‘Monty’ wins top Euro nod

BERLIN — British comedy “The Full Monty” took top honors at the 10th European Film Awards. Uberto Pasolini, the pic’s producer, accepted the award from presenters Jeremy Irons and Helen Mirren at a theater in Berlin’s Tempelhof Airport.

Juliette Binoche, Bob Hoskins, Wim Wenders and Anthony Minghella were among the celebrities attending the show sponsored by the European Film Academy.

French actress Jeanne Moreau was given a standing ovation as she came on stage to accept the EFA Lifetime Achievement Award. After dedicating the award to the late Spanish director Pilar Milo, Moreau commented on the EFA’s new Oscar-like female statuette, joking, “It is the first time I have received a phallic woman as a tribute.”

Accepting an award for European Achievement in World Cinema from his home in Connecticut, director Milos Forman observed that Europe and America are really “two sides of the same coin.” Hollywood, the Czech-born helmer quipped, is like Switzerland: “It is politically not aligned and sells sweets wrapped in tinsel.”
