Director Todd Haynes‘ quirky, all-star Bob Dylan-inspired movie I’m Not There is set to be the toast of the IFC Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, California, in February, after landing the event’s first Robert Altman Award.
Announced at the Spirit Awards last year, the honor is given to the director, casting agent and cast of an outstanding indie movie.
Meanwhile, Ang Lee‘s controversial Lust, Caution is also a multi-nominee; the film’s stars Tony Leung and Tang Wei are up for Best Actor and Actress honors, while Rodrigo Prieto‘s cinematography is also under consideration.
In the lead-acting categories, Angelina Jolie is an immediate favorite for her role as grieving Marianne Pearl in A Mighty Heart. Jolie will compete against Sienna Miller (Interview), Parker Posey (Broken English), Ellen Page (Juno) and Tang Wei.
