Oscar-winning sequel THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM has been voted film of the year in a
British nationwide poll.
The Matt Damon follow-up beat out competition from movies including Best
Picture Academy Award winner No Country For Old Men to win the People’s Choice
section of the Richard Attenborough Film Awards.
Several thousand people selected their film of 2007 from a shortlist of 30
movies and then submitted their votes via 25 regional British media outlets.
In a statement, thrilled Damon says, “We shot most of the sequences in The
Bourne Ultimatum in London and at the UK’s Pinewood Studios with a primarily
British crew, so I’m particularly excited that this award has been voted for by
the Brits themselves.”
The Bourne Ultimatum collected Oscars for Best Sound Editing, Best Sound
Mixing and Best Film Editing at Sunday’s (24Feb08) Academy Awards ceremony in
