2011 Film Independent Spirit Awards Nominees Fully Unveiled

Hate to say this but Greenberg and Winter's Bone were both overrated.

It's too bad Greenberg got more nominations than Never Let Me Go. I liked both of them, but Never Let Me Go deserves more recognition.

Doesn't Animal Kingdom qualify or was it overlooked.
