Newcomer Daniel Kaluuya lost the Best Leading Actor award to Gary Oldman for his role in Darkest Hour. The Film Independent Spirit Awards , an annual celebration of low-budget cinema that takes place on Santa Monica beach just outside Los Angeles, are seen as an strong indicator of movies that could strike Oscars gold. Fans were also outraged at the film's treatment.

The Time's Up initiative is not planning a coordinated protest on Sunday - like the striking red carpet "blackout" at the Golden Globes.

During his acceptance speech, Peele acknowledged how much trouble he had cracking Get Out, but he eventually made it across the finish line, and it's a good thing he did. "So I want to dedicate this to all the people who raised my voice and let me make this movie", said Peele while accepting his maiden Oscar.

"I thought it was my favorite movie that I hadn't seen, so it was really fun to write", Jordan Peele concedes.

Bland Strong But Sharma Surprise Leader In Mexico
This son of an army colonel, Sharma turned pro when he was 16 and has learned the ropes the hard way. You have to expect great things from yourself if you want to play at a high stage, said Sharma.

Hey, he might even win more before the end of the night.

Peele has had a massive awards season, especially considering he told ET that he "literally thought this was an unproduceable movie, because people seem to be afraid to take race on". Instead, Peele is developing four other "social thrillers" he plans on rolling out over the course of the next decade.

Gerwig is the fifth woman to be nominated in the best director category but only Kathryn Bigelow has won, for The Hurt Locker in 2010. A great script, a great movie, and a reminder of what real, thoughtful sci-fi looks and feels like.
