SHARE Kristen Bell, Fred Armisen to host Spirit Awards

The 2015 Independent Spirit Awards — often considered the “Indie Oscars” — will be co-hosted by actress Kristen Bell and comedian and actor Fred Armisen. The Feb. 21 event, again being held on the beach in Santa Monica, California, will also air live for the first time on IFC at 4 p.m.

Last year, comedian Patton Oswalt was the sole host for the event, which included the unique concept of delivering the winners’ envelope via a drone.
