Golden Eagle Award

Golden Eagle Award

Golden Eagle Award (Russian: "премия Золотой Орел") is a Russian national award for motion pictures and TV series made in Russia, run by the Russian Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, established in 2002, ostentatiously modelled on the Golden Globe Awards, as it honors both film and television achievements, given out in 20 nominations each January. The ceremony is held at the Mosfilm studios, where some of the most acclaimed Soviet features were filmed.

The award was instituted by Nikita Mikhalkov as a counterweight to the prestigious Nika Award established in 1987 and run by the Russian Academy of Cinema Arts and Sciences in Moscow and given to films produced in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States.


* At the first ceremony in 2002, three awards were given to Aleksandr Rogozhkin's "Kukushka" (Best Feature Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay), while the Lifetime Achievement Award went to Bernardo Bertolucci.
* In 2003, the Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Francis Ford Coppola. The film "72 Meters", loosely based on the tragedy of the Russian submarine Kursk, won the Best Feature Film and the Best Original Score (for the composer Ennio Morricone).
* In 2004, Andrey Zvyagintsev bagged the Best Feature Film award for his "Vozvrashcheniye". Oleg Yankovsky was named the Best Supporting Actor, and Inna Churikova won the Golden Eagle as the Best Supporting Actress. The Life Achievement Award was given to Miloš Forman.
* In 2005, the box-office champion "9th Company" won the award for Best Feature Film, while Georgi Danelia was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Nikita Mikhalkov (the founder of the award ceremony) was named the Best Actor and the Best Actress honor went to Alla Demidova who also won the Nika Award that same year.
* In 2006, Pavel Lungin's "The Island" grabbed the awards for Best Feature Film, Best Director, Best Actor, among several others. The Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Roman Polanski.
* In 2007, Mikhalkov's "12" was named the Best Feature Film, while the film's entire cast shared the Best Actor award.
