31st European Film Awards Winners

Last Saturday, December 15, the European Film Academy had their ceremony in Seville, Spain where they announced current year's award winners.  Was able to watch it live on TV and was lazy enough to wait until today, when there are too-many industry news, to write post even do I'm glad the BIG winner of the night was none other than Pawel Pawlikowski visually stunning with awesome music (love jazz) Cold War.

Will share that the most emotional and exciting moment in the ceremony was undoubtedly the acceptance speech by Carmen Maura that brought tears to my eyes and I wasn't the only one as Pawel Pawlikoski admitted during one of his acceptance speeches, he was also with tears in his eyes plus all the anonymous people in the public when camera panned.  The rest of the show was unsurprising and at times a bit boring. Sigh.

So a few days later here are the winners.
