Subject: Spotlight triumphs at Spirit Awards

Written By: Philip Eno on 02/28/16 at 4:45 am

Spotlight was the big winner at the Independent Spirit Awards, held one day ahead of the Oscars ceremony in Los Angeles.
Brit Idris Elba won best supporting actor for his role playing a warlord in Beasts of No Nation.
His young co-star Abraham Attah went on to win the best actor award for his first ever role.
Spotlight picked up the best film, director, screenplay and a special recognition for its ensemble cast.
The film is based on the Boston Globe newspapers investigation into child abuse by priests in the city, which became a scandal that was felt around the world.
After collecting the award for best film, director Tom McCarthy said the church still had a long way to go to address the fallout from the abuse for its survivors.
"We have yet to see action. There have been a lot of words but there needs to be action," he said at the award ceremony in Santa Monica.
