Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman in The Master

Surprise, surprise! We have Venice Film Festival winners and as usual, we’re here to share the complete list of winners with you!

Now, about that surprise part, here’s the strangest thing in the world of festivals so far. We all knew that Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master was one strong contender for the festival’s top prize, so I guess we were (and still are) all shocked when the jury decided to give Golden Lion to Kim Ki-Duk and his Pieta.

And all that because, well…apparently Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix were just too good in The Master and they both received that acting award a.k.a. Volpi Cup.

That leads us to Festival’s new rule where one film can not win more than two major awards, which basically means only one thing – Thomas Anderson goes home with the Silver Lion for best director.

Not bad, but still… makes us wonder – what the hell just happened out there?
