“Silver Linings Playbook” Spirit Award Winner
Posted by LaDale Anderson on Feb 23, 2013 - 7:40:59 PM

SANTA MONICA—Just a day before the final awards ceremony, the Independent Spirit Awards were held on Saturday, February 23 and the big winner was the dramedy “Silver Linings Playbook” that took home four awards including Best Feature.  Could that be a sign for the movie’s chance at pulling a huge upset in the Best Picture race at the Academy Awards Sunday night? 

 

Jennifer Lawrence picked up the award for Best Actress for her work in “Silver Linings Playbook” beating out fellow Oscar nominee Quvenzhané Wallis “Beasts of the Southern Wild.” John Hawkes took home the prize for Best Actor for his work in “The Sessions,” while Best Supporting Actor went to “Magic Mike” hunk Matthew McConaughey.

Oscar-winner Helen Hunt claimed the Best Supporting Actress prize for her astounding performance in “The Sessions.”  David O. Russell was a double winner at the Spirit Awards taking home awards for Best Director “Silver Linings Playbook” and Best Screenplay “Silver Linings Playbook.”

 

The Best Feature award was given to the teen dramedy “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.  “Amour” was victorious in the Best International Film category, just as “The Invisible War” walked away with the Best Documentary award.  Ben Richardson “Beasts of the Southern Wild” was a winner for Best Cinematography.  The John Cassavetes Award was given to “Middle of Nowhere” and the Producers’ Award went to “Stones in the Sun.”

The ceremony was hosted by funnyman and "SNL" alum Andy Samberg.
