Sweetshop director Edward Berger’s feature ‘All Quiet on the Western Front’ wins four Oscars
Off the back of his seven BAFTA’s last month which included Best Picture and Best Director, the gold continued to roll in for Sweetshop director Edward Berger as his Netflix drama, All Quiet on the Western Front took out four of the nine nominations at last night’s Academy Awards.
The film was awarded Best International Feature, Best Cinematography, Best Sound and Best Production Design. While accepting the award Berger made special mention of the lead actor Felix Kammerer: “This was your first movie, and you carried us on your shoulders. Without you, none of us would be here.”
After coming off stage, golden statue in hand, Berger spoke to reporters about feeling like an outsider in Hollywood: “I hope this gives me and a few others, a bit of confidence to say, lets just do it!”
Says Paul Prince, executive chairman and founding partner, Sweetshop: “Sending a huge congratulations to Edward on behalf of everyone here at Sweetshop, we couldn’t be prouder of what he and his crew have achieved. Outstanding achievement”
