And the Anugerah Skrin 2010 winners are...
By SHAMALA VELU
Anugerah Skrin 2010 honours the best in the big and small screens.
LAST Friday’s Anugerah Skrin 2010 was staged in pomp and grandeur, similar to the ones in previous years.
The event, held at Putra World Trade Centre in Kuala Lumpur, was organised by TV3 in recognition of the country’s most talented actors, directors and filmmakers.
The opening song Aku Dan Duniamu – delivered by Jaclyn Vicor, Noryn Aziz and Adibah Noor – enthralled the audience. Their presence – together with hosts Vanidah Imran and Awal Ashaari – paved the way for an exciting evening.
This year, 24 categories were contested: 10 awards for drama, seven for film, six for in-house productions and one for best videography.
The nominees were productions which aired on TV or in cinemas between July 1, 2009, and June 30 this year.
The late director Yasmin Ahmad’s name was once again mentioned when her film Muallaf won for Best Film.
It was a double celebration for its cast and crew when Sharifah Amani clinched the best actress title for her portrayal in Yasmin’s movie.
“I’m truly honoured,” said a tearful Sharifah, reminiscing over her experiences with her late mentor.
“I came in support of my team but here I am with the award,” she said to reporters shortly after receiving the trophy.
The other films contesting for the best film title were Setem, Papadom, Pisau Cukur and Evolusi KL Drift 2.
Evolusi KL Drift won two awards, with Aaron Aziz walking away with the best supporting actor award and film director Shamsul Yusof (who also wrote the screenplay), clinching best screenplay.
Said Aaron: “I was surprised when my name was called,” he said, adding that the film industry is getting bigger and more competitive.
“It’s either you make it or break it, so I’m truly honoured,” he said.
Director Shahrul Ezad Mohamedin was of the same opinion. He was moved beyond words when he won best screenplay for his drama Antara Garisan. The drama also won in the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor categories.
“This is my ninth year here and I finally won!” said Shahrul. He added: “For me, the audience is the real jury.”
Meanwhile, Fauzi Nawawi beat Fahrin Ahmad, Rosyam Nor, Syed Ismail Ali and Ungku Ismail to emerge winner in the best actor in a drama category for his role in Sebelum Akhirat.
Howevever, it was the Anugerah Khas Juri or Yasmin Ahmad Award that the audience were most eager about.
This award, which honours artistes’ consistent contributions, went to Shaheizy Sam for his work in the film and TV industries.
Among the presenters were Lisa Surihani, Erra Fazira, Erma Fatima, Datuk Aziz Sattar and Rosyam Noor. The awards show was aired live on TV3 at 9pm.
