Indie Spirit noms

The nominations for the 2009 Independent Spirit Awards were announced yesterday and one of the big winners was Oscar favorite RACHEL GETTING MARRIED. The Anne Hathaway film scored six nominations tying it with BALLAST and FROZEN RIVER for the most nominations. To all the bat-fanboys out there, THE DARK KNIGHT wasn't nominated for anything so you might want to start a petition or something. Strangely enough, while MILK did very well in the acting categories, the film itself and director Gus Van Sant were left with nominations. I'm sure that will all correct itself though as Oscar season continues. The Independent Spirit Awards will be handed out on February 21st and will be broadcast live and uncut on IFC at 5pm EST.

Extra Tidbit: Yes I was joking about TDK getting an Independent Spirit Award. Sadly I think there are some people out there who could say that and not be joking.
