How to Watch the Livestream of 2024 Film Independent Spirit Awards

The 2024 indie Spirit Awards, which celebrate indie movies, TV shows, and streaming services, return few hours after the 2024 SAG Awards.

Aidy Bryant is the host for the event, which starts on Sunday at 2 p.m. PT from the Santa Monica Pier. The awards ceremony this year will be streamed live on the X (formerly known as Twitter) and Film Independent YouTube channels, as well as the X and IMDb pages on YouTube.

This year’s most recognized TV side were The Last of Us and I’m a Virgo with four nominations each, while American Fiction, May December, and Past Lives led the field with five nominations apiece. The prize categories are gender-neutral for the second year in a row. Film Independent members vote to determine the winners.

The presenters for this year’s event include Quinta Brunson, Emma Corrin, Colman Domingo, Hannah Einbinder, Jim Gaffigan, Noah Galvin, Ronald Gladden, Stephanie Hsu, Anna Kendrick, Jude Law, Greta Lee, Jharrel Jerome, Aja, and Elizabeth Banks. Ashley King, Rashida “Sheedz” Olayiwola, Ben Platt, Lewis Pullman, Emma Roberts, Andrew Scott, Milo Ventimiglia, Jessica Williams, Jimmy O. Yang, Zoe Lister-Jones, Aria Mia Loberti, Trace Lysette, James Marsden, Thomasin McKenzie, Natalie Morales, and Naomi King. Lily Gladstone will act as the honorary chair for the event as well.

Ahead of the ceremony, Bryant spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about what viewers can expect from this year’s ceremony. In her monologue, she teased that she will address the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes starting in 2023, “especially because this event feels more free from the studio system. This is more internal, for those people who are really in it.”

Bryant added, “The strike affected all of us far and wide, so it would be crazy not to mention it. Personally, I was grappling with how long it took for the studios to come to an arrangement and what a squeeze it was putting on our IATSE and Teamster brethren.”

As for why she was so excited to take on the hosting job, the SNL alum said, “These awards, and what they’re about, really do touch my heart. There’s a kind of yuckiness in Hollywood sometimes, and there’s something pure and beautiful about supporting independent film. ”
