I enjoyed watching this evening’s Spirit Awards, if for no other reason because it filled up my queue, and by queue I mean, of course, my handwritten list that I will take with me to my local independent movie rental store. Ellen Page (Juno) won best female lead, and Juno took best feature. Philip Seymour Hoffman won the best male lead for The Savages. He represented my people (full-figured men) well, with something white—a T-shirt? Underwear?—drooping out of his pants.
Congratulations to the winners and all others who keep the proud tradition of nonconformity alive.
