'Black Swan' Wins Big at Indie Spirit Awards


Natalie Portman


Lead star Natalie Portman and director Darren Aronofsky were acknowledged for their roles while the movie itself was named Best Feature.

"Black Swan" continued to dance all over its competition at Saturday, February 26's 26th Annual Film Independent Spirit Awards after picking up four top honors. Oscar favorite Natalie Portman, whose portrayal of a troubled and dedicated ballet dancer in the film has won her global acclaim, was named Best Actress, while "Black Swan" also picked up Best Feature, Best Director for Darren Aronofsky and Best Cinematography.

James Franco's performance in "127 Hours" made him the surprise winner of the Best Actor prize, beating the seemingly unstoppable Colin Firth, who has swept the board for his role in "The King's Speech" throughout awards season.

Drama "Winter's Bone", which led the nominations with seven nods, only managed to pick up two honors: Best Supporting Male for John Hawkes and Best Supporting Female for Dale Dickey.
