Andy Samberg Channels 'Breakfast Club' in Plea to Actors at Spirit Awards 2018!

Andy Samberg brings the fun to the 2018 Independent Spirit Awards!

The 39-year-old SNL alum hit the stage on Saturday afternoon (March 3) dressed as John Bender from The Breakfast Club to beg the actors in attendance not to sell out to the magic of Hollywood.

“Don’t you forget about us, Saoirse don’t leave, don’t put your face upon a bus,” Andy sang to the tune of “Don’t You Forget about Me.” “Timothée Chalamet, if you stay indie, we’ll pronounce it the pretentious way. Jordan and Kumail don’t go and fall for the seductive dancin’ of the studios.”

Andy went on to call out a couple of the actors who traded independent movies for a more glamorous life in Hollywood.

“Back away, Avengers,” Andy sang. “You took ScarJo, you took Favreau — Just ask Robert, can’t live Twilight down down down.”

Frances McDormand Wears Pajamas & Slippers to Accept Her Spirit Award!

Frances McDormand appears on stage to accept her award at the 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday afternoon (March 3) in Santa Monica, Calif.

The actress won the award for Best Female Lead for her work in the movie Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Frances opened up about the “beach party” she remembers the Spirit Awards as years ago. She then imagined what it could be like today if the show really was a beach party that you could attend in pajamas and slippers, the exact outfit she happened to be wearing.

“And then, just think how much money we would have left over to make independent films,” Frances said to conclude her speech.

Frances is expected to take home the Oscar tomorrow night as well!

“I’m trying to really savor this moment. I don’t know if this thing’s ever really going to happen again,” he said. “I hope it doesn’t sound cheesy when I say it, but I have a lot of faith. I have a lot of faith in this industry. I have a lot of faith in our country. I have faith because of Greta Gerwig and Luca Guadagnino and Josh Safdie and Jordan Peele and Daniel Kaluuya and filmmakers that aren’t here. … We’ve got a whole new wave. We’re going to be good. … Thank God we have the Dee Reeses and everybody.”

Timothee is nominated for Best Actor at the Oscars tomorrow!

FYI: Timothee is wearing an Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh outfit.
