Teddy Award Verlehung 2010
Last night in Berlin at the station of the Teddy Award – better given the Teddy Awards, and like every year there was also the queer society of Berlin and the Republic of the jack in the hand. Was little difference from the last few years, I sent along the catch this time. This year I had a press accreditation, the guaranteed me the entrance to the teddies and again at the press counter posed the question, if I was sure Press, I would look like guest list default… I was.
A really nice casserole, which there under the motto “Thy name is man” gathered at the teddy bears. Größere und kleinere Prominenz wie Romy Haag, Hella mad or Georg Uecker, Wolfgang Joop, and so on to prominent political figures such as Claudia Roth and Klaus Wowereit. …Mr Westerwelle has not be seen, but was solely with the button “Gays against Guido” present, whose display has incidentally created on the video screen a round of applause, was only slightly smaller, than, could take some of the winners. The teddy is just a political event during the Berlinale.
As was already written the motto of this year teddies “Thy name is man” and this in honor of Rio Reiser, of this year 60 Jahre alt geworden wäre und der wohl der erste bekannte deutschhe Sänger war, who outed himself. To the glory of playing for the first time since 20 Years Sharam back together two songs. For most of the guests there was probably the song with Adel Tawil I & I mention first of all, I found a lot of moving the first song, to the pieces with a first 14 Old singer who came so close to Rio Reiser, how well it can only. This was great as a broken fan.
But actually the Tddy Awards're a queer film award and so it comes to movies, to which I can unfortunately say little, I have not seen them all – I have to change next year- Especially since the Victory Column award in the form of a Goildelse even went to Berlin for the film “Postcard to Daddy” was awarded…
Unfortunately, I do not know otherwise, the countries from which the films are, but probably some countries are again, can use a movie, who got the rennommiertesten queer film award. The teddy is just a statement.
Daher beispielsweise auch die Aktion gegen die geplanten Anti Homosexualität Gesetze in Uganda und die eindringlichen Erklärungen von Amnesty International und die Frage, Why development aid is not linked also to the non-enforcement of such laws… Would not be so stupid, or?
For his life's work was honored Werner Schroeter. Unfortunately, this particular ceremony dragged on so long and so tough, that would have been good at it and likes to create their own life's work. Does not matter, when such great Indian Laudatorenwie a drama queen or such an appearance from Joey Arias happen elsewhere.
