, The Last Station
and (500) Days Of Summer
lead the Best Film nominations for the 25th Independent Spirit Awards
and Sin Nombre
also made the list, which was announced in Los Angeles on Tuesday morning.
The Last Station, which chronicles the final days of Russian author Leo Tolstoy, and the acclaimed Precious scored the most nominations with five each. Early Oscar favorite The Hurt Locker
missed out on a nomination because it was selected last year.
To be eligible for an Independent Spirit nod, all films must have been made for less than $20 million. Films must have either screened at a major film festival including Sundance, Toronto or Film Independent's own Los Angeles Film Festival or had a one-week engagement at a commercial theater.
The awards will be handed out in Los Angeles on March 5th.
