This early awards show honors the best of the year’s independent features. Director Penn was not in attendance – Hirsch accepted the award along with producer William Pohlad.
Other big winners at Tuesday night’s show included 20-year-old Juno star Ellen Page (X-Men: The Last Stand, Hard Candy), who took home the Breakthrough Actor award, and Michael Moore’s health care documentary Sicko, which won for Best Documentary Feature.
