Patton Oswalt will host the 2014 Spirit Awards 

Nominations for the 2014 Independent Spirit Awards will be announced on November 26, and now the show has announced that comedian, actor, and all-around Internet hero Patton Oswalt will host the 29th annual awards ceremony on March 1, the day before the Academy Awards, in Santa Monica. Oswalt is familiar with the awards, having starred in Big Fan, a 2009 Cassavetes Award nominee (given to films with a budget of less than $500,000). Considering the Spirit Awards are for independent films, his monologue probably won’t be an official pitch of his Parks & Recreation filibuster to J.J. Abrams for inclusion in the new Star Wars, but there’s still a chance.
