Independent, If Only In Spirit

Little Miss Sunshine won the Best Feature, Best Director, Best First Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor categories at the Independent Spirit Awards. You'll not hear so much about these awards - not as compared to those Oscars - but it is every bit the same modelled, poised, crowd-pleasing affair, just with the agenda to support and promote independent films in particular.

Well, those films that are independent in reputation and 'independent' in style, at least. In this way, the Miramax-ification of the film world has affected the Independent Spirit Awards even more so than the Oscars.
