The movie missed out on the Best Film prize, which went to 9/11 dramatization United 93, but it was named among the 10 best films of 2006, and claimed three major honors.
Alfonso Cuaron was named Best Director and the Mexican filmmaker and his four co-screenwriters also grabbed the award for Best Adapted Screenplay. Emmanuel Lubezki won Best Cinematography for his innovative camera work in the film.
Meanwhile, The Departed swept both the lead and supporting male acting categories–Oscars favorite Leonardo DiCaprio was named Best Actor while Jack Nicholson took home the Best Supporting Actor prize for his acclaimed role as a seedy gang boss.
