Lulu Wang's family drama “The Farewell” is the big winner at the Film Independent Spirit Awards.
Though he was overlooked by the Oscars, Adam Sandler took best male actor for his performance in the Safdie brothers' “Uncut Gems.”
“Uncut Gems” led all films with three awards, including best director for Josh and Benny Safdie.
Best performance by a female actor went to the Oscar favorite Renee Zellweger.
