‘The King’s Speech’ & ‘Melancholia’ Win Big At The European Film Awards

- Advertisement -

The European Film Awards winners have little influence if none on the award ceremonies stateside, but it’s still interesting to note the differences between the European picks and those by the Americans. Tonight the award ceremony presented their winners and Melancholia tied Tom Hooper’s The King’s Speech as the big winners, each taking three awards. I’m not sure why The King’s Speech qualifies as a 2011 contender, considering it was released in the UK before it ever hit North American shores in 2010, but the same can be asked about Susanne Bier’s In A Better World.

Below is the complete list of winners.
