2018 Independent Spirit Awards Winners - Get Out

With the Oscars just around the corner, it’s almost time to wrap up awards season. But before Hollywood has its biggest night, the Independent Spirit Awards always take the time to honor some of the smaller, indie movies. In this case, some of these movies have already made quite a run during awards season, were distributed by a major studio and ended up with a bunch of Oscar nominations, but they were also independently financed.

The 2018 Independent Spirit Awards winners were announced Saturday night, and Get Out came away with the big prize for Best Feature. In addition, Jordan Peele won Best Director. But the film wasn’t able to come away with Best Screenplay. Instead, that honor went to Greta Gerwig for Lady Bird. Check out the rest of the 2018 Independent Spirit Awards winners below.
