The 2012 Spirit Awards just got even more awesome. Film Independent, the non-profit arts organization that produces the Spirit Awards and the Los Angeles Film Festival, just announced that Seth Rogen will serve as host for the 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards.
That’s right, the 27th annual awards ceremony will be hosted by Seth Rogen, the star of “Knocked Up,” “Pineapple Express,” “Superbad,” and, of course, “Freaks and Geeks” (by the way, we’re airing back-to-back episodes on Sunday). Rogen is taking over the microphone and hosting duties from Joel McHale who hosted last year’s awards. This year, the Spirit Awards will be held as a daytime luncheon in a tent on the beach in Santa Monica on Saturday, February 25, and the premiere broadcast will air later that evening at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on IFC.
Tables and tickets to attend the Spirit Awards are first made available to Film Independent’s year-round supporters and Arts Circle members. To inquire about tables or tickets, please contact the Development Department at 310.432.1253.
