Hosts for the 2018 Spirit Awards
Nick Kroll (Big Mouth, Operation Finale,Uncle Drew) and John Mulaney (Kid Gorgeous, ‘Oh, Hello on Broadway’, Big Mouth) are signing on for the second year in a row to co-host the 2018 Spirit Awards.

“The only thing better than having Nick Kroll and John Mulaney host the Spirit Awards is having them host the Spirit Awards twice,” said Film Independent President Josh Welsh. “They did such an amazing job last year and we’re thrilled to have them back in 2018.”
