'THE SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK' Owns The Independent Spirit Awards



The Independent Spirit Awards, which honor the best of independent and art house cinema, are scheduled to air on IFC tonight at 10pm EST. But if you've been anywhere near the Internet, chances are the cyber geeks have already spoiled the winners list for you.

So you won't be alarmed to see that The Silver Linings Playbook basically swept the floor with the rest of the nominees, taking home best feature, director, screenplay and lead actress (Jennifer Lawrence). The rest of the acting winners are both Helen Hunt and John Hawkes from The Sessions...and (stunningly) Matthew McConaughey from Magic Mike.  Beasts of the Southern Wild, which went in with four nominations, only came away with a best cinematography win.
