2009 Spirit Award Nominations Announced

Articles - Acting

The Spirit Awards organizers are assuring us that this year’s ceremony will maintain its casual atmosphere but with a few changes. The festivities, airing live and uncut on March 5, 2010, move to the L.A. Live Campus in downtown and will air at a hipper time slot—Friday evening at 11 p.m. EST instead of Saturday afternoon. The nominees, chosen from a field of 240 films, were announced December 1st by Matt Dillon and Taraji P. Henson.
