2021 Independent Spirit Award nomination

In the first year of its TV nominations, the Spirit Awards won “Little America,” “Unconventional,” and “I May You Destroy.”

The 36th Film Independent Spirit Awards have just three months to go, and nominations for the 2021 ceremony came this morning. Last year’s Spirit Awards dominated “Uncut James”, winning awards for Best Actor (Adam Sandler), Best Director (Josh and Benny Safi) and Best Editing. Lulu Wang’s “The Farewell” received the honor for Best Feature. The lead actress award was given to “Judy” star Renee Zellweger, who won the Oscar for Best Actress.

This year’s most nominated film is “Never Rarely Sometimes Always Always”, which received a total of 7 nominations. “Minory” also remained strong with 6 nominations, while “Ma Rainey Black Bottom” and “Nomadland” each filled 5 nominations. Netflix was the most nominated studio with 16 nominations, followed by 10 with Focus features and 9 with A24.

As always, the budget cutoff for films eligible for the Spirit Awards is $ 22.5 million. For this reason, many high-profile Netflix Oscar contenders such as “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” “Da 5 Bloods,” and “Munk” are not eligible for the 2021 ceremony.

The 36th Independent Spirit Awards will take place on Thursday 22 April. The event will be broadcast live at IFC at 10 pm ET. In addition to linear broadcasting, the Spirit Awards will also stream simultaneously on AMC +. Following the broadcast, the full award ceremony will be made available on demand on the AMC + and IFC platforms starting on April 23.
