Silver Bear / Best Actor

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
2019 Prize Winner: Wang Jingchun for See you then, my son

The Silver Bear for the best actor honors the best acting performance of a leading or supporting actor in a competition film (feature film) at the annual Berlin Film Festival . The award was first presented at the sixth edition of the film festival in 1956 . The competition jury, which is mostly composed of international filmmakers, votes on the award of the prize.

As of 2021, the awards for the best actor and the best actress are to be discontinued, instead awards for the best acting in a leading role and the best acting in a supporting role are to be awarded. The ProQuote Film association criticized the gender-neutral prizes as a fig leaf for innovation , saying that the Berlinale is far from gender equality . Much more films by men than by women were shown in the festival's competition.

Award winners

American film actors (20 victories) were most frequently awarded the actor's prize, followed by their colleagues from France (7) and Germany or the GDR (6). The Americans Sidney Poitier (1958 and 1963) and Denzel Washington (1993 and 2000), the French Jean Gabin (1959 and 1971) and the Spaniard Fernando Fernán Gómez (1977 and 1985) each triumphed twice . In 1957 the Mexican actor Pedro Infante received a posthumous award.
