Last night’s Independent Spirit Awards had Nick Kroll and John Mulaney as hosts, giving on-point and hilarious commentary on the world of independent film — and the political climate, of course. After their very memorable monologue, which included numerous jabs at Trump, the night belonged to Barry Jenkins and Moonlight.
