It was a cold and windy afternoon under the tents at the 2011 Film Independent Spirit Awards, as many of the usual suspects picked up awards, including James Franco and Natalie Portman for Best Male and Female Leads for their roles in Oscar favorites “127 Hours” and “Black Swan” respectively. “Black Swan” was the big winner of the night, also winning Best Director for Darren Aronofsky and Best Feature. “Winter’s Bone” also made a strong showing, winning both Best Supporting Actor and Actress for John Hawkes and Dale Dickey. Awards juggernaut “The King’s Speech” also picked up Best Foreign Film.
We managed to get a bit of James Franco in the press room on video and a bunch of great images of everyone from Mark Ruffalo to Jesse Eisenberg to Jon Hamm and more.
See the full list of winners below.
