The 2009 Independent Spirit Awards were held last night, celebrating the best of the best independent films that were released over the last year. I love the Indie Spirits because it gives you a great bunch of indie selections to seek out. Films that might be just out of reach for the Academy Awards like The Wackness, Medicine for Melancholy and The Signal get recognition through nominations. The big news is that Darren Aronofsky‘s The Wrestler took home Best Picture, Best Male Lead (Mickey Rourke) and Best Cinematography (Maryse Alberti). Check out the full list of winners after the jump.
