Santa Monica was a little hotter tonight (March 1) as the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards brought stars like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to town.

Showing off their amazing chemistry, the “12 Years a Slave” star and the "Salt" beauty enjoyed their time with fellow industry pals as they say inside the big tent on Santa Monica Beach.

One day ahead of the Oscars, the 2014 Spirit Awards includes a host of artists who don’t usually get their due recognition.

The Best Director nominees are Alexander Payne (Nebraska), Shane Carruth (Upstream Color), J.C. Chandor (All is Lost), Steve McQueen (12 Years a Slave) and Jeff Nichols (Mud).
