While it has pretty much no bearing on the Oscars, winning a few key categories at the European Film Awards does serve to raise the profile of some movies that are in contention. Now, we can certainly bet that more Academy voters will be popping in their screeners of "The Great Beauty."

The Great Beauty

While it has pretty much no bearing on the Oscars, winning a few key categories at the European Film Awards does serve to raise the profile of some movies that are in contention. Now, we can certainly bet that more Academy voters will be popping in their screeners of "The Great Beauty."

Paolo Sorrentino's dreamlike Italian drama has won Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor (Toni Servillo) and Best Editor at the European Film Awards, handed out this evening in Berlin. Other big winners of note include "The Act Of Killing" in the documentary category, as well as Ari Folman's "The Congress" for Best Animated Film. The Matthias Schoenaerts-starring "Death Of A Shadow" won in the short category, while Veerle Baetans (one of our Breakthrough Performances Of 2013) took Best Actress for her turn in Belgium's Oscar contending "Broken Circle Breakdown."
