Schipper's 'Victoria' victorious at German Lolas

22 June 2015 3:58 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Sebastian Schipper’s Victoria was the big winner at this year’s German Film Awards, taking home six statuettes from its seven nominations including the Golden Lolas for Best Film, Best Director, and Best Lead Actor.

Schipper’s one-shot thriller set during a breathless night on the streets of Berlin also picked up Lolas for the Spanish actress Laia Costa, the title character, and the Danish cinematographer Sturla Brandth Grøvlen.

Victoria premiered in the Berlinale’s main competition last February where Grøvlen received a Silver Bear, was released in German cinemas on 11 June and is being handled internationally by The Match Factory.

The Silver Lola for Best Film was awarded by the members of the German Film Academy to Edward Berger’s social-realist drama Jack, with the Bronze Lola going to Johannes Naber’s black comedy Age Of Cannibals which deservedly also received the Lola for Best Screenplay for the searing dialogues by the author Stefan Weigl.

Britain's Got Talent came to an end tonight (May 31) as one lucky winner claimed a spot at this year's Royal Variety Performance.

Jules O'Dwyer and Matisse topped the viewer vote and were duly named Britain's Got Talent 2015 champions.

We round up the reaction on social media to tonight's Britain's Got Talent live final below.

Firstly, there was a lot of moaning about the number of adverts during the show:

Britain's Got Adverts #BGTfinal

Sean Goldsmith (@SeanGoldsmith2) May 31, 2015

I've just voted for the @plusnet advert. Not got the hang of this yet. #BGTfinal

John Archer (@TheArchini) May 31, 2015

I don't normally watch @Bgt and these adverts after every act are reminding me why. So annoying. #BGTfinal

— Chris Jay Lewis (@c_j_lewis) May 31, 2015

Two and a half hours of #BGTFinal tonight, that's 43 minutes of the show and 107 minutes of adverts

Chinese artist Ai Weiwei will shoot his eight-minute segment via distance directing from Beijing this weekend.
