The nominations for the 2017 Independent Spirit Awards were announced on Tuesday afternoon, and Barry Jenkins' Moonlight and Andrea Arnold's American Honey scored big. The two films racked up a leading six nominations at the award ceremony. 

Moonlight, which tells the coming-of-age story of a young man in Miami during the War on Drugs, didn't score any nominations for acting, but did receive a number of honors for directing, casting, and screenplay writing. The film was also selected to receive the Robert Altman Award, which is given to the film's directors and ensemble cast. Moonlight originally premiered at the Telluride Film Festival in Sept. 2016, grossing $6 million. The movie's stars, including Luke Cage's Mahershala Ali, Trevante Rhodes, and Janelle Monae, all received rave reviews for their performances. 

American Honey tells the the coming-of-age story of a troubled teen growing up in the American Midwest. Shia LaBeouf and Magic Mike star Riley Keough first brought the film to life at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, and it was later given a theatrical debut in the United States in Sept. 2016. LaBeouf and Keough earned nominations for best supporting roles in the film. 

Other notable nominations include Ava DuVernay's highly acclaimed and controversial film 13th, which was put in the running for Best Documentary alongside ESPN's popular 30 for 30 series entry O.J.: Made in America. Barry, the biographical film that chronicles President Obama's college experience at Columbia University was also nominated for an award for Best First Screenplay thanks to Adam Mansbach's handy work. Netflix recently released the official trailer for the film after announcing that the streaming service would be picking it up. 

The 32nd Independent Spirit Awards will air the ceremony live on IFC on Saturday, Feb. 25 at 5 p.m. ET. Here's the complete list of nominations.
