Oscars Get Spirit for IFC Party

A change in the annual party schedule over Oscar weekend will be a huge benefit to the Indie Spirit Awards.

The Spirits are handed out on Saturday afternoon under a huge tent on the beach in Santa Monica near Shutters hotel.

A post-awards reception always follows at the hotel sponsored by the IFC Channel. But every year, because Miramax throws its lively “Max Awards,” most Spirit winners had to decamp quickly in order to get back and change for the Beverly Hills romp.

This year, however, Miramax, now The Weinstein Company, has decided to take a year off. (They’ll back next year, don’t worry, with lots of nominees, I’m sure.)

The result is that the Spirit reception at Shutters is turning into a huge event, much bigger than in the past.

Already RSVP'd are Tobey Maguire, Terrence Howard, Jimmy Kimmel (girlfriend Sarah Silverman is hosting the show), Christopher Guest, Jane Lynch, Zooey Deschanel, Djimon Hounsou, Emilie de Ravin, Josh Hartnett, Henry Rollins, Rachel Bilson. Good Charlotte’s Joel Madden is deejaying. More to come …



Если не ошибаюсь, это будет за день до церемонии вручения Оскаров. Все еще надеюсь, что он будет и на Оскаре, раз такое дело.


ДА! Вот еще подтверждение:

Robert Altman to Receive Honorary Spirit Award at the 2007 Film Independent's Spirit Awards

Thursday February 15, 8:30 am ET

New Spirit Award Created in Director's Name

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dawn Hudson, Executive Director of Film Independent, announced today the creation of a new Spirit Award - The Robert Altman Award - to be given to one film's ensemble cast and director, as chosen by the Spirit Awards nominating committee. The first ever Robert Altman Award will be given out at the 2008 Spirit Awards.

In conjunction with the announcement of this new award, a tribute to Altman will be featured at this year's Spirit Awards ceremony on Saturday, February 24, 2007. An Honorary Spirit Award will be given to the late director in recognition for his body of work and contribution to the ensemble genre. Talent from the maverick filmmaker's various films, including Robert Downey, Jr., Elliott Gould, Christopher Guest, Sally Kellerman, Andie MacDowell, Helen Mirren, and John C. Reilly, will come on-stage to acknowledge this honor.

"Robert Altman's films represent the uniqueness of vision Film Independent champions," said Hudson. "For his commitment to challenging the status quo and changing the landscape of independent film, we honor him with this new award."

Introducing clips for this year's Best Feature nominees will be Alan Arkin (Little Miss Sunshine), Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth), Shareeka Epps (Half Nelson), Marcia Gay Harden (Dead Girl), and Forest Whitaker (American Gun). Dennis Hopper will present a Special Distinction Award to David Lynch and Laura Dern for their collaborative work. Sharon Stone and Andy Garcia will present this year's filmmaker grants.

As part of the Spirit Awards ceremony, various talent will perform song parodies highlighting each of the five Best Feature nominees.

The 2007 Film Independent's Spirit Awards will take place in a tent on the beach in Santa Monica on Saturday, February 24, 2007. As previously announced, Sarah Silverman will serve as Master of Ceremonies for the second year in a row. The show airs live beginning at 2:00 pm PST on IFC (Independent Film Channel).

Throughout his extraordinary career, four-time nominee and two-time Spirit Award winner Robert Altman has surprised, entertained, and challenged audiences with vibrant, freewheeling films that stretch the boundaries of the medium. He was the recipient of an Honorary Academy Award® at the 78th Academy Awards presentation in 2006, in a ceremony recognizing "a career that has repeatedly reinvented the art form and inspired filmmakers and audiences alike."

Altman's more than thirty features bear witness to an extraordinary creative range: films made with enormous casts (Nashville, Shortcuts), as well as with a solitary cast member (Secret Honor); films celebrating male camaraderie (M*A*S*H*, California Split) and those exploring women's consciousness (Images, Three Women, Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean). He has inverted, satirized and enriched genres like the western (McCabe and Mrs. Miller), the gangster melodrama (Thieves Like Us), the detective film (The Long Goodbye), the biography (Vincent and Theo), and the English drawing-room whodunit (Gosford Park).

His numerous accolades include five Academy Award® nominations for Best Director (Gosford Park, Short Cuts, The Player, M*A*S*H*, Nashville), and three for Best Film (Gosford Park, M*A*S*H*, Nashville); at Cannes, the Palme d'Or/Best Film (M*A*S*H*), and Best Director (The Player); the Venice Film Festival Grand Prix, best Film (Short Cuts); the British Academy Award (BAFTA) for Best British Film (Gosford Park), Best Director (The Player), and Best Foreign Television Series ("Tanner '88"); and two Spirit Award nominations for Best Feature (Cookie's Fortune, Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle), and two Spirit Award wins for Best Director (Short Cuts) and Best Screenplay (Short Cuts).
