2019 Spirit Awards Complete Winners List

The 2019 Spirit Awards took place yesterday evening in Santa Monica, California, and honestly, it looks like they got right what the Oscars got wrong.

SUSPIRIA took home the Robert Altman award, while IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK earned top honors, winning best feature, best director for Barry Jenkins, and best supporting female actor for Regina King. Although obviously grateful, when Jenkins took the stage to accept his award for best director, Jenkins expressed his unease with winning in a category mostly populated with female nominees. “I’m not gonna lie, man: I didn’t want to win this damn award,” Jenkins said at the podium. He went on to point out that although women only made up a tiny minority of big studio productions last year, they comprised more than 40% of the directors in competition at the Sundance Film Festival, as well as 60% of the nominees for best director at the Spirit Awards, thereby hinting that there is still rampant sexism afoot when it comes to giant Hollywood projects.

When Glenn Close approached the podium to accept her award for best actress for her work in THE WIFE, she was joined by her dog Pippi, an adorable tiny white pooch who stared up at his owner lovingly. “He’s my date” explained Close to the audience, noting that she hoped everyone in the crowd didn't mind her little man being at her side. No apologies were needed, obviously, as everyone was just as enamored with Close's presence as her fluffy friend.

The audience became misty-eyed when Richard E. Grant accepted his award for best supporting male actor for his work in CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME? The star, whose character eventually succumbs to AIDS in the film, had to fight back tears himself, as he shared his prize with all of the real life heroes who left this world too soon. “This movie, more than anything, is an homage to that generation of men who were wiped out by that disease.”

It was a wonderful evening, filled with tears and smiles, hosted by Aubrey Plaza, and certainly giving the Oscars a run for their money. It will be interesting to see how the Academy follows tonight.
