    "Boyhood" Nominated for Five Film Independent Spirit Awards; "Inherent Vice" to Receive Robert Altman Award

    Boyhood —a film written, directed, and co-produced by Richard Linklater—has been nominated for five Film Independent Spirit Awards: Best Feature, Best Director for Richard Linklater, Best Supporting Female for Patricia Arquette, Best Supporting Male for Ethan Hawke, and Best Editing for Sandra Adair. The film was also just named the #1 Best Movie of the Year by the Washington Post.

    “As we celebrate 30 years of great independent film,” said Josh Welsh, President of Film Independent, “this year’s nominees are an astonishingly strong group of films and filmmakers which demonstrate the uniqueness of vision we honor at this show.”

    Inherent Vice was selected to receive the Robert Altman Award, which is bestowed upon one film’s director, casting director and ensemble cast. The Altman Award was created in 2008 in honor of legendary director Robert Altman who was known for creating extraordinary ensemble casts. Due to Spirit Awards guidelines, Inherent Vice was not eligible for individual nominations this year.

    “Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice is a testament to the spirit of Altman’s tradition of artistic collaboration,” said Welsh. “The film features an exquisite ensemble of actors masterfully directed and cast.”

    Winners of the 30th Film Independent Spirit Awards will be announced on Saturday, February 21, 2015. The awards ceremony will be broadcast live on IFC at 2pm ET.

    Nonesuch Records released the soundtrack to Boyhood earlier this year and will release the soundtrack to Inherent Vice, featuring music by Jonny Greenwood and more, in December.
