Kate Winslet Grabbed Best European Actress Award
Kate Winslet is definitely (and should be!) proud right now.
The British actress has won the Best European Actress award for her role as former concentration camp guard Hanna Schmitz in The Reader, the same role which awarded her an Oscar in February.
34-year-old Winslet won the award late on Saturday, along with other award recipients, such as Tahar Rahim who picked up Best Actor award for his role in Un Prophete (A Prophet). Slumdog Millionaire won the People’s Choice Award for Best European Film, while Das Weisse Band (The White Ribbon) picked up the prize for best European film.
Other award winners at the European Film Academy’s annual awards which held this year in Bochum, Germany, is Austrian Michael Haneke, who picked up Best Director and Best Screenwriter for Das Weisse Band, a movie that also won the coveted Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes film festival. Meanwhile, the lifetime achievement award was awarded to Britain’s Ken Loach.
Well done, Kate, and congrats to all winners!
