Winter’s Bone is still winning awards left and right.
Over the weekend, it bagged the Bronze Horse for Best Film, the FIPRESCI prize, and Best Actress award at the Stockholm International Film Festival (link).
Yesterday, it won two Gotham Independent Film Awards: for Best Feature and Best Acting Ensemble.
It has also been selected by the Sundance Institute for the Film Forward: Advancing Cultural Dialogue initiative (more about that here).
Report from the Gotham Awards:
The Roadside Attractions release was named best feature and also took home the prize for best ensemble performance, which was shared by Jennifer Lawrence, John Hawkes, Dale Dickey, Lauren Sweetser, Garret Dillahunt and Kevin Breznahan.
In the best feature category, Bone prevailed over the ballet drama Black Swan from Fox Searchlight and director Darren Aronofsky; Lisa Cholodenko’s The Kids Are All Right from Focus; marital drama Blue Valentine from the Weinstein Co. and Derek Cianfrance; and vampire remake Let Me In from Overture and Matt Reeves.
“The year started with getting recognition at Sundance, so that was a very intense night. It doesn’t get any easier, though, to win awards,” Granik told the Hollywood Reporter after the ceremony. “Tonight maybe is more charged, because it is about, can we keep making films. The first time you get an award is more innocent.” [Hollywood Reporter]
And I finally added some screencaps from the film.
