16th Satellite Awards

Refn's "Drive" picked up the most amount of awards, namely Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Sound (Editing & Mixing). This is yet another fresh turn of critics' indication of what could possibly emerge as firm favourites. Could the latest revelation serve to encompass more recognition to more deserving candidates besides "The Artist" (which won only the Best Art Direction and Production Design award despite being a hot favourite) would be best left for open discussion.

"The Descendants" also took the Best Picture award and Best Adapted Screenplay.
