Julianne.s Far From Heaven Triumphs On Oscars Eve

JULIANNE MOORE enjoyed a pre-OSCAR thrill last night (22MAR03) when her movie FAR FROM HEAVEN swept the board at the INDEPENDENT SPIRIT AWARDS in Santa Monica, California.

The film - about a perfect 1950s housewife dealing with her feelings for a black gardener and a homosexual husband - picked up five awards at the 18th annual prize giving, honouring indie movies.

Moore beat JENNIFER ANISTON and MAGGIE GYLLENHAAL among others to take home the Best Actress prize.

The film itself triumphed over THE GOOD GIRL, SECRETARY, TULLY and LOVELY + AMAZING to pick up Best Picture.

It also won honours for Best Director for TODD HAYNES, Best Male Supporting Lead for DENNIS QUAID and Best Cinematography.

The evening took on a musical note with THORA BIRCH, JENNIFER TILLY, ILLEANA DOUGLAS and LESLEY ANN WARREN agreeing to sing tributes to the Best Picture nominees, and they invited guests to sing along as a bouncing ball followed the words to the comical tunes on a big screen.

The full list of winners is as follows:
