Kristin Scott Thomas voted Best European Actress
The English-French actress has won the Best European Actress award for her role in Il y a longtemps que je t'aime (I’ve Loved You So Long) at last night’s European Film Awards ceremony.
Thanks to this award, Kristin Scott Thomas now joins other potential finalists at upcoming high-profile awards ceremonies, such as the Golden Globes, the French Cesar Awards, the BAFTAS, and the Academy Awards.
The film by Philippe Claudel has already met with stunning success on the international stage, with 225,000 admissions registered in the UK, 140,000 admissions in the Netherlands, 85,000 admissions in Spain, and over 230,000 admissions in the USA. This recent award, and the possibility of new accolades, will no doubt boost the film’s international career, which is likely to outshine its fine score in the home market. To date, 850,000 spectators have seen the film around the world, compared to 1 million in France.
Another French production was also honored at the European Films Awards ceremony. La Graine et le mulet (The Secret of the Grain) by Abdellatif Kechiche, which was the big winner at the 2008 Cesar Awards, picked up the FIPRESCI Prize awarded by European film critics.
