“Golden eagle” this year was awarded for the fifteenth time — a considerable period assumes a certain tradition. In the case of the award of the National Academy of motion picture arts and Sciences itself can be considered a certain paradox in the distribution of awards. On the one hand, the favorites of the balance of the nominees seems to be clear immediately, but the other always remains some space for maneuver and surprise. This year with the favorites it was clear: “the Crew”, “Duelist”, “the Icebreaker” — the main blockbusters of the year, between which and must turn the battle for Russian prizes. However, some confusion in the situation has made the inclusion in the struggle of “Paradise” by Andrei Konchalovsky, who at the time of the announcement of the nominees haven’t even been released. At the same time, no one category received a “Good boy” and even, I’m sorry, “Viking”.
But quite unexpectedly, in a few important categories were marked “Collector” Alexey Krasovsky prizes he, however, never received.
so, the best film of the year by the “Golden eagle” became “Paradise” by Andrei Konchalovsky — a philosophical drama about the Holocaust with Julia Vysotskaya, who received an award for best actress. Getting up on stage for the second time this evening (the first was for directing award), he reminded the audience that on 27 January — the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz by Soviet troops, and hoped that his painting will help this tragedy not be repeated. We recall that just a few days ago “Paradise” was not nominated for “Oscar” in the category “Best foreign language film”. The number of “eagles” in this context looks like the consolation favor, especially considering that he, among other things, the President of the Russian (not to be confused with the National) Academy of motion picture arts, presenting “nick”.
as for the already mentioned blockbusters, they had mainly to be content with wins in the technical categories.
got More “the Crew”, which was awarded the prize for best music (Artem’ev), sound (Alex Samodelka) and installation (Konstantin Larchenko). “The duelist” had to settle for the award-winning stage artist (by Andrey Pankratov) and costume designer (Tatyana Patrahaltsev). In more serious nominations received one prize. Sergey Shakurov received the statuette for the role of the father of the hero of Danila Kozlovsky in the “Crew” (and this is really almost the best acting job in the film), and “the Duelist” for the work of the operator Maxim Osadchy.
the Prize for best actor quite unexpectedly went to Ivan Yankovsky who played the restless Opera singer self-educated in the “Queen of Spades” by Pavel Lungin. This picture somehow got the statuette for best makeup — apparently, academics impressed the old lady’s transformation of Xenia Rappoport. For the female role of the second plan were awarded Elena Yakovlev (“the best day”). Finally, the best screenwriter was recognized Yuri Arabs (“the Monk and the demon”), who complained that in his home town of Kolchugino, the Vladimir region no one knows about his new picture, since the local cinema control relying on special effects, the Armenians. It was, perhaps, the most poignant statement in the entire long ceremony.
but the Most moving was the release of Vasily Borisovich Livanov for the award for contribution to the development of cinema. The actor came in novopolochan order from President Putin, quoted Ranevskaya, and leaving the stage — read a poem by Gennady Shpalikov.
as for the television nominations, there were no surprises. Two awards went to “Climate” (the best series to 10 series and best actor Konstantin Lavronenko), the best series was named “the Quiet don” of Sergey Ursulyak.
And the last. Best foreign film, Russian Academy recognized the “Survivor” Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.
