WINTER'S BONE wins big at 17th Annual Chlotrudis Awards ceremony

While Debra Granik's WINTER'S BONE was a bridesmaid at the Academy Awards, it was the big winner last night at the 17th Annual Chlotrudis Awards. With a 50% success rate, WINTER'S BONE picked up four Trudies out of its eight nominations including the top prizes, Best Movie and Best Director as well as Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Cinematography.  It's the first time the same film took the top two prizes since Michael Haneke's CACHE did the trick at the 13th Awards, and the first woman to take the Best Director prize since Sofia Coppola scored with LOST IN TRANSLATION back at the 10th annual Awards Ceremony. (She took Best Movie that year as well.)  Joon-ho Bong's MOTHER took two awards, Best Original Screenplay, and in perhaps the biggest upset, Best Actress for Hye-ja Kim. | Read more »
