This was a unique year for the Independent Spirit Awards. Not only was it the first time since 1997 that the ceremony wasn’t aired live on IFC, but it also marked the first time that the acting categories went gender-neutral.

Everything Everywhere All at Once is well on its way to Oscar gold. Not only does it have the most nominations there as well, with 11, but it has been the movie to beat for quite some time now. While the Independent Spirit Award for Best Film is far from an accurate predictor of the Best Picture Oscar–six of the last 12 winners have lined up–the odds of Everything Everywhere All at Once boosting that stat over 50% are almost guaranteed.

What do you think of the winners of this year’s Independent Spirit Award winners? Were you surprised or disappointed in certain categories? Let us know!
