The Spirit Awards are intended to celebrate the independent and alternative movies released in the last year.

As was expected, Donald Trump received a lot of criticism for his controversial policies including his recent roll back of protections for transgender students.

"President Trump rescinded rights for transgender children to use their bathroom of choice this week.

"Because transgender children in public schools have had it too good for too long."

It wasn't all politics, many of the actors and filmakers in the audience took heat from Kroll and Mulaney also.
