The European Film Awards took place December 10th in Poland and made a bit of history. For the first time, a film directed by a woman took the top prize. Germany's Maren Ade also won the directing and screenwriting prizes for her film "Toni Erdmann". A father-daughter relationship drama with comedic elements, "Toni Erdmann" is Germany's entry for the Academy Awards Foreign Language category. The movie will be released in the US on Christmas Day.
