Ever since its limited screenings for professionals and lucky viewers, the new film by Sam Mendes, UK-US co-production 1917 [+leggi anche:

The continuous-shot dash into enemy territory during World War I received the two most important awards it was vying for: Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Director. The lack of nominations in the rest of the categories (besides these two, it was only up for Best Score) and the presence of strong competitors prompted a very heterogeneous list of winners, although not a very European one.
UK’s Taron Egerton was one of the surprise winners of the evening, taking home the Best Actor – Musical or Comedy award for his portrait of Elton John in Dexter Fletcher’s biopic of the music star Rocketman [+leggi anche:

The other acting awards were not too keen on European talent, leaving Antonio Banderas, a frontrunner for his work in Pedro Almodóvar’s Pain and Glory [+leggi anche:

In the Best Foreign-Language Film category, as expected, Bong Joon-ho’s Palme d’Or-winner Parasite took the statuette home, beating European hopefuls Pain and Glory by Pedro Almodóvar, Les Misérables [+leggi anche:
