Campion scoops major awards at Golden Globes

Baku, January 10, AZERTAC

New Zealand film director Jane Campion has added the two major Golden Globe awards to other film festival successes for her broody western, The Power of the Dog.

The Golden Globes have been handed out in Los Angeles today but the event was not televised and there was no audience or red carpet.

Instead, winners were announced to the public via social media and on the Golden Globes website. Campion was named best director of a motion picture - drama ahead of Kenneth Branagh for Belfast, Maggie Gyllenhaal, The Lost Daughter, Steven Spielberg, West Side Story (2021) and Denis Villeneuve, Dune The Power of the Dog - which starred Benedict Cumberbatch and Kirsten Dunst - then scooped best picture to cap off the event, which is considered a guide to which movies will be favoured at the Oscars.

The film has been critically acclaimed - and Kodi Smit-McPhee has also been honoured for his performance winning for best supporting actor in a movie today.

The screenplay which Campion also wrote is based on Thomas Savage's 1967 book of the same name and is Campion's first film with a male protagonist.
