Unlike the American Academy’s ceremony held last month — where Jan Komasa’s Corpus Christi [+lire aussi :

The only twist was the first ex aequo verdict in the Best Supporting Actor category, but more because of the baffling way it was presented than anything else. Agata Trzebuchowska (actress known for her performance in Ida [+lire aussi :

That rainy Warsaw evening, as actor Maciej Stuhr, the host of the ceremony, declared, was supposed to be free of tension and political jokes, the common ingredient of recent award galas in Poland. Stuhr referred to writer Olga Tokarczuk’s Nobel Prize acceptance speech, in which she coined the term tender narrator, and said that the 22nd Polish Eagles gala should be nice and tender. Corpus Christi, directed by Jan Komasa, a film which calls for love and acceptance of others, was the apt winner of the night, snagging 11 awards including Best Film as well as the Audience Award. Komasa was announced as Best Director, while Mateusz Pacewicz got two nods for his script (Best Screenplay and Discovery of the Year), thesps Aleksandra Konieczna, Bartosz Bielenia, Eliza Rycembel and Łukasz Simlat also took home an Eagle. Cinematographer Piotr Sobocinski jr. and editor Przemysław Chruścielewski concluded the winning Corpus Christi team.
Not many awards were left for other films. Icarus. The Legend of Mietek Kosz [+lire aussi :

HBO Poland-produced The Pack (season 3) was announced as Best TV Show, while Don’t Tell Anyone by Tomasz Sekielski and Marek Siekielski, about pedophilia in the Polish church, was voted Best Documentary. Legendary Polish actress Maja Komorowska, who worked with the likes of Krzysztof Zanussi and Andrzej Wajda, was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

The most emotional part of the evening was probably the arrival of Ukrainian director Oleh Sentsov on the stage. The Polish Film Academy had been appealing for his release for years and Sentsov gave a poignant speech, thanking the Polish industry for its support, and stressing that the conflict in the Ukraine is not over yet, with many of his friends still detained.
