Spirit Awards Live Stream: Watch 2015 IFC Award Show Online!
The 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards take place LIVE from Santa Monica, California on Saturday. The low-key annual ceremony, always held the day before the Oscars, will be hosted by Fred Armisen and Kristen Bell. Watch the live stream below!
It marks the first time in three decades the Spirit Awards will be televised live. IFC has the broadcast. The Spirit Awards feature a lot of overlapping nominees with the Oscars, while also including several high-profile Oscar snubs, such as Selma director Ava DuVernay. The show typically honors movies with a budget of under $20 million or so.
The five nominees for Best Feature are Birdman, Boyhood, Love is Strange, Selma and Whiplash. Michael Keaton, Andre Benjamin, John Lithgow, Jake Gyllenhaal and David Oyelowo are up for Best Male Lead. Rinko Kikuchi, Jenny Slate, Tilda Swinton, Julianne Moore and Marion Cotillard are nominated for Best Female Lead. A special award will be given to Inherent Vice director Paul Thomas Anderson.
Will some of Saturday’s big winners go on to take home Oscar gold on Sunday? There’s only one way to find out. Watch the IFC live stream of the 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards at ifc.com/watch-now/stream, beginning at 5 p.m. Eastern, and stay tuned for Gossip Cop coverage of the Academy Awards.
