He looks like if Damien from The Omen got a job at Jiffy Lube. That’s current Hollywood slobber object Timothee Chalamat holding his statue for Best Male Lead for his part as a teenage twink in love with a much older dude in Call Me By Your Name. The Independent Spirit Awards were held yesterday. Variety reports that Jordan Peele’s “white people really ARE evil!” horror/comedy/satire Get Out won for Best Feature and Best Director, and honestly, why is Timothee dressed like a gas station attendant? Surely choosing an outfit for these things isn’t that much of a stressor that you say “eff it” and go with coveralls?
In addition to Get Out winning the Best Feature/Best Director combo, McDormand won Best Female Lead and Sam Rockwell won Best Supporting Male forThree Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Allison Janney’s parrot from I, Tonya flew her to yet another Best Supporting Female win for playing Tonya’s bowl-cutted hell mom. Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird won for Best Screenplay. And the Aubrey Plaza social media stalker flick Ingrid Goes West won Best First Feature.
