Roman Polanski's "The Ghost Writer" Tops 23rd European Film Awards 


Roman Polanski's "The Ghost Writer" dominated the 23rd European Film Awards winning six trophies including best film, best director for Polanski, best actor for Ewan McGregor, best screenwriter for Polanski and Robert Harris, best production designer for Albrecht Konrad, and best composer for Alexandre Desplat. ("The Ghost Writer" movie review)

Polanski accepted his awards live via Skype from his home in Paris since he can't travel outside France, Switzerland, or Poland because there's still a U.S. warrant out for his arrest on sex charges from the 1970s. ("The Ghost Writer" interviews with Pierce Brosnan and Olivia Williams)
