Best: Matthew McConaugheys first major award
Do you know that after 20 years in the business Matthew McConaughey has never won a single major award? If you're going to say, "He must have won a Golden Globe." Nope. "SAG Ensemble along the way?" Never. Yes, the Texas native took home critic prizes this year from the New York Film Critics' Circle and the National Society of Film Critics, but his Indie Spirit for "Magic Mike" is the first honor from his peers (or at least a good number who are part of Film Independent). Pretty special moment considering how much McConaughey has given to the independent film community over the years.
