Best and Worst of the 2013 Independent Spirit Awards
Best: 'Perks of Being a Wallflower' not forgotten
If there has been one huge disappointment this awards season it's the lack of major honors for indie sweetheart "The Perks of Being A Wallflower." Stephen Chbosky's adaptation of his own novel shockingly didn't make the best film category, director or supporting actor (Ezra Miller), but the movie received some redemption by winning best first feature over competition such as "Safety Not Guaranteed" and "Sound of My Voice." Years from now, people will look back and wonder how "Perks" received so few kudos from both critics and the movie industry as a whole. Oh, well. At least it's got a shot at dominating the MTV Movie Awards. Right? Right?
