Recently, we were congratulating Sofia Coppola for having her second baby, Cosima, and now it looks like we've got even more to congratulate her on!

Sofia Coppola was awarded the Golden Lion Award at the Venice Film Festival on Saturday for her film Somewhere.

The film is about a Hollywood actor, Johnny Marco, whose life gets consumed with alcohol, drugs, and sex. When Marco’s 11-year-old daughter comes to stay with him, he must reassess his wild lifestyle.

Actors Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning star as Marco and his daughter. Should be inneresting to see if this film could be Dorff’s The Wrestler.

Depending how it goes, maybe we’ll take this as an opportunity to finally forgive Dorff for feardotcom. Yuck!

Are U excited to see Sofia Coppola’s new film?

    There was a report in a U.K. paper That the Italians weren't happy with her getting the Golden Lion award for best film as they said it was just an ok film - not great… Also they said as well as the Golden Lion several awards went to "friends" of Tarrantino who was this years president whicj smacked of favoritism
