Headshot wins the most Starpics Awards

Thailand's (and quite possibly the world's) most unpretentious movie awards, the Starpics Thai Film Awards, were given out recently, with Pen-ek Ratanaruang's Headshot winning six of the 12 prizes.

With no fancy red-carpet ceremony, tuxedos or slinky, revealing evening gowns, the winners are photographed with their acrylic trophies, wearing regular clothes in their homes or other ordinary surroundings. The awards are now in their ninth year.

Headshot (ฝนตกขึ้นฟ้า) took the prizes for best picture and best director. "Peter" Nopachai Jayanama won best actor for his role of a hitman who can only see upside down. It also took the awards for editing by Patamanadda Yukol, cinematography by Chankit Chamnivikaipong and art design by Wittaya Chaimongkol.

Here's the other awards:

  • Actress: Piyathida Woramuksik, Laddaland (ลัดดาแลนด์)
  • Supporting actress: Arissara Lemuan, Love Not Yet (รักจัดหนัก, Rak Jad Nak)
  • Supporting actor: Nattawut Sakidjai, Pumpuang (พุ่มพวง)
  • Screenplay: Sophon Sakdaphiset and Sophana Chaowitwantkun, Laddaland
  • Score: Koichi Shimizu and Desktop Error, Hi-So
  • Popular film: GTH, SuckSeed

If you're into keeping count, that's two for Laddaland, including one for the actress who played the mother in the family psychological thriller. The supporting actress winner portrayed the lesbian basketball player in the Tom Hang segment of the teen pregnancy omnibus Love, Not Yet.
