Lumiere Awards shine three times on ‘Amelie’

Pic nabs film, screenplay and actress kudos

PARIS — Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s “Amelie” has nabbed three Lumiere Awards for film, screenplay and actress (Audrey Tautou), according to organizers of the kudos, the French equivalent of the Golden Globes.

English-language film “Intimacy” earned Patrice Chereau a director prize, and “Billy Elliot” took the foreign film nod.

Other thesps honored were Michel Bouquet, who picked up actor kudos for his role in “How I Killed My Father”; Rachida Brakni, who nabbed female newcomer for Colline Serreau’s “Chaos”; and Abdel Halis, named male newcomer for “17 rue bleue.”

But there will be no glitzy prize-giving ceremony, because the Lumieres, handed out by the foreign press corps, has lost its sponsorship. Instead, the winners’ names will be announced officially at a press conference Saturday at Paris’ Hotel Crillon, venue for the Unifrance-organized international distributors’ French Cinema Rendezvous.

“The Lumieres will be low-key this year,” said organizer Octavi Marti, correspondent for Spanish newspaper El Pais, “but we hope to gear up again during 2002.”
