The Independent Spirit Awards turned into “endlessly honoring Moonlight” and I was completely okay with that. Moonlight picked up Spirit Awards for Best Screenplay, Director, Cinematographer, Best Feature and the cast received the Robert Altman Award which recognizes extraordinary ensemble filmmaking in independent film. It was during the Altman Award that the two youngest cast members stole all the hearts in the room:

As for the ladies of Moonlight, Naomie Harris wore this completely blah nothingburger Chanel minidress, and Janelle Monae wore Salvatore Ferragamo, in her preferred black-and-white. I guess Naomie is saving the best looks for the Oscars and Oscar parties, although who even knows? I have not been impressed with her fashion during this awards season.
I’m also including photos of Barry Jenkins (the director), my love Mahershala Ali and CB’s new crush Trevante Rhodes. These photos are like Peak Black Excellence. I’m glad the Spirit Awards honored Moonlight so hard, because I feel like Moonlight will probably only pick up one or two Oscars during the La La Land sweep. Like, I think Barry Jenkins will win Adapted Screenplay and maybe Mahershala Ali for Supporting Actor and that’s it.
Also: this doesn’t fit anywhere else, but the Spirit Awards’ hosts were Nick Kroll and John Mulaney and their opening bit was actually hilarious. Enjoy. Stick around for the end when they do real quotes from real independent directors.

Naomie: one of the best bodies in Hollywood. That dress is totally meh on her but she gets a pass from me, just because she’s so damn gorgeous.
nothingburger! hah!!!! but great description. This looks almost business casual to me, like all you have to do is throw on a jacket and you could wear it to court!
Yeah, I agree with you, @manda, my day to day work clothes will now be known as “nothingburger”. I like it it!
I’m utterly confounded by the cut and fit of her mini. Was it supposed to be a 60’s type sheath? Why is it so small!? Why that stupid lace, which looks like UGLY bike shorts in photos!? Karl!!!
(Oops, sorry. )
i love the creepy quote … my new life motto
Janelle looks lovely though.
Thank you!! Look at Trevante’s smile in that pic!
i love john mulaney and nick kroll!
that dress isn’t doing naomie any favors. love her though.
There is a certain sex appeal radiating from Mahershala. I see it and I’m digging it.
She is very beautiful. She gave a good performance in Moonlight. Otherwise I found her boring.
Chanel sucks. Why do these gorgeous women keep wearing it? Janelle looks fab. The men are killing it this year in style, tho.
I’m in love with the entire cast of Moonlight!
