Jamie Lee Curtis led the arrivals at the 38th Annual Film Independent Spirit Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday.
The 64-year-old Halloween Ends star — who took an iconic selfie with Tom Cruise recently — looked chic in a black printed suit over a black T-shirt with heels on the red carpet.
Curtis was nominated for Best Supporting Performance for her role in Everything Everywhere All at Once.
The True Lies star also received her first Oscar nomination for the same performance. The Oscars will air next weekend on March 12.
The organization said that the Film Independent Spirit Awards will now feature gender-neutral film and television acting categories and raise its budget cap to $30 million.
Michelle Yeoh left SPEECHLESS after Lead Performance at Spirit Awards
‘We’re thrilled to join the other festivals and award shows that are already moving to celebrate great acting without reference to gender,’ Josh Welsh, Film Independent’s president, said in August.
‘We´re also happy to welcome non-binary performers into the Spirit Awards without forcing them to choose to identify as male or female.’
It joins several prominent awards organizations that have switched to non-gendered awards, including The Grammys, The Gotham Awards, and the MTV Movie & TV Awards.
The categories will now be ‘best lead performance’ and ‘best supporting performance.
Raising the eligibility cap from $22.5 million to $30 million for film production is intended to acknowledge the rising costs of making films.
‘It has been a long time since we substantially increased the budget limit for eligibility,’ Welsh said.
‘This new cap allows us to continue to celebrate the same breadth of work that we have in the past.’
This year, the awards show will only be available to view via streaming, and will not air live on IFC, a first since 1997, reported Variety.
Instead, fans and audiences can easily tune in to watch the beachside festivities on IMDB’s YouTube Channel and the Film Independent’s YouTube and Twitter pages.
Another honor given out during the annual ceremony is the John Cassavetes Award, presented to a creative team for a film budgeted at less than $1,000,000. The nominees include The African Desperate, The Cathedral, Holy Emy, A Love Song, and Something In The Dirt.
