The Independent Spirit Awards are here and some of the brightest rising stars in Hollywood are being honored for their indie work in 2013.
One way that the award show is starting to branch out is by adding new categories to the event. While it’s not turning into a four-hour long snoozefest like the Oscars, the Spirit Awards are starting to honor all aspects of indie filmmaking and that’s just a glorious thing.
Case in point being the first ever Best Editing award handed out on Saturday. Nat Sanders was given the distinct honor of being the first ever recipient of the award for his work on Short Term 12.
Shane Carruth & David Lowery – Upstream Color
Jem Cohen & Marc Vives – Museum Hours
Jennifer Lame – Frances Ha
Cindy Lee – Una Noche
Nat Sanders – Short Term 12 — WINNER
It’s great that the Spirit Awards are honoring all of the ‘little guys’ — or at least as ay as they can. Short Term 12 deserved to be honored as well and Sanders work was on the receiving end of the honoring.
