Five Oscars for Berlinale Stars and Films
“We are delighted and warmly congratulate Marion Cotillard, Daniel Day-Lewis and director Stefan Ruzowitzky to their Oscars,” says Festival Director Dieter Kosslick to the presentation of the prestigious trophies Sunday night.
Yesterday, two Academy Awards went to the two-time Bear winner of this year’s Berlin International Film Festival, There Will Be Blood by Paul Thomas Anderson. For his compelling tour de force, lead Daniel Day-Lewis won an Oscar for Best Actor. This oil drama from the USA also received an Oscar for Best Cinematography. One week ago in Berlin, director Paul Thomas Anderson was awarded the Silver Bear for Best Director; and composer Jonny Greenwood, the Silver Bear for Outstanding Artistic Contribution (music).
