Pawel Pawlikowski’s ‘Ida’ Wins Big At European Film Awards

Pawel Pawlikowski’s 'Ida' Wins Big At European Film Awards

Good morning, it’s mid-December, and we even more awards for you. Over the weekend, the European Film Awards were handed out, and while the results usually have pretty much zero bearing on what will happen at Oscar in a couple of months time, the big winners just happens to be a movie that’s in the race for Best Foreign Film as well.

Poland’s Oscar entry, Pawel Pawlikowski’s “Ida,” took home the major prizes — Best European Film, Best European Director, Best European Screenwriter, Best European Cinematographer, and the People’s Choice Award — in a near sweep of the European Film Awards, with Agata Trzebuchowska missing out on Best European Actress to Marion Cotillard for “Two Days, One Night.” Other wins of note include Timothy Spall for Best European Actor for his work in “Mr. Turner,” and Steve McQueen honored with a World Cinema award.

Agnes Varda used the occasion of her Lifetime Achievement award to call for more women to be recognized. “What I have noticed is that it is very sweet to receive this award but when I see the nominees here, I feel there are not enough women,” she said in her speech. “I think more women should be included. I know a lot of very good female directors and women editors and I would like them be more represented and helped by the European film academy.”

Check out the full list of winners below. [The Independent/The Guardian]
