Venice Film Festival Winners Announced – Live Update – Deadline

Refresh for latest…: The 79th Venice The Film Festival officially draws to a close tonight, with the winners set to be announced inside the Sala Grande. The Main Jury, chaired by Julianne Moore, will present the Golden Lion along with a host of other awards before the hour is up (scroll below for the list which is updated live).

It’s been a jam-packed 10 days on the Lido with star power – and strong opinion – aplenty, although there didn’t seem to be a major breakout like we’ve seen in recent years. Among the highest rated films was that of Martin McDonagh The Banshees of Inisherin with Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson. From Searchlight, he announced McDonagh’s return to Venice after 2017 Three billboards outside Ebbing Missouri won best screenplay before picking up a myriad of wins elsewhere and two Oscars.

by Luca Guadagnino bones and all (MGM), with Taylor Russell and Timothée Chalamet, and Laura Poitras’ All the beauty and bloodshed (Entrant/HBO) made a mark. The Netflix photos were a mixed bag with plenty of praise for Romain Gavras’ kinetic French language Athena while Alexander G Inarritu bardo divided some. The long gestation of Andrew Dominik Blond eventually debuted to largely positive Deadline reviews.

Other notable titles include Alice Diop’s Saint-Omerby Santiago Miter Agentina 1985 and Jafar Panahi no bear.

On the acting front, Cate Blanchett has been praised for her starring role in Todd Field’s Tar from Focus while Brendan Fraser applauded Darren Aronofsky The whale (A24).

However, like any festival, Venice has surprises in store when it awards trophies. What’s certain is that any movie that wins top honors here means it’s not the last we’ll hear about during awards season.

We’ll know more shortly, so check back for updates.
