The 2014 Sundance Film Festival came to a close over the weekend with the announcement of the big awards, including wins for movies involving such talented folks as Angelina Jolie, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, and Michael Cera.
Married TV stars Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally hosted the awards ceremony in Park City, Utah, on January 25, according to Entertainment Weekly. The big winner was Whiplash, a drama about a young jazz drummer, which won both the U.S. Grand Jury and Audience Dramatic prizes.
The Screenwriting Award went to The Skeleton Twins, a drama starring Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader as two estranged twins who cheat death on the same day and then decide to reconnect. With a talented cast like that, we can't wait to see it!
Another winning movie starring a familiar face is Gregory Go Boom, which landed the Jury Prize for best fictional short film. The movie stars Arrested Development's Michael Cera as a paraplegic man who finally decides to leave his home.
And Difret, a documentary about Ethiopia that is produced by Angelina Jolie, won the Audience Award in the World Dramatic Competition. Click here to see the complete list of winners.
Congrats to all the winners! We can't wait for them to hit theaters in the near future.
