PREVIOUS: 9:50AM: Deadline is live blogging the nominations announcement for the 30th Film Independent Spirit Awards today. Rosario Dawson and Diego Luna will be revealing the big list live from the W Hollywood.
The awards ceremony is traditionally held the day before the Oscar ceremony, in the case of next year, it’s Feb. 21 on the beach in Santa Monica, Calif.
