OSCAR WATCH: Indie Spirit Nominations

I feel like everyone says this every year but, how is awards season here already? Indeed, earlier today we got one of the first big announcements of the circuit with the nominations for the Independent Spirit Awards, recognizing the best in independent cinema. As the Academy increasingly looks to smaller budget films to fill out their own nominee lists, these awards have become an important precursor as of late. And that spells good news for "Moonlight", a supposed Oscar frontrunner which leads the field alongside Andrea Arnold's more divisive "American Honey". Meanwhile "Manchester by the Sea" also had an expectedly strong showing. Will this year's Best Feature winner once again repeat at the Oscars? Check out the full list of nominees below and stay tuned as awards season is now in full swing.
