Joel Coen, Ethan Coen


The Coen brothers added 'No Country for Old Men's' Oscar by nailing the Best Adapted Screenplay, whereas Tilda Swinton won Best Supporting Actress for 'Michael Clayton'.

After being reported earlier that "No Country for Old Men" got its first golden man statue from its acclaimed actor Javier Bardem, the crime drama film for Miramax Films earned another Oscar prize as the Coen brothers were presented with Best Adapted Screenplay. The director duo were given the award by Josh Brolin and James McAvoy at the 80th Annual Academy Awards' ceremony.

At the event held on Sunday, February 24 at the Kodak Theater, Joel and Ethan Coen were given the award for their adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's novel. By receiving the Best Adapted Screenplay honor, the brothers have garnered their second Oscar prize, the first was for Best Original Screenplay with "Fargo".

On Oscar related news, the renowned actress Tilda Swinton has followed the footsteps of Bardem by landing herself the Best Supporting Actress kudo. Her performance as an atrocious attorney in "Michael Clayton" proved to be enough to top other strong contenders, including Ruby Dee and Cate Blanchett.

Receiving the award from presenter Alan Arkin, the overwhelmed Scottish actress said, "I have an American agent who is the spitting image of this." She then explained, "Really, truly, the same shape head, and it has to be said, the buttocks. And I'm giving this to him, because there's no way I'd be in America at all, ever, on a plane if it wasn't for him."
