Berlin Film Festival Winners 2014UPDATE, 11:00 AM PT: Chinese director Diao Yinan’s noir thriller Black Coal, Thin Ice was a big winner tonight in Berlin. It took the top prize Golden Bear and also scooped the Best Actor Silver Bear for Liao Fan. The film follows a former detective investigating a string of related deaths, but who also begins to fall in love with the person that connects them. It was a big night for Asian film in general – notable after a lack of titles in competition last year. Cinematographer Zeng Jian won the Silver Bear for Oustanding Contribution for Lou Ye’s Blind Massage and a clearly stunned Haru Kuroki won the Best Actress prize for Japanese director Yoji Yamada’s drama The Little House. Black Coal, Thin Ice berlinRichard Linklater‘s much-loved Boyhood brought the filmmaker a Silver Bear for directing. He accepted the prize “on behalf of the over 400 people who worked on my movie over all these years.” Linklater made Boyhood in short stints over a 12-year period. Wes Anderson‘s crowd-pleaser The Grand Budapest Hotel was the Grand Jury Prize winner. Anderson wasn’t on hand but sent a note thanking the festival for the “first full-scale and genuinely metallic” prize he’s ever won from a film festival. A big surprise tonight was the complete shutout of Yann Demange’s ’71, one of the heavy favorites. Click over for the full list of winners.

BoyhoodPREVIOUS: Prizes began rolling out in Berlin earlier today (see below), and ahead of tonight’s main awards which are just starting. They’ll be handed out by a jury presided over by James Schamus. Among the earlier honors were mentions for two of the hottest films in the competition: Richard Linklater’s Boyhood and Yann Demange’s ’71. Boyhood was recognized with the Prize of the Guild of German Art House Cinemas for best film screened in the Competition, and ’71 received a Special Mention from the Ecumenical Jury. Both are expected to figure in tonight’s ceremony. The competition this year was somewhat more user-friendly than last year’s hardcore art-house lineup, kicking off with the very warmly received The Grand Budapest Hotel. Still, there were just a handful of other consensus standouts including Dietrich Brüggemann’s religion-themed coming-of-age movie Stations Of The Cross; grandbudapesthotelHans Petter Moland’s dark comedy In Order Of Disappearance and Diao Yinan’s noir thriller Black Coal, Thin Ice. Across the sections, Berlin has had a good track record of late when it comes to the Foreign Language Oscar race. Last year’s Panorama title The Broken Circle Breakdown is up for an Oscar next month and previous years’ Oscar selections have included such Berlin bows as A Separation, which won the Foreign Language Academy Award in 2012, and 2013 nominees A Royal Affair and War Witch. I’ll be updating the Golden and Silver Bear winners live below (previously announced winners follow those):
