'Youth' the Standout at European Film Awards
Youth has won big at the European film awards, taking home the best film award while director Paolo Sorrentino also took home the directing trophy.
Sorrentino has repeated his feat following The Great Beauty in 2013. That particular film went on to win the Oscar for best foreign-language picture.
On top of those, Michael Caine unsurprisingly won the best actor award for his role as the artist who has grown too old to care about the things he once excelled at. Caine also received a lifetime achievement honour from the EFA's president and board.
"I've never received a European film prize and tonight I got two!" the charming British actor proclaimed. He received standing ovations for his achievements. "I can't say how honoured I am... thank you for the work. Next time, I'll ask for more money," he said on-stage.
