  • "Take Shelter," starring Michael Shannon, was nominated for five Independent Spirit Awards.

While Little Rock native Jeff Nichols' second film "Take Shelter" didn't win either of the Gotham Awards it was nominated for at Monday night's ceremony, the psychological thriller was nominated for five 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards, tying the black-and-white silent film "The Artist" for the most nominations this year.

"Take Shelter" earned nods for Best Feature, Best Director, Best Male Lead (Michael Shannon), Best Supporting Female (Jessica Chastain) and the Piaget Producers Award (Sophia Lin).

The awards ceremony is scheduled for Feb. 25, and will be aired later that evening on IFC.

The judges for the Independent Spirit Awards consider feature-length films that express a "uniqueness of vision," with "original, provocative subject matter" that were made for $20 million or less. The films also must have either screened for one week in a commercial theater or have been screened at the Los Angeles, New Directors/New Films, New York, Sundance, Telluride, or Toronto film festivals.
