International Awards – The Danish Film Awards (Roberts) and British Film Awards 2010

On Sunday, the Film Academy of Denmark presented the Danish Film Awards, known as the Roberts. Monday saw the presentation of the Evening Standard British Film Awards in London, given by British press.

Antichrist was the big winner at the Roberts, picking up seven awards including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay for the controversial Lars Von Trier. Lars Mikkelsen and Henning Moritzen picked up acting prizes for Headhunter. In the two foreign film categories, American and Non-American, the awards went to Up and Slumdog Millionaire (March 2009 release in Denmark) respectively.

The British Film Awards generally honoured smaller indie films, with the low-budget gem Fish Tank winning best film. Several rock-themed films won as well - Anne-Marie Duff won Best Actress for playing John Lennon's mother in Nowhere Boy, Andy Serkis took Best Actor for his role as Ian Dury in Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, and Anvil! The Story of Anvil about the Canadian heavy-metal band won Best Documentary.

Here are the winners of the the Danish Film Awards (Roberts) and British Film Awards.
