The magazines “TV Spielfilm” and “Cinema” have honored German and international actors with audience awards.

Comedian Otto Waalkes and actors Daniel Brühl and Mads Mikkelsen have been honored with a Jupiter Award.

The magazines “TV Spielfilm” and “Cinema” awarded the audience prize for outstanding film productions and brilliant acting performances for the 44th time, as a spokeswoman for the media group Hubert Burda Media announced. For the first time since 2019, the event took place live in Hamburg in front of around 80 invited guests.

Otto Waalkes (73) was honored as the best actor in the movie “Catweazle”. Daniel Brühl (43) received the jury’s special prize for his directorial debut “Next door”. The film, shot in Berlin, is an enigmatic satire about gentrification and lies, resentment and envy, it said. The Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen (56) was awarded the trophy for best international actor for his role in the film “The Intoxication”.

Best actress cinema was the Swiss Luna Wedler (22), who convinced the audience in the drama “Je suis Karl”. The Hamburg-born actor Jannik Schümann (29) won a Jupiter for the third time in a row, this time in the Best Actor TV & Streaming category for his role as Emperor Franz Joseph I in “Sisi”. He sent a video message from filming season two. Sisi actress Dominique Devenport, born in Switzerland in 1996, was also honored. Another Jupiter Award went to US actress Kaley Cuoco. The 36-year-old received the award for her role in the series “The Flight Attendant”.
