The 2010 European Film Award Winners were announced this weekend, and the big takeaway is that the European Film Academy really liked The Ghost Writer.  The Roman Polanski-directed feature was warmly received on this side of the Atlantic, but I’d be shocked if it swarms the Oscars with quite the ferocity it did the EFAs. Six awards in total, including best film, director (Polanski), actor (Ewan McGregor), screenwriter (Polanski and Robert Harris), production designer (Albrecht Konrad), and composer (Alexandre Desplat).

The ceremony wasn’t entirely Ghost-written, though: Lourdes, The Illusionist, Carlos, and Lebanon were among the other winners.  Hit the jump for the full list.

    European critics love pedophiles making movies, you know? Maybe they’re satisficing some hidden fantasy…

      separate the artist from the art.

    amazing film. this is probably the most underrated film of the year along with The American.

    it’s my introduction to Polanski(i’ve seen Chinatown before, and while a thought it was good, i wasn’t blown away by it), and i just sat there completely blown away with the writing and the directing, and the use of music. he’s got this unique way of crafting a thriller where he puts humor to it. i just love it. it lead me to watch Rosemary’s Baby which i completely loved. again, it has a humor to it, but also, it shows again his mastery of a tension and suspense. truly he is great.
