Spirit Awards: 'O.J.: Made in America' Wins Best Documentary

The 32nd annual ceremony took place in Santa Monica on Saturday.

O.J.: Made in America won best documentary at the Independent Spirit Awards.

It beat out 13th (directed and produced by Ava DuVernay; produced by Spencer Averick and Howard Barish), Cameraperson (directed and produced by Kirsten Johnson; produced by Marilyn Ness), I Am Not Your Negro (directed and produced by Raoul Peck; produced by Remi Grellety and Herbert Peck), Sonita (directed by Rokhsareh Ghaem Maghami; produced by Gerd Haag) and Under the Sun (directed by Vitaly Mansky; produced by Natalya Manskaya).

Director-producer Ezra Edelman and producers Nina Krstic, Tamara Rosenberg and Caroline Waterlow took to the stage to accept the award.

"It takes a village to make a ... really long film," Edelman said before going on to thank the film's crew. "This is truly an honor that I share with them. To be in a room with all these incredible storytellers whom I've admired for so long — thank you."

John Mulaney and Nick Kroll hosted the 32nd annual Independent Spirit Awards, which took place in Santa Monica Saturday afternoon.
