Film Honorees Named at the 12th Satellite Awards
Finally picking up the best out of a slew of lauded titles and names, the International Press Academy (IPA) listed out on Sunday evening (Dec. 16) recipients of this year's Satellite Awards, giving away most honors to teen pregnancy drama "Juno."
The Fox Searchlight release gloriously scooped up three major kudos in total, notably that of the Best Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical. Two others went to Ellen Page as the Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical and Diablo Cody as the recipient of best original screenplay.
In drama slot, critics' favorite "No Country for Old Men" again scored big by snatching two honors of best picture and best director for brothers Ethan and Joel Coen. The crime drama thriller, however, failed to land male lead Josh Brolin that of best actor, which was bestowed upon Viggo Mortensen of "Eastern Promises." Same defeat was also faced by Brolin's co-star Javier Bardem as IPA surprisingly granted the best supporting actor title to both Tom Wilkinson ("Michael Clayton") and Casey Affleck ("The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford").
Other multiple winner was period drama "Elizabeth: The Golden Age" that successfully garnered trophies in Best Costume Design as well as Art Direction and Production Design. Meanwhile, well-known titles like "Lust, Caution", "Ratatouille", and "Sicko" each took one prize for being the best foreign-language picture, animated feature, and documentary, respectively.
