Celebrating the accuracy of film industry in portraying the use and addiction of drug, alcohol and tobacco, Entertainment Industries Council hailed Universal Pictures' drama "Georgia Rule" as the feature film winner of 2008 Prism Awards in the category of wide release. The tidbit starring Lindsay Lohan, Felicity Huffman and Jane Fonda was given the honor at the awards gala held at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Thursday, April 24, night.
Despite besting over Ben Affleck's "Gone Baby Gone" in the category, the Garry Marshall's movie couldn't bring more kudo as Huffman's performance was shunned out by Casey Affleck's in his brother's directorial debut film. The younger Affleck won Best Performance beating out also Ryan Gosling for "Lars and the Real Girl", Ben Kingsley for "You Kill Me" and Tom Wilkinson for "Michael Clayton".
Other winners for Prism Awards for feature film also include "You Kill Me", the 2007 John Dahl-directed comedy, and "Bobby Dogs". "You" nabbed the title of Best Film in the category of Limited Release, whereas "Dogs" collected Best Film Festival. For the community category, George Clooney's legal drama "Michael Clayton" got special recognition as it received Bipolar Disorder Depiction Award.
