The movie 'Get Out' has been named best film at the Film Independent Spirit Awards - which has predicted the best picture winner at the Oscars four years running.

'Moonlight' was seen as an outsider when it picked up the same award at the 2017 event before winning the Oscar.

Jordan Peele was named best director, for what is his feature film debut, at the beachside event in Los Angeles.

The Spirit Awards honour low-budget films and are seen as the precursor to the Academy Awards on Sunday(March 03).

Asked about the possibility of black horror film Get Out repeating the success of Moonlight in 2017 - and Spotlight and Birdman the previous years - Peele simply said: "It's Saturday. Tomorrow's tomorrow."

He is the first black filmmaker to be nominated for best picture, best director and best screenwriting.

Daniel Kaluuya, Jordan Peele and Allison Williams with the Best Feature Award for Get Out
