If Beale Street Could Talk was the big winner at the 34th annual Film Independent Spirit Awards, which were handed out Saturday afternoon inside a tent on the beach in Santa Monica.
Can You Ever Forgive Me? followed with a total of two Spirit Awards wins — best supporting male for Richard E. Grant and best screenplay for Nicole Holofcener and Jeff Whitty.
The other acting winners were Glenn Close as best female lead for The Wife and Ethan Hawke (who wasn't there) as best male lead for First Reformed.
Roma was named best international film at the 2019 Spirit Awards, while Won't You Be My Neighbor? was named best documentary.
"I was shocked that they asked," Plaza told The Hollywood Reporter of her emcee gig. "I've hosted live shows at underground theaters in New York, variety shows when I was doing stand-up, but I've really never hosted anything."
Heading into the show, We the Animals, documentary filmmaker Jeremiah Zagar's narrative debut about a mixed-race family with three young sons in upstate New York and based on Justin Torres' 2011 debut novel of the same name, led all nominees with a total of five noms. Eighth Grade, First Reformed and You Were Never Really Here followed with four apiece. (Click here to see what the stars are wearing on the blue carpet.)
