Independent Spirit Awards 2012: Winners List (PHOTOS)

Film Independent gave out its Spirit Awards for the 27th time on Saturday afternoon in Santa Monica, Calif. While the telecast of the ceremony -- hosted by a ribald Seth Rogen -- won't happen until 10 p.m. EST on IFC (tape delaying an awards ceremony in the age of Twitter = SMART!), Moviefone is happy to pass along the winners. As you may have guessed, "The Artist" found a way to dominate, with Michelle Williams, Christopher Plummer, Shailene Woodley and "Margin Call" taking home hardware as well. Check out the full list of Spirit Award honorees below.
