Independent Spirit Awards Predict Oscar Winners (VIDEO)

All the Rage 16

michelle williamsTonight is the big night! Billy is back hosting the Oscars and all of the Best Picture nominees are killer. But yesterday we saw, what many are calling, an early predictor to the Academy Awards ... the Independent Spirit Awards.

This awards ceremony, that aired on IFC, goes pretty far under the radar because the films are, well, independent low budget and "artsy." Most of the nominations go to lesser known films and actors, actors that likely won't even be walking the red carpet tonight -- and films that most of us will never see. However, the Descendants and The Artist went head to head for Best Feature Film and Best Male Lead yesterday -- and it seems completely possible that the winner from last night will take the prize tonight! Can you guess who won?

The Artist -- in both categories. And not only did it take home Best Feature Film and Best Male Lead, but it walked away with two other Spirit Awards as well!

And if yesterday was an accurate indicator of winners for the Oscars then you will see Michelle Williams and Christopher Plummer on stage tonight. And not to worry, The Descendants didn't walk away empty handed, but you know, everyone wants to win the biggest prize ... and those went to The Artist.

Have you seen The Artist? Is it worth all of the hype?
