When the Independent Spirit Awards first started its broadcast on the Independent Film Channel in 1994, it was billed as the anti-Oscar.

You could watch the festivities during Oscar commercial breaks!

Now, the Independent Spirit Awards is broadcast the day before the Oscars, and time and time again, nominations between the two award-giving bodies overlapped (such as "Little Miss Sunshine" last year).

This morning (Nov. 27th), the nominations were announced! Congrats to the filmmakers behind "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly," "I'm Not There," "Juno", "A Mighty Heart," and "Paranoid Park" for scoring Best Feature nominations.

Mister Zach Braff and Miss Lisa Kudrow served as nomination presenters.

The first-ever Robert Altman Award was also announced. And it's going to the visionary Todd Haynes and his film "I'm Not There." The solid ensemble cast is also honored (watch this flick for the great Cate Blanchett!).

The 2008 Film Independent's Spirit Awards ceremony will air on IFC on Saturday, February 23rd, the day before the Oscars.

For complete list of nominations,
