The Pawel Pawlikowski-directed black-and-white drama takes home Best European Film among other gongs, while 'Call Me By Your Name' nails People's Choice Award at the 31st annual awards.

AceShowbiz - Director Pawel Pawlikowski's black-and-white drama "Cold War" was the big winner at the 31st annual European Film Awards in Seville, Spain on Saturday night (December 15).

The acclaimed movie, which is considered the only Oscars Best Foreign Language Film competition for Alfonso Cuaron's "Roma", was named Best European Film, while Pawlikowski walked away with Best Director and Best Screenplay honours and his leading lady, Joanna Kulig, picked up the Best European Actress prize.

The director, who previously picked up the EFA's top prize for "Ida" in 2014, had to collect Kulig's award as she was too pregnant to attend the prizegiving.

Another big winner was Armando Iannucci, who claimed the European Comedy gong for "The Death of Stalin". He took the stage and joked about the controversy surrounding his film, stating, "You're all very brave; this movie was banned in Russia so don't eat or touch anything."

Meanwhile, Ralph Fiennes collected the European Achievement in World Cinema prize Award and filmmaker Luca Guadagnino scored the Peoples Choice Award for "Call Me By Your Name".
