Acclaimed funny-men Nick Kroll and John Mulaney return to host the 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards. The best and brightest of the film industry will gather to honor and celebrate this year’s top indie contenders. Stay tuned for a night of off-the-cuff moments, celebrity guests and a slew of laughs and jokes from the hosts and your favorite celebrities. You won’t want to miss it!
“The only thing better than having Nick Kroll and John Mulaney host the Spirit Awards is having them host the Spirit Awards twice,” said Film Independent President Josh Welsh. “They did such an amazing job last year and we’re thrilled to have them back in 2018.” “From the minute Nick and John opened last year’s show, which went instantly viral, we knew we wanted them back to host this year,” said Jennifer Caserta, President, IFC. “These two talented multi-hyphenates knocked it out of the park last year and we can’t wait to see what they have planned for this year.”
This year marks the 33rd edition of the awards show that celebrates the best of independent film. Past Spirit Awards hosts have included Kate McKinnon and Kumail Nanjiani, Fred Armisen and Kristen Bell, Patton Oswalt, Andy Samberg, Joel McHale, Sarah Silverman, Samuel L. Jackson, Eddie Izzard, Queen Latifah and John Waters to name a few. The Spirit Awards are the primary fundraiser for Film Independent’s year-round programs, which cultivate the careers of emerging filmmakers and promote diversity in the industry.
