Awards season is heating up! The Spirit Awards were announced overnight, giving us the first batch of nominees in what's already shaping up to be an exciting race. Though the Spirit Awards honour independent film, there are lots of movies on this list that will probably make it all the way to the Oscars, like Silver Linings Playbook and Moonrise Kingdom. There are also a few surprises, like the fun ones (Matthew McConaughey for best supporting male in Magic Mike!) and the sweet ones (The Perks of Being a Wallflowerfor best first feature).
The Spirit Awards air on Saturday, Feb. 23, and you can see the full list of the nominees after the jump.
