The Good, The Bad, The Ugly, and the Very, Very Independent — the Spirit Awards and the Razzies

posted by Nell Minow

The Spirit Awards for independent film were announced yesterday, as were the Razzie nominations for the worst films and performances of 2011.  Good news for “The Artist,” not such good news for Adam Sandler, who broke the record for the most Razzie nominations, because three of his films were included along with his performances as both actor and actress (in drag) in “Jack and Jill.”
