Paolo Sorrentino’s ‘Youth’ Wins Big At The European Film Awards

Paolo Sorrentino's 'Youth' Wins Big At The European Film Awards

Here, there, and everywhere, awards are being handed out left and right, and the latest shower of honors to the year’s best in the film comes from the European Film Awards. Over the weekend the trophies were handed out, and one movie that hasn’t really been in the conversation stateside came out on top.

Paolo Sorrentino‘s “Youth” won Best Film, Best Director, and Best Actor at the ceremony. That’s a nice trifecta for the picture. And it was a night of double awards with Charlotte Rampling winning Best Actress for “45 Years” in addition to taking home a Lifetime Achievement Award, and Michael Caine adding to his Best Actor win with an Honorary Award.

No real big shocks or upsets as far as I can see, but if you think someone got overlooked, let us know in the comments section. Full list of winners below. [Screen Daily]
