Venice 2012 Winners

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? Maybe this complete list of winners will help us with the answers, check it out: Golden Lion – Best Picture Pieta, Kim-Ki Duk Silver Lion – Best Director Paul Thomas Anderson – The Master Volpi Cup – Best Actor Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman – The Master Volpi Cup – Best Actress Hadas Yaron – Fill The Void Special Jury Award Ulrich Seidl – Paradise: Faith Mastroianni Award – Best Young Actor Fabrizio Falcone – “Dormant Beauty,” “It Was The Son” Best Screenplay Olivier Assayas – Something In The Air Technical Achievement Daniele Cipri – Il Stato E Figlio Luigi De Laurentiis Award – Best First Feature Kuf: Mold, Ali Aydin Orrizonti: Best Feature Three Sisters, Wang Bing Orrizonti: Jury Prize Tango Libre, Frederic Fonteyne FIPRESCI Award (Competition) The Master, Paul Thomas Anderson FIPRESCI Award (Orizzonti/Critics’ Week) The Interval, Leonardo Di Constanzo SIGNIS Award To the Wonder, Terrence Malick SIGNIS Award (Special Mention) Fill the Void, Rama Burshtein Audience Award (Critics’ Week) Eat Sleep Die, Gabriela Pilcher Label Europa Cinemas Award Crawl, Herve Lasgouttes Leoncino d’Oro Agiscuola Award Pieta, Kim Ki-duk Leoncino d’Oro Agiscuola Award (Cinema for UNICEF mention) It Was the Son, Daniele Cipri Pasinetti Award The Interval, Leonardo Di Constanzo Pasinetti Award (Documentary) The Human Cargo, Daniele Vicari Pasinetti Award (Best Actor) Valerio Mastandrea, Gli Equilibristi Pasinetti Award (Special) Clarisse, Liliana Cavani Brian Award Dormant Beauty, Marco Bellocchio Queer Lion Award The Weight, Jeon Kyu-Hwan Arca CinemaGiovani Award (Best Film of Venezia 69) The Fifth Season, Peter Brosens and Jessica Woodworth Arca CinemaGiovani Award (Best Italian Film) The Ideal City, Luigi Lo Casco Biografilm Lancia Award The Human Cargo, Daniele Vicari; “Bad 25,” Spike Lee CICT-UNESCO Enrico Fulchignoni Award The Interval, Leonardo Di Costanzo CICAE Award Wadjda, Haifaa Al Mansour CinemaAvvenire Award (Best Film of Venezia 69) Paradise: Faith, Ulrich Seidl CinemAvvenire Award (Diversity) “Wadjda,” Haifaa Al Mansour FEDIC Award The Interval, Leonardo Di Costanzo FEDIC Award (Special Mention) Bellas Mariposas, Salvatore Mereu Mimmo Rotella Foundation Award Something in the Air, Olivier Assayas Future Film Festival Digital Award Bad 25, Spike Lee Future Film Festival Digital Award (Special Mention) Spring Breakers, Harmony Korine P.
