Best and Worst of the 2014 Independent Spirit Awards
Worst: A drone?
Awards shows are a tough gig. We get it. It can be difficult to liven things up. Someone thought it would be neat to have a drone/helicopter thing fly in the results for the Best Supporting Female race for Andy Samberg and Bill Hader to announce, and I imagine the ladies who found themselves in the thick of it — Lupita Nyong'o, June Squibb, etc. — could have dealt without that added slice of anticipation. Mostly it was just a weak bit that felt too arbitrary for its own good. Let's leave that one on the drawing board next year, shall we?
