How To Watch 2017 Show Hosted by Nick Kroll & John Mulaney

"Saturday Night Live" veteran Molly Shannon won best supporting female for her role as a mother dying of cancer in the film "Other People".

- After "Toni Erdmann", the German dramedy, won for best global film, its director, Maren Ade, said from the stage, "I'm really happy and proud to stand here as a female director, because it's still not normal enough".

Among the categories, Oscar Best Picture noms Moonlight from A24 and Manchester By The Sea from Amazon and Roadside Attractions up for Best Feature today.

Oh, Hello comedians John Mulaney and Nick Kroll opened the 32 Spirit Awards with a monologue that poked fun at Mel Gibson, Donald Trump and Steve Bannon.

Jackie, a political drama focusing on former United States president John F. Kennedy's assassination through the eyes of former first lady Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, also won nothing. The Spirit Awards is the premiere awards show for the independent film community and continues to show its dedication to recognizing and supporting diverse artists through its collaboration with American Airlines. And as Kroll pointed out, any politicizing was unnecessary anyway because "if this room leaned any further to the left, we would literally topple into the Pacific Ocean".
