Slumdog Millionaire A Winner In Italy

SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE has added to its Oscars haul by landing another top prize at Italy's Nastri d'Argento (Silver Ribbon) Awards on Saturday (27Jun09).
Danny Boyle's critically acclaimed movie, which took home eight of the 10 Academy Awards it was nominated for earlier this year (09), was named best European film outside Italy at the country's longest running industry prize giving.
Clint Eastwood's Gran Torino was also feted as the best non-European film, but the night belonged to director Paolo Sorrentino, whose political drama Il Divo dominated the show and garnered four awards.
The picture delves into the life of former Italian prime minister Giulio Andreotti and his links with the Mafia.
Sorrentino was hailed in the categories for best director and best screenplay; Francesca Cima and Nicola Giuliano shared the best producer accolade and Toni Servillo was named best actor for his portrayal of the shamed politician.
Other winners included Gianni Di Gregorio for best new director, while the best actress prize was awarded to Giovanna Mezzogiorno for Vincere, reports Variety.com.
