Russian film “Leviathan” was named the Best Foreign Language Film at the Golden Globe awards ceremony held here Sunday.
The flick directed by Andrey Zvyagintsev was pitted against “Force Majeure” (Turist) – Sweden, “Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem Gett” – Israel, “Ida” – Poland/Denmark, “Tangerines” (Mandariinid) – Estonia.
India lost its chance this year even though two films – “Fandry” and “Liar’s Dice” – were among the 53 movies considered for the foreign film category.
They lost out in the race for the final nominations.
Dean DeBlois’s directorial “How to Train Your Dragon 2” was Sunday awarded with the Best Animated Feature Film trophy at the 72nd Golden Globe award ceremony.
The 3D, computer-animated, action-fantasy film is loosely based on the book series of the same name by Cressida Cowell. It is the sequel to the 2010 movie “How to Train Your Dragon” and is the second in the trilogy.
“How To Train Your Dragon 2” had competitors in entertainers like “Big Hero 6”, “The Book Of Life”, “The Boxtrolls” and “The Lego Movie”.
