Comedy Scores Big at 2018 Spirit Awards + John Mulaney and Nick Kroll’s Opening Monologue

While Get Out took top honors of Best Feature and Best Director at this year’s Spirit Awards, seemingly every other award went towards comedy as you can see below:

BEST FEMALE LEAD – Frances McDormand, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
BEST SUPPORTING FEMALE – Allison Janney, I, Tonya
BEST SUPPORTING MALE – Sam Rockwell, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
BEST SCREENPLAY – Greta Gerwig, Lady Bird
BEST EDITING – Tatiana S. Riegel, I, Tonya
BEST FIRST FEATURE – Ingrid Goes West (Director: Matt Spicer, Producers: Jared Ian Goldman, Adam Mirels, Robert Mirels, Aubrey Plaza, Tim White, Trevor White)
BEST FIRST SCREENPLAY – Emily V. Gordon, Kumail Nanjiani, The Big Sick

Hopefully, that’s a good omen for the Oscar results later tonight.

Also, John Mulaney and Nick Kroll served up another sharp awards show monologue that was fun and loose, but also game to go a little dark or blue. Watch it here.

One last thing to notice: We’re pretty sure Timothy Chalemet had Armie Hammer who was on a beard shirtless on Facetime (as Hammer was not present at the ceremony). It definitely sweetened the Call Me By Your Name chunk of the monologue.
