Roman Polanski’s The Ghost Writer triumphed at this year’s European Film Academy’s 23rd European Film Awards. The film, which I have reviewed here, took the best screenwriter, composer, director and the overall film award, at a ceremony on Saturday (04/12/2010) in snowy Tallinn, Estonia – European Capital of Culture 2011. The best animated feature film award went to Sylvain Chomet’s Illusionist – watch this space for a review in the next few days.

Around 1,400 guests were welcomed by German comedy star Anke Engelke and Estonian actor Märt Avandi who were the show’s hosts and over 2,300 members of the European Film Academy are said to have voted at the awards. The individual awards were presented by a line-up of European actors and actresses, among them EFA Ambassador Maria de Medeiros (Portugal), Jean-Marc Barr (France), Hannelore Elsner (Germany), Nikolaj Lie Kaas (Denmark), Miki Manojlović (Serbia), Amanda Ooms (Sweden) and – adding a bit of a local flavour to the event – Lembit and Juhan Ulfsack from Estonia.
