Crazy Heart Leads Prism Awards

CRAZY HEART was the big winner at the 2010 Prism Awards - the film garnered praise for JEFF BRIDGES' portrayal of a country singer struggling with alcohol addiction.
The ceremony, which took place in Los Angeles on Thursday (22Apr10), recognises Hollywood productions which raise awareness of drug and mental health issues.
Bridges and Maggie Gyllenhaal, who plays his onscreen girlfriend, were both honoured for their parts in Crazy Heart.
Robert Downey, Jr.'s movie The Soloist, which stars Jamie Foxx as a homeless musician, was cited for its depiction of mental health issues.
Entertainment Industries Council chief Brian Dyak says, "We salute those in the entertainment industry that promote informational truths in their work to improve the lives of the audiences they entertain. Through accurate character portrayals and inspired storytelling, our industry reinforces the importance of those individuals within the caregiving and health fields."
