The show will be hosted by Patton Oswalt on March 1
Anna Kendrick, Jon Hamm and Paul Dano have been booked as presenters at the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards, Film Independent revealed exclusively to TheWrap on Tuesday.
They will join previously announced presenters that include Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Andy Samberg, Jason Bateman, Will Forte, Octavia Spencer, Greta Gerwig and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The show will take place on Saturday, March 1 and will be hosted by Patton Oswalt.
Kendrick is a past Spirit Award nominee for “Rocket Science” (best supporting actress) and “Camp” (best debut performance), and an Oscar nominee for “Up in the Air.” Last year she appeared in Joe Swanberg’s “Drinking Buddies.”
Hamm is best known as Don Draper on “Mad Men,” but he appeared in independent films including “Howl,” “Friends With Kids” and last year’s live-action/animation hybrid “The Congress.”
Dano won the Spirit Award for his debut performance in “L.I.E.” in 2001, and was also nominated for “Little Miss Sunshine.” Last year he appeared in both “12 Years a Slave” and in “Prisoners.”
This is the 29th year for the Spirit Awards, which are produced by the nonprofit Film Independent. The ceremony will take place in its traditional place and time: a tent on the beach in Santa Monica, the afternoon before the Academy Awards.
IFC will broadcast the show that same night at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
UPDATE: The day after this story was published, a representative for Film Independent, who had confirmed to TheWrap that Oscar Isaac was booked on the show, said that Isaac was no longer a presenter. The story has been changed to reflect that fact.
