Spirit Awards nominations are out; several Sundance alumni picked
Nominations are out for the Independent Spirit Awards — and it looks like a reunion of last year's Sundance Film Festival, complete with an appearance by Robert Redford.
Redford's one-man drama "All Is Lost" took four nominations, including Best Feature, best director for J.C. Chandor, male lead for Redford, and cinematography for Frank G. DeMarco.
Leading the nominations is "12 Years a Slave," which got seven nominations. Alexander Payne's father-son drama "Nebraska" got six. Those films, along with "All Is Lost," "Frances Ha" and "Inside Llewyn Davis," will fight it out in the Best Feature category.
Further down the line, though, are nominations for several movies that played at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. Below is a full list of nominees, with a • marking those that were at Sundance.
