The European Film Awards gave the great Kristin Scott Thomas their best actress honor today for her performance in I’ve Loved You So Long, and so all is well and right with the world. Matteo Garrone’s Gomorrah won big also. The 21st annual ceremony was held in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Garrone’s film, which will be honored at a dinner party at the Plaza hotel tomorrow night, won best film, best director (i.e., Garrone) and best actor (i.e., Toni Sevillo, who was also honored for his acting in Il Divo ).
Gomorra‘s six writers — Maurizio Braucci, Ugo Chiti, Gianni di Gregorio, Massimo Gaudioso, Garrone and Saviano — shared the best screenwriter award. And Marco Onorato was selected best cinematographer for his work on Gomorra.
Honorary awards were presented to British actress Judi Dench and the founders of the Dogma film movement, Soren Kragh-Jacobsen, Kristian Levring, Lars von Trier and Thomas Vinterberg of Denmark.
