Fox Searchlight Leads Indie Spirit Awards Nods

Fox Searchlight received 11 nominations to lead all other independent film production companies contending for honors at the Independent Spirit Awards to be held on February 23rd. Its Juno was nominated for best feature, director (Jason Reitman), actress (Ellen Page), and first screenplay (Diablo Cody). The Bob Dylan-based drama I'm Not There also received nominations for best director (Todd Haynes), supporting actress (Cate Blanchett); and supporting actor (Marcus Carl Franklin). The movie was also chosen to receive the first Robert Altman Award. Paramount Vantage, Miramax, Focus Features and The Weinstein Co each netted five nominations. Other films competing in the best feature category are The Diving Bell and the Butterfly and Paranoid Park from Miramax; I'm Not There from the Weinstein Co.; and A Mighty Heart from Paramount Vantage. None of the films was a box office hit, and analysts say that none is likely to contend for an Oscar.
