    While it has pretty much zero influence on the awards season stateside, the European Film Awards, which are essentially the Euro version of the Oscars, presented their winners tonight and it looks like Lars Von Trier's brief moment as a pariah is over.

    Interview: Susanne Bier Bemoans Violent Society And Modern Parenting For 'In A Better World'

    In one unattainable and colossally perfect universe, "Dogtooth" won the best Foreign Oscar statue.

    International Panel, Iñárritu, Bier, Guadagnino & More Discuss Truth And Nationality In Filmmaking

    Foreign Oscar Nominees Talk Their Process And How They Avoid The (Melo)drama We recently had the opportunity to sit in on a panel at the American Cinematheque with some of the best foreign film nominees at last month's Golden Globes (and 2 that have gone on to become Oscar nominees): Luca Guadagnino, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Susanne Bier and Aleksei Uchitel (Radu Mihaileanu, director of "The Concert" was still on a plane coming in from France). Moderating the panel was Screen International Editor, Mike Goodridge, who led a fascinating discussion that in the end, came to about 2 hours. While we haven't recreated every word for you here, ...
