Natalie Portman and Black Swan win big at the Independent Spirit Awards
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Hoping to capitalize on the pre-Oscar craziness and red carpet madness going on, the Independent Spirit Awards announced their winners on Saturday. Although it’s unlikely BLACK SWAN will have similar success at the Oscars, the filmmakers have to be pleased that they cleaned up on the major categories, taking home awards for Best Feature, Best Director, Best Cinematography and Best Actress for Natalie Portman. The other winners included James Franco for 127 HOURS and John Hawkes and Dale Dickey for their supporting roles in WINTER’S BONE.
It was nice to see BLACK SWAN get some love on the awards circuit. This close to the Oscars, it seems everything is now going to THE KING’S SPEECH (which did manage to win “Best Foreign Film”) or THE SOCIAL NETWORK. Check out our page listing all the Academy award winners as they’re announced.
