EXCLUSIVE: Before the big Oscar show takes place on Sunday, as the tradition goes, the Film Independent Spirit Awards will honor their nominees and winners the night before, with festivities set to get underway on Saturday evening. It is shaping up to another memorable night, with the stars lining up to celebrate the best in independent film over the past year. Seth Rogen will host what is sure to an enjoyable evening, and to help hand out the awards, a lineup of starry names are confirmed to appear.

Past nominees Ethan Hawke (screenplay for "Before Sunset"), Ben Kingsley ("House Of Sand And Fog"), Terrence Howard ("Hustle & Flow," "The Best Man"), Anthony Mackie ("The Hurt Locker," "Brother To Brother"), Giovanni Ribisi ("The Gift"), Patricia Clarkson ("Pieces Of April," "High Art") and Laura Dern ("Blue Velvet," "Smooth Talk" and in 2007 honored with an award for her collaborative work with David Lynch) will be presenting awards to this year's winners tomorrow evening. Joining them to present will also be Lucy Liu and Benjamin Bratt.

But that's not all. The Spirit Awards will also be boasting some pretty solid musical guests, as rockers My Morning Jacket and Canadian hip hop star K'Naan are slated to perform.

All told, it should be a great night. You can tune in to the Film Independent Spirit Awards tomorrow night at 10 PM on IFC.
