Watts lights up Spirit nods

Thesp to serve as honorary chair at indie kudos

Naomi Watts will serve as honorary chair for the 2006 Independent Spirit Awards, to be held March 4 in Santa Monica.

Thesp, who will host the annual nominee reception on March 2, was chosen for her commitment to indie film, according to Film Independent exec director Dawn Hudson said.

Watts’ indie credits include “21 Grams,” “Mulholland Drive” and “We Don’t Live Here Anymore.”

Most recently, she starred in Peter Jackson’s studio remake of “King Kong.” She’ll next be seen opposite Edward Norton in Warner Independent Pictures’ “The Painted Veil” from director John Curran.

Film Independent administers the Spirit Awards. This year’s ceremony will air live on IFC, while an edited version will be rebroadcast later the same evening on AMC.

Celebrity presenters include Terrence Howard, Laura Linney, Jeremy Piven and Rachel Weisz. Sarah Silverman will host.
