We're now in the full throes of awards season with the first major nominations we've gotten since the recently wrapped up Gotham Awards. Actually, for an awards show which prides itself in indulging in some of the art house films that lay on the fringes of our knowledge, this year's nominees for the Film Independent Spirit Awards are rather well known. Currently, four of the nominees for Best Feature are in the running for an Oscar nomination for Best Picture. That might be saying that it's been a disappointing year in terms of mainstream blockbusters, and that seems like the best explanation I can figure out of it. Take a look at this year's nominations below.
