Paul Giamatti took supporting actor kudos for “Cinderella Man”; and Amy Adams received supporting actress honors for “Junebug.”

Top foreign film was “Kung Fu Hustle,” while “Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit” won the animated pic category and Werner Herzog’s “Grizzly Man” took the docu prize.

Gregory von Hausch, executive director of the Fort Lauderdale Intl. Film Festival, was honored with the Golden Orange Award for outstanding contribution to film. He was singled out for keeping the fest going during the worst hurricane to hit Broward County in 55 years, as well as his longevity in the post.
