The 2022 CFA kicked off in style, with a long tracking shot featuring presenter and founder Walter Nicoletti. And while many of the night’s victors were expected—director Denis Villeneuve and his best-picture, best director, best cinematography and best editing, – winning Dune, mainly – the evening had a few surprises in store as well. Best actress, a category with the potential to swing in any number of directions, wound up going to Kristen Stewart. Even more surprisingly, best actor to Will Smith. Olga Mereditz won best supporting actress, Bradley Cooper won best supporting actor for Licorice Pizza, while Luca, directed by Enrico Casarosa, won best animation. Drive My Car won best foreign language film. Finally two honorary awards has announced: best revelation actor to Troy Kotsur for CODA and Life Time Achievement Award is assigned to Francis Ford Coppola for his italian origin (he descends from Italian immigrants originally from Bernalda, in the province of Matera).
