It was a big night in Hollywood for a movie that, frankly, didn't really need a big night to confirm its dominance of the 2022/23 awards season. But this one was bigger than most: Everything Everywhere All at Once swept the 2022 Spirit Awards, not only winning in all categories where it was nominated, but setting a new record for the most wins for any movie at these awards, with seven. In the wake of this behemoth performance, no other movie could claim more than one prize, and no other movie could claim a top category win either. Other Best Feature nominees Tar and Women Talking had to make do with one each, while others like Bones and All and Our Father, the Devil had to make do with none. You can remind yourself of Film Independent's nominations for these awards at this link, and check out all the winners' details below.
