OXFORD TOWN — Sure the Oscars are this week but a far more interesting awards ceremony happens this Friday: The Independent Spirit Awards hosted by the Independent Film Channel. Now in their 25th year, this year’s event is to be hosted by the delightful Eddie Izzard. Anyone who attended this year’s Oxford Film Festival may be interested to follow along with several of our recent guests to find out if they win.
Recent guest Ray McKinnon is up for an award for best supporting male in “That Evening Sun,” against Woody Harrelson, Christopher Plummer, Christian McKay and Jemaine Clement. “Vicious Kind,” a spotlight feature at this year’s film festival is up for best screenplay by director/writer Lee Toland Krieger.
