sweater.

I usually love the Olsens, but whichever one that is looks like a hot mess. WTF is up with the shoulder pads? Not good for such a tiny girl. That hair will give me nightmares.

I'm glad to see 'the wrestler' and Mickey Rourke get some well deserved awards! He's pulling a Robert Downey Jr and really redeeming himself and bringing to life a great career!
