Awards from the Venice Film Festival

The Woman Who Left, from renowned Filipino auteur Lav Diaz, took home the Golden Lion for the best feature film a the 73rd annual Venice Film Festival. Tom Ford’s divisive, but apparently scintillating Nocturnal Animals won the Jury Prize, or second place, and Ana Lily Amirpour’s The Bad Batch, her follow up to her excellent A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, won a Special Jury Prize.

The bigger news for American films and the impending awards season was that Emma Stone won Best Actress for her role in Damien Chazelle’s La La Land. This year’s Best Actress is jam packed with talent and Stone just might win the whole thing. Watch out for Viola Davis in Fences, Ruth Negga in Loving and Natalie Portman in Jackie, which both her and Pablo Lorrain’s film received raves out Venice. Those are just a few of what is going to be an exciting race for Best Actress.

Full list of winners below. Enjoy.
