While the Independent Spirit Award announces their nominations earlier than anyone else, they only handed the awards last night.
The two big winners were Little Miss Sunshine and Half Nelson, but both have to be seen as underdogs for tonight's Oscars.

As always, Award Season officially begins with the announcing of the Independent Spirit Award
nominations. While this is the first major awards to announce their nominations, they are one of the last to hand them out so the nominees have a long wait ahead of them.

It's a disastrous week for DVD releases with more than half a dozen of them that I rated as must have. I just don't know how I'm going to afford to buy them all, but I will. As for the DVD Pick of the Week, I was able to narrow that list down to three, but I wasn't able to decide on just one. They are, in no particular order: Slither - Buy from Amazon, Greg the Bunny- The Best of the Film Parodies - Buy from Amazon, and Degrassi The Next Generation - Season 4 - Buy from Amazon. And in the better late than never category, we have Her Best Move, which can be purchased directly from the official website. (If I've missed any other releases, don't hesitate to e-mail me and I'll try to correct that oversight as soon as possible.)

Wassup Rockers surprised on top of the per theatre charts with $29,400 in its lone theatre, but it wasn't the only film to excel over the weekend. Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man also opened in just one theatre, but still managed an impressive $17,130 in ticket sales. The final film to crack $10,000 was the overall box office leader, Click, which pulled in more than $40 million in 3,749 theatres for an average of $10,673.

It's a crowded weekend for limited releases, not so much in terms of quantity but more in terms of quality. This is great news for those that frequent art house cinemas as they will have plenty of choices. But this does mean that some worthy films might be squeezed out by the competition.

Not much this week in terms of new sites or updates and all the ones that are award-worthy have already won the weekly website award. The best of the rest is The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

, but it certainly doesn't deserve to win the awards.
