Jennifer Lawrence Spirit Awards

Jennifer’s name is buzzing around Hollywood on Nov. 27 as she’s the favorite to win Best Female Lead at the 2013 Independent Spirit Awards for her performance in ‘Silver Linings Playbook.’ Keep reading for all the spirited details!

Jennifer Lawrence is the toast of the town as the 2013 Independent Spirit Awards announced on November 27 its nominees and Jen, along with her Silver Linings Playbook co-star Bradley Copper, are both up for acting awards!

While Jen is the favorite to win in her category, her film and Moonrise Kingdom are leading all hopefuls with five nods apiece.

It’s basically a clean sweep as Silver Linings amazingly snatched nods in all five major categories: Best Feature, Best Male Lead (Bradley), Best Female Lead (Jennifer), Best Director (David O. Russell) and Best Screenplay.

The independent film will compete for Best Feature against Moonrise Kingdom, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Bernie and Keep the Lights On.

The nomination list also included some of Hollywood’s big name actors and actresses: Rashida Jones, along with co-writer Will McCormack, each earned screenplay nods for Celeste and Jesse Forever; Helen Hunt is in the competition and received a nod for Best Supporting Female for her work in The Sessions; and Bruce Willis joins in the race with a Best Supporting Male nod for his on screen work in Moonrise Kingdom.

The Independent Spirit Awards, which will air Saturday, February 23 on IFC at 10pm ET/PT, are more or less considered to be a much hipper, low-key awards show compared to the Oscars.

Chime in, HollywoodLifers. Who are your favorites to win?
