‘Company’ lands 4 Golden Eagles

Most of awards went to country's big B.O. winners

Helmer Fyodor Bondarchuk’s Afghan war drama “9th Company,” last year’s top grosser in Russia, took film, cinematography, music and sound honors at Russia’s Golden Eagle Awards, held onstage at Mosfilm studio on Saturday.

Most of the awards went to the country’s big B.O. winners.

Alexei Uchitel took director honors for his 1960s drama “Dreaming of Space.” Uchitel admitted he’d hoped the award would go to Ukrainian vet Kira Muratova, whose “The Tuner” took actress kudos for Alla Demidova and the supporting actress award for Nina Ruslanova.

Second hit of the year Djannik Faisiyev’s costumer “Turkish Gambit” nabbed honors for design, costumes and editing (the last going to Italy’s Enzo Mennicone, who was absent from the ceremony).

Awarded by Russia’s National Academy of Film Arts, a creation of helmer Nikita Mikhalkov, the fourth awards ceremony had a family feel with many presenters in family pairs, including Bondarchuk with his mother, the actress Irina Skobtseva, and helmer Vladimir Menshov with his daughter Yulia.

Mikhalkov, collecting best actor honors for his role in “The State Counselor,” remarked on the handover between the generations. His fellow “Counselor” star Konstantin Khabensky took supporting actor kudos.

Best foreign film was “The Aviator,” while the foreign lifetime achievement award went to Robert De Niro, who sent a thank you by video.

Domestic lifetime honors went to helmer Georgy Daneliya, who recalled his Mosfilm debut 50 years ago.
