I realize this will put a dark cloud over Kris Tapley’s world and I’m not entirely sure how industry-significant this may be in a heavy-duty sense…it is signficant in and of itself, of course, and good for the good guys and all that…but last night the British Independent Film Awards (sort of the London Spirits…right?) gave Fernando Meirelles’ The Constant Gardender its Best Film prize, plus a Best Actor and Best Actress award for the film’s two stars, Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz. Weisz and Meirelles weren’t in London to accept as they’re here in Los Angeles to push Gardener with journos and keep it as front-and- center as they can with all the awards-season crap heating up right now.
