After the Czech film critics voiced their opinion on domestic cinema produced in 2017 (read the news), domestic academy members got their turn to do so for the 25th time at the annual Czech Lions ceremony. These accolades paint a slightly different portrait of domestic production compared to the critics’ opinion. The Czech Film and Television Academy voted Bohdan Sláma’s dramedy Ice Mother [+lee también:

At the end of the night, the production team behind Ice Mother left with six awards – for Best Film, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Script.
Three statuettes (from 13 nominations) were handed to Barefoot [+lee también:

Domestic public broadcaster Czech Television won both TV awards, for Best Television Film or Miniseries, and Best Television Drama Series, thanks to Justice (Spravedlnost) by Slovak director Peter Bebjak and Svět pod hlavou (inspired by the BBC’s Life on Mars) by Marek Najbrt and Radim Špaček, respectively.
The atmosphere during the ceremony was politically charged, as Czech personalities from the film industry defended the independence of public broadcasters following the newly re-elected president’s jab at Czech Television during his inauguration speech. While receiving yet another award for a leading role, Slovakian actress Zuzana Krónerová warned against “the arrogance of power” in the wake of the murder of a Slovakian investigative journalist and his fiancée, which shocked the world and triggered a governmental crisis in Slovakia.
