The film and television winners for the 2024 Film Independent Spirit Awards were handed out live on Sunday night. Continuing a long-standing tradition, the 39th annual ceremony, which honors and celebrates independent filmmakers and breakout TV shows, took place at the Santa Monica Pier in Santa Monica, California, and was hosted by Saturday Night Live alum Aidy Bryant.

This year, American Fiction, May December and Past Lives led the film nominations with five nods each. The Holdovers and Passages followed closely behind with four apiece. Ultimately, American Fiction and Past Lives won big, each securing several wins throughout the night. 

In television, Beef was triumphant in two categories: Best New Scripted Series and Best Lead Performance in a New Scripted Series for star Ali Wong

Some winners were announced ahead of the show, with Kelly Reichardt’s Showing Up receiving the Robert Altman Award — which is given to a film’s director, casting director, and ensemble cast. On the TV side, Jury Duty was named the Best Ensemble Cast in a New Scripted Series.
