It may not be a lot, but Anomalisa racked up 4 nominations.
Thought provoking dramas comprise the majority of this year’s field of nominees at The Film Independent Spirit Awards with such excellent entries as Spotlight and Diary of a Teenage Girl.
However, comedies, albeit thought provoking ones, found their way in.
Charlie Kaufman’s Anomalisa, which we have only heard praise for, is up for Best Feature, Best Director (w/Duke Johnson), Best Screenplay, and Best Female Lead (Jennifer Jason Leigh).
The brilliant Swedish existential comedy A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence from Roy Andersson is up for Best International Film.
You can the rest of the nominees here.
Hopefully, either or both will take home a statue to offer something not so sobering in the field of winners. The ceremony takes places at the end of February next year.
