Horror Makes a Strong Showing Among 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards Nominees

spirit awards - Horror Makes a Strong Showing Among 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards NomineesThe nominees for the 30th annual Film Independent Spirit Awards were announced this morning in Los Angeles, and a couple of horror films made surprisingly strong showings. While I’m predicting Boyhood will be the big winner when the Awards are given out on IFC on February 21, 2015, here’s hoping a few of “our” films also get a little love.
