As if that weren’t exciting enough, it also set a new record for the film to win the most Indie Spirit Awards. So just how many awards did Moonlight win, you might ask?

It won a record-setting six Independent Spirit Awards!

Moonlight won Best Feature, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography, the Robert Altman Award for Best Ensemble Cast, and Best Editing.
