Sideways Cleans Up At Indie Awards

“The comedy Sideways has dominated this year’s Independent Spirit Awards, winning all six of the awards for which it was nominated. It was named best film while Alexander Payne won best director and best screenplay, along with writing partner Jim Taylor. It also won acting awards for stars Paul Giamatti, Thomas Haden Church and Virginia Madsen… The awards, now in their 20th year, are given to films made outside the traditional studio system, and are traditionally held the day before the Oscars.”
