IFC hosts post-Spirit Awards bash

John Waters, Rainn Wilson attend event

At the IFC post-Spirits bash Saturday guests crowded into Santa Monica’s Shutters on the Beach and discussed Mickey Rourke’s acceptance speech and Steve Coogan’s emceeing along with the inevitable schmoozing.

Rainn Wilson, last year’s host, gave his verdict: “Coogan learned from a master. He sucked from the teet of a master, literally — we spent yesterday evening together.”

Both he and John Waters, veteran host for so many years, were glad to be able to kick back and watch someone else do it. “Although,” Waters added, “everybody likes a job these days, at least you got paid.”

Waters refused to discuss whether his picks won. “I never tell. I voted everywhere; I voted Oscars, Writers Guild, Directors Guild, Screen Actors Guild, Independent Spirit Awards, GLAAD Awards and the Razzies.”
