With its video game imagery, slacker geek protagonist and sardonic 20-something humour, it is not the type of fare which generally tends to capture the imagination of Hollywood awards body members. Yet the comic book movie Scott Pilgrim Vs the World began a late run for awards-season recognition at the weekend after it picked up a gong for best film of the year at the Satellite awards.
British director Edgar Wright's film took the best motion picture comedy or musical gong at the awards, which are handed out by the International Press Academy and mimic the Golden Globes by splitting awards into drama and comedy categories. Star Michael Cera also carried off the best comedy actor award for his turn as the lovelorn yet pugilistic Pilgrim.

Noomi Rapace has come triumphant over Natalie Portman at 2010 Satellite Awards. The 30-year-old didn't get nominated at 2011 Golden Globes and SAG Awards like the "Black Swan" beauty, but managed to walk away with the Best Drama Actress in a Motion Picture title from the awards presented by the International Press Academy on Sunday, December 19.
The Swedish actress, who stars opposite Robert Downey Jr. in "Sherlock Holmes 2", won the awards thanks to her role as Lisbeth Salander in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". Aside from Natalie, she also beat two other Golden Globes and SAG Awards contenders, Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Lawrence.
While Noomi took home Best Actress for Drama, "Love and Other Drugs" beauty Anne Hathaway nailed the Comedy or Musical category. The male counterparts saw "The King's Speech" star Colin Firth grabbing Best Drama Actor and "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" lead Michael Cera securing Best Comedy or Musical Actor. »
This evening the International Press Academy announced the winners of the 15th Satellite Awards and The Social Network took home six wins including Best Picture (Drama), Director (David Fincher) and Adapted Screenplay (Aaron Sorkin). Additionally, Edgar Wright's Scott Pilgrim vs. the World took home the award for Best Picture (Comedy or Musical) and star Michael Cera won for Best Actor (Comedy or Musical), which makes for two awards giving the awards circuit a bit of a different flavor.
Anne Hathaway taking Best Actress in Comedy/Musical is a bit of a surprise over the ladies of The Kids are All Right and Noomi Rapace besting Natalie Portman, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicole Kidman in the Drama category is also a shift from the norm. It's almost as if they couldn't decide on any of the better performances and settled with the lesser ones. Rapace's performance, especially, is by no means Best Actress material. »
