Lost in Translation wins four comedy awards



Story by: Jack Foley

IT may have been overlooked by the Oscars, but Lost in Translation won four awards at the US Comedy Arts Festival, in Aspen, Colorado on Saturday, March 6, 2004.

Sofia Coppola's film took the audience, screenplay and first-time director prizes, while its star, Bill Murray, was recognised for his performance.

The awards haul follows the six it picked up at the Independent Spirit Awards, and its minor Oscar success, where Coppola picked up the best original screenplay prize.

In other awards, Christopher Guest won best director for his mock-documentary, A Mighty Wind, while Diane Keaton received the American Film Institute Star Award, having been Oscar nominated for her turn in Something's Gotta Give.

British comedian, Dave Gorman, won the best one-person show award, while Napoleon Dynamite, a comedy by new director, Jared Hess, won best feature in the festival's Film Discovery Program.

My Date With Drew, a comedy about a man who is obsessed with actress Drew Barrymore, starring Corey Feldman, won the audience award.
