Krystyna Janda in the category

More than 2 million 300 thousand viewers watched Nov. 18 Gala Golden Ducks on channel TVP. That's a record in the tradition of the oldest Polish film award, the final of three years is broadcast by TVP.

In addition to the audience of 2.5 thousand guests in Warsaw's Congress Hall applauded the winners and leading Gala - Grazyna Torbicka and Paul Krolikowski, and great singers: Edyta Gorniak and Mieczyslaw Szczesniak ("Dumka two hearts"), Sonia Bohosiewicz (song from "Night and day "), Thomas Karolak (" Melusine "from" The Academy of Mr. Blot ") and Boris Szyca (song from" Vabanku ").

Honorary Patronage of the gala Golden Ducks held the Mayor of Warsaw and the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage. Was co-organized by the Polish Film Institute.

The voting results seemed to us very interesting, both in historical terms - Golden Ducks Centennial for film history and costume - and then awards season (between 1 October 2008 and 30 September 2009). What else is worth a special highlight, the vast majority of categories votes were spread very evenly, and although ultimate winner is generally conducted in the vote from the very beginning, the distance between successive titles or actors were not very large.

The exception was a Krystyna Janda in the category of historical costume, which from the beginning of the plebiscite conducted with a large number of votes. Recall that this is another "historic" duck the outstanding actress - Two years ago, she easily won the Golden Duck 50 years (since the then anniversary of our poll - the oldest in Poland, not only the film awards, but also cultural, celebrated). The phenomenon of "Janda" certainly deserves a profound analysis because its phenomena can not be reduced only to the actor's craft, or even an extremely successful debut as a creator, director, director and personal manager of the theater. Janda is a female body, woman-standing and a female symbol. Perhaps one of the latest in modern Poland, where felling and spitting authorities has become somewhat of a national sport.

On the other ducks agrees to pay attention to the category of Polish duel against the rest of the world, which was initially treated only as a form of sympathetic fun. The results surprised us, however, to the point that we started to think about not just the "hurrapatriotyzmem" viewers, which ascertainment that - perhaps - just really did a great historical movie!

Grazyna Torbicka and Zbigniew Zamachowski

Again, the Gala was co-organized by the Polish Film Institute and honorary patronage Gala took the Minister of Culture and National Heritage and the President of Warsaw. Gala Golden Ducks - the 100th anniversary of Polish cinema was held on 12 November 2008 at the Congress Hall of the Palace of Culture. This time hosted by Grazyna Torbicka and Zbigniew Zamachowski. Gala again was broadcast on Channel 2 Television Polish, I watched nearly 2 million viewers.

Nearly two thousand in Warsaw's Congress Hall applauded the triumph of 96-year-old (!) Irena Kwiatkowska, which readers of "Film" comedienne chose Centennial. And she's not quite that survived Gala in great shape, it has given several interviews on it and went to the banquet, in which she played until almost midnight ... Rooting for her in this, with genuine emotion, all the other winners Ducks, the three ministers (culture, justice, and for the family), and three presidents: TVP, Bank of Environmental Protection (the main sponsor of the gala) and our publisher - Media Platform Point Group. And we remembered all the time that Gala would not have happened if not hundreds of readers and the people who helped us in the organization, from artists and writers who have appeared and handed out awards for outstanding professionals with TVP 2 through to those whose money helped frame the true coronation Irena Kwiatkowska and honor Jerzy Stuhr, Sylvester Chęciński, Danuta Szaflarska, Machulski and all the rest.

Monika Richardson and Cezary Claw

Gala was broadcast on Channel 2 aired on Polish TV, hosted the ceremony in the Congress Hall of the Palace of Culture were Monika Richardson and Cezary Claw. Gala was co-organized by the Polish Film Institute and the Office of the City of Warsaw. The ceremony did not lack such personalities as: Jerzy Antczak, Jadwiga Barańska, Edyta Gorniak, Katarzyna Figura, Jerzy Skolimowski, Zbigniew Zapasiewicz and Jerzy Hoffman.

Nearly two million TV viewers and two thousand VIPs from the world of culture, business and the media in Warsaw's Congress Hall applauded, admired, delighted in and affected by the biggest Polish film artists who won the Golden Duck 50 years.

It all started long before Monday evening October 29, when lit spotlights front of the Palace of Culture and the first distinguished guests walked up the stairs sent the red carpet.

The editorial staff of "Film" a week earlier cut short a phone with requests for invitations to the Gala, with questions, who leads in the vote, and who has the best chance of ultimate victory. They called actors and their agents, major businessmen and journalists. And readers. We ourselves, editors of "Picture", we were surprised by the emotion that was accompanied.

I think only the same Gala realized that the atmosphere is so hot after a natural explanation, when before our eyes roztoczyło the whole post-war Polish cinema: movies-masterpieces galaxy of outstanding actors, gripping his throat music and the best questions. What's more, Congress Hall was filled with just those whom we owe the greatest film of emotion.

Then we realized that although our anniversary Golden ducks readers and viewers can even award prizes in 10 categories, and the appointment was not until 75, it's still not enough to distinguish, reward and just thank all the well-deserved. For those who are difficult to Poland and Polish years provided us with the greatest excitement and emotion, let know and understand, help to laugh and cry. We thank them all - the famous and anonymous.

And each of the winners of the 10 categories of our poll is treated as a primus inter pares: first among equals.
