Silverman returns to host awards
Film Independent has tapped Sarah Silverman master of ceremonies for the 2007 Spirit Awards, marking the comedienne’s second consecutive hosting gig at the event.
Ceremonies will take place in a tent on the beach in Santa Monica on Feb. 24, the day before the Academy Awards. Ceremony will air live on the Independent Film Channel.
Nominations will be announced Nov. 28 at the Sofitel L.A. hotel. Diana Zahn-Storey is producing the event for the 13th consecutive year.
“I’m pretty sure I’m going to be amazing,” Silverman quipped.
Comedy Central will debut “The Sarah Silverman Program,” a half-hour narrative loosely based on her life, in the spring.
