THE GIRLS ON FILM PODCAST ANNOUNCES THE WINNERS OF THE GIRLS ON FILM AWARDS 2023:
THE WOMAN KING, AFTERSUN AND THE WONDER LEAD THE WAY
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LONDON – 23 FEBRUARY 2023
The Woman King and Aftersun triumphed at the second annual Girls On Film Awards, rewarding exceptional women in cinema. Actor Sheila Atim attended the ceremony at London’s The Garden Cinema to accept two awards for The Woman King: for Best Ensemble Acting sponsored by Netflix, and Best Female Friendship On Screen. Director Gina Prince-Bythewood said of the award: “Thank you, Girls On Film, for this very cool honour. We are so, so proud of this film, not only because it shows how women have this innate warrior within them, but also shows the incredible power of sisterhood”.
The Woman King star Viola Davis was also awarded the Feminist Superhero award, given to a disruptor of inequality in the entertainment industry who has changed the landscape of the film industry. In the year that The Woman King was overlooked by the Academy Awards, Girls On FIlm is proud to have recognised this remarkable feature, as well as nominating another omission from the Oscar list: Chinonye Chukwu’s extraordinary Till.
Aftersun director Charlotte Wells followed her BAFTA win with the award for Best Feature Film Sponsored by EON Productions, while the Aftersun publicity team also won Best Publicity Campaign.
The Wonder featured in two winning categories: Best Cinematographer for Ari Wegner (also for her work on The Power of the Dog) as well as the The Girls On Film Ally Award sponsored by IMDb, for director Sebastián Lelio. Meantime exec producer Lucy Pullin picked up the award for Sinead O’Connor documentary Nothing Compares. Its director Kathryn Ferguson said, “We just want to say a humongous thank you for this award, we are very thrilled and honoured […] I want to thank Sinead O’Connor, she has been an inspiration to me since I was a young Irish girl”.
Girls On Film is committed to representation and activism, and the winner of the Diversity Badge of Honour was Akua Gyamfi, for her tireless longtime work with The British Blacklist and beyond. Commended for their work on representation were film and TV critic Ashanti Omkar and sound editor and activist Emma Butt. The climax of the night was the coveted Best Female Orgasm sponsored by Intimacy on Set. Emma Corrin, who is non-binary but plays a female character, was highly commended for their work in Lady Chatterley’s Lover. “We commend them for their exquisite work as an actor and also for their activism,” said hosts Anna Smith and Hedda Archbold of Corrin.
The overall winner of the Orgasm award was for the film Good Luck To You, Leo Grande, performed by Emma Thompson with co-star Daryl McCormack. Writer Katy Brand said of the win, “We talked a lot about Nancy’s orgasm in the redrafting of the film… [asking]… should she even have an orgasm? Should she have it with Leo?… And in the end, it seemed that she ought to have this orgasm as a moment of just purely private pleasure, just for her. And that felt really right. And so I’m really glad that you agree.”
The ceremony on 23 February 2023 was sponsored by EON Productions, IMDb, Intimacy on Set and Netflix. Sponsors in kind were The Garden Cinema and Head Gear Films sponsored the reception. Media partners were Deadline.com, Time Out, Scala Rado and British Cinematographer magazine.

It is a rare historical film that shows female sensitivity, bonding and friendship, that feels ground-breaking and unprecedented in its depiction of strong, complex,
multi-generational Black women fighting for each other – physically, emotionally and spiritually.

2.Best Documentary Feature – WINNER Nothing Compares, Directed by Kathryn Ferguson
(previous year’s winner: For Sama)
Citation: This year’s crop delivered an incredible selection of documentaries. Girls On Film adored all these films but there was one that clearly moved the voters especially deeply. Nothing Compares is an inspiring and moving feminist documentary about activism. The jury was impressed by filmmakers’ sensitive treatment of this untold story of a musical icon. It was edited with flair to create a poignant story relevant to today.

- Fadia’s Tree – directed by Sarah Beddington

- Last Flight Home – directed by Ondi Timoner
- Nothing Compares – directed by Kathryn Ferguson
3.Best Production Design – WINNER Kave Quinn for Catherine Called Birdy
Citation: For Catherine Called Birdy, Kave Quinn has built a world rich in detail and as spirited and colourful as the film’s protagonist. The vibrancy of the locations echoes the playful, anarchic spirit of the film as a whole, and you get a real sense of how life may have been in its period. The house expresses dimensions of the protagonist’s personality, and imagination, as they evolve throughout this entertaining and delightfully feminist film.
- Katie Byron for Don’t Worry Darling
- Ruth de Jong for Nope
- Catherine Martin & Karen Murphy for Elvis
- Florencia Martin for Babylon and Blonde
- Kave Quinn for Catherine Called Birdy
4.Best Composer – WINNER Hildur Guðnadóttir for Women Talking and Tár
(previous year’s winner: Nainita Desai)
Citation: Hildur Guðnadóttir wrote not one but two scores this year, which could not be more different. In Tár, she proves herself a mistress of understated suspense, in Women Talking, her music develops complex issues of trauma, reconciliation with the past, and the freedom to move on to a brighter future. In both, she demonstrates the courage and versatility to deal with complex subjects and psychologically intense dramas. There is a lack of sentimentality and an intellectual heft to her work in film that marks her out.
- Chanda Dancy for Devotion and I Wanna Dance With Somebody
- Hildur Guðnadóttir for Women Talking and Tár
- Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch for Living
- Aska Matsumiya for After Yang
- Amelia Warner for Mr Malcolm’s List
5.Best Cinematographer – WINNER Ari Wegner ASC for The Wonder and The Power of the Dog
Citation: Our voters said that the work of Ari Wegner has gone from strength to strength. She is nominated for The Wonder and The Power of the Dog, in which she uses moody, intimate yet bold imagery. She can take the viewer effortlessly from a dark, draughty attic with a dying girl, to sweaty, opium-induced dreams of loss, to a brassy, frost-bitten Irish countryside, whilst retaining a unity within the film. She has an exquisite eye for tone and composition.
- Autumn Durald Arkapaw ASC for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
- Hélène Louvart AFC for Nezouh and Mother and Son
- Kate McCullough ISC for The Quiet Girl
- Polly Morgan ASC BSC for The Woman King
- Ari Wegner ASC for The Wonder and The Power of the Dog

6.Ensemble Acting Sponsored by Netflix – WINNER The Woman King
(previous year’s winner: Rocks)
Citation: The Woman King features an incredible central cast, some of whom have been guests on the Girls On Film podcast before. They were perfectly cast and worked tirelessly on this project to make it a hugely successful collaboration. The phenomenal cast don’t shy away from the action; instead, they embrace it, not only to show insurmountable strength but heart and empathy among their varied roles. The voters felt this was a beacon of what can be achieved with a majority of women behind the camera as well as in front of it, giving us a dazzling display of the strength and power of women who work together and support each other emotionally and in this case, physically.

He also frequently works with talented female writers and has proven himself a true collaborator and ally of women in the industry, not least with the exceptional film The Wonder.

- Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert for Everything Everywhere All At Once
- Sebastián Lelio for The Wonder
- Jordan Peele for Nope
8.Best Feature Film Sponsored by EON Productions – WINNER Aftersun, Directed by Charlotte Wells
(previous year’s winner: Booksmart)
Citation: Aftersun director Charlotte Wells announces herself as one of the most striking cinema voices of our times. She re-energises the word ‘evocative’ – this is cinema that magically allows each viewer to imprint their own experiences onto it. It is skilfully crafted, especially in its devastating final 15 minutes where the director alchemises all of the film’s images, sounds, and fractured moments into something utterly sublime and heartbreaking. It is an intimate masterpiece.

- Ali & Ava – directed by Clio Barnard
- Corsage – directed by Marie Kreutzer

Citation: Akua Gyamfi has tirelessly worked industry-wide for many years. She has advocated for representation and opportunities for Black British Talent, giving so much of her time and energy for a passion project that has become an industry movement. Her commitment to the cause is inspiring and has shown real results, with much more to come.
- Emma Butt – Sound Editor and activist

11. Feminist Superhero – WINNER Viola Davis, Actress, producer and activist
(previous year’s winner: Mia Bays)
Citation: Viola Davis has a deep commitment to feminism. She expresses it in every role she chooses, in the films she chooses to produce, and in her powerful and rousing speeches on equal rights. The youngest and first Black American EGOT, she is one of the smartest women in the business. She’s always been a powerhouse but she has emerged as a real feminist superhero, whether delivering a toweringly physical performance or speaking out against endemic racism and colourism in the film industry. If you haven’t seen her rousing speech at the Women’s March in LA, seek it out now.
- Viola Davis, Actress and activist
- Ita O’Brien, Founder of Intimacy on Set
- Sarah Polley, Director, Women Talking
- Emma Thompson, Actress and activist
- Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, journalists and authors
12. Best Female Orgasm sponsored by Intimacy on Set – WINNER Good Luck To You, Leo Grande, Emma Thompson (with Daryl McCormack)
(previous year’s winner: I’m Your Man)
Citation: ”The word ‘brave’ is overused when we talk about women showing sexuality on screen, especially older women”. So said one of the voters for Good Luck To You, Leo Grande. It is so rare to see scenes of female pleasure that are utterly about them. The intimate scenes were not played for laughs or titillation, but showed that the deep joy of sex can happen at any age. The writing allowed the actress to explore her nascent sexuality in her own unique way, which was a delight to watch, and Emma Thompson simply owned this performance, bringing tenderness and authenticity to it.
In Good Luck To You, Leo Grande, the orgasm is the fulfilment of the protagonist’s development that we follow throughout the film, and is the culmination of an internal emotional shift for her. The film also features a couple relationship that starts as a transactional one and deepens toward an equal partnership. It’s empowering and bracingly refreshing.
