Spirit Awards - Get Out Gets In

‘Twas the night before Oscar, and all through the house – Get Out was doing very well for itself at the Independent Spirit Awards. Jordan Peele’s Stepford’s Coming To Dinner movie picked up Best Picture and Director. Greta Gerwig’s only win was for Screenplay, with the acting awards (for once) sticking very closely to what we’re expecting at the Oscars – McDormand, Rockwell and Janney all in place, with only Timothée Chalamet shifting things as Best Actor. But then again Gary Oldman was not starring in an indie movie. (Strong opening monologue from Nick Kroll and John Mulaney - have a look below.)

Here’s the full list of what we can only presume is definitely the last pre-Oscars awards show -
