2010 IFC Independent Spirit Award Nominations For Indie Film

Precious Leads the 2010 Independent Spirit Award Nominations

Matt Dillon and Taraji P. Henson were up to announce the 2010 Independent Spirit Awards nominations this morning in LA, and the nominees are making me smile: Precious is represented in almost every major category, with nods for the director, actresses, screenplay, and film. And though they're yet to be released, both The Last Station and A Single Man won several nominations, which is only upping my anticipation for them. One thing I can't resist mentioning? (500) Days of Summer received nods for best feature and best male lead for Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
