Hatred (Wo?y?) by Wojciech Smarzowski was tapped as the year’s best film at the Polish Eagles, the country’s main film awards and local equivalent of the Oscars, at a ceremony Monday in Warsaw.
Smarzowski also took home the best director award for Hatred, a love story set against the backdrop of World War II.
The film earned the highest number of nominations, 14, and ended up receiving eight awards, including for best photography, editing and music.
Robert Bolesto, writer of Jan P. Matuszy?ski’s The Last Family (Ostatnia rodzina), collected best screenplay honors, while the movie’s stars, Aleksandra Konieczna and Andrzej Seweryn, were named best actress and actor.
Focused on the unusual life of a well-known artistic family, the pic also earned Matuszy?ski the Discovery of the Year award.
Agata Kulesza received the best supporting actress prize for her role in I’m a Killer (Jestem morderc?) by Maciej Pieprzyca, and Arkadiusz Jakubik collected best supporting actor honors for the same film.
The awards ceremony took a slightly political note when Seweryn appeared onstage in an impersonation of U.S. President Donald Trump to announce the winner in the Discovery of the Year category.
