FARGO Leads The 8th Annual 20/20 Awards

on February 23 | in Events, News | by | with Comments Off on FARGO Leads The 8th Annual 20/20 Awards

THE SYNDICATE HAS SPOKEN

THE ENGLISH PATIENT went home with 9 Oscars two decades ago, but in hindsight the Syndicate turned a cold shoulder to that film and awarded FARGO with 5 awards including Best Picture, Director, Actress, Supporting Actor and Original Screenplay. TRAINSPOTTING and THE ENGLISH PATIENT each nabbed 3 trophies.

This is the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Felix Award for the Coen Brothers. They previously won for screenplay on MILLER’S CROSSING, and it’s the second win for cinematographer Roger Deakins, and 3rd for Composer Danny Elfman .

Titles with an asterisk* denote that this work previously won an Oscar 20 years earlier. This year we have 7 recipients of the coveted Oscar/Felix combo, also known as “The Odd Couple”.
