‘Spotlight’ Wins Big at a Diverse Indie Spirits Ceremony

“Tonight’s nominees are more diverse than the cover of a brochure for a liberal arts college,” the wonderfully oddball comedian Kate McKinnon, of “Saturday Night Live,” told the crowd boozing it up Saturday at the Independent Spirit Awards. She would later kiss the actor Paul Dano through a mouthful (her mouthful) of ham.
