Wes Anderson and Richard Linklater among the Berlin Film Festival Award Winners

The Grand Budapest Hotel

A few hours ago over at the Berlin Film Festival, the jury began giving out their annual awards for the fest. All of the prizes have now been given out, so I wanted to point them out to you all quickly. The top prize of the Golden Bear is the beg one of course, but sometimes the Silver Bear winners can be even more interesting. Especially if you already have an eye towards next year’s Oscar hopefuls, that’s certainly the case here.

While the Chinese film noir Black Coal, Thin Ice won the Golden Bear, taking the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prix was Wes Anderson’s much anticipated The Grand Budapest Hotel. The other really notable prize was the Silver Bear for Best Director (basically their Best Director prize and arguably the second biggest award at the fest), which went to Richard Linklater for his ambitious work on the passion project Boyhood. Both Anderson and Linklater will likely have their movies in play for awards consideration throughout the year, especially in the fall when the next precursor season begins again, so keep an eye out about them.

You can see all of the winners below, but Boyhood and The Grand Budapest Hotel are the ones I wanted to make you aware of now, specifically. They both could be Best Picture nominees a year from now, potentially at least, so it’s worth it to take note of them now as opposed to when they first come out in theaters later on in 2014.
