More winners at their site which is not yet updated, but probably will be soon.

I am no Italian movie expert, but I do believe La Sconosciuta is a great movie and I am glad is getting many honors; do not understand Elio Germano winning … but I do believe than in the future he will be a good actor.

By sheer coincidence, last night I was able to see the awards ceremony on TV, which to my eyes was very informal, sloppy and very different to Cannes or the Academy Awards. The best part was being able to see Pedro Almodovar talking very fast Italian. Go figure.
