In the last few minutes, Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere" unanimously won the Golden Lion for Best Picture at Venice. I'm fairly surprised that it stuck out enough to warrant the big award, but there we go. Ariane Labed's Best Actress win for "Attenberg" is also a little out of the blue, given the vast amount of competition. Still, it's good when things aren't so predictable.
The full list of winners is as follows:
Golden Lion: "Somewhere" by Sofia Coppola
Silver Lion: Álex de la Iglesia for "A Sad Trumpet Ballad"
Special Jury Prize: "Essential Killing" by Jerzy Skolimowsi
Volpi Cup - Best Actor: Vincent Gallo for "Essential Killing"
Volpi Cup - Best Actress: Ariane Labed for "Attenberg"
Screenplay: "A Sad Trumpet Ballad" by Álex de la Iglesia
