Jared Leto: Sure Winner

Leto is also expected to win the Best Supporting Actor Oscar tomorrow night.

Leto made the crowd laugh with a long list of thank-yous, including home-made burritos and “all the women I’ve been with and all the women who think they’ve been with me.”

Nebraska Screenplay

“Nebraska” screenwriter Bob Nelson has won the best Spirit Award for first screenplay in the first award given out, who said he wanted to not thank his wife and is so glad to be “the oldest recipient of best first screenplay.” In jest, he also thanked Former SNL actor Will Forte for losing three pounds to play his role.

The Independent Spirit Awards started Saturday with Angie networking with Brad Weston, head of New Regency, and Jared Leto glad handing director Alexander Payne.

Shailene Woodley and Lupita embraced and Willie Garson was hanging out near the gelato before Patton Oswalt took the stage.

“We are living in a golden age of lesbian award show hosts and the role who look like them,” Oswalt said, referring to himself and Ellen DeGeneres, the Academy Awards show host.

“We lost the rain but that does not mean that God doesn’t love you,” Oswalt quipped. “Alec Baldwin is moving here.”

“Some of these movies premiered just on my iPhone,” Oswalt said, referring to the alternative methods of filmmaking. He did however, give props to John Waters, who was sporting a red tie and a thin mustache. “You should always go too far,” he said referring to waters’ first film.

Tribute to John Waters

Oswalt evoked the first big applause by bowing to indie icon John Waters, noting that his first movie, “Hag in a Black Leather Jacket,” debuted 50 years ago.

He got his first groans by saying Mia Farrow would present the Someone to Watch Award and that Bruce Dern was in attendance “to see the ocean one last time.”
