Hrebejk’s ‘Divided’ unites Czech awards

World Brief

PRAGUE — Czech helmer Jan Hrebejk got a warm pre-Academy Awards sendoff at Saturday night’s Czech Lion awards. His Oscar-nommed “Divided We Fall” swept the awards for film, director, actor (Boleslav Polevka), actress (Anna Siskova) and screenplay (Petr Jarchovsky), as well as winning the critic’s prize.

The presentation of the Czech Lion took a literal twist — a cuddly specimen from Prague Zoo shared the stage with Culture Minister Pavel Dostal and Czech New Wave helmer Vera Chytilova, who received a standing ovation for her lifetime contribution award.
