Totally Random Juries Hand Out Tribeca 2010 Hardware
Jessica Alba took the night off from her fiery culinary adventures to join the rest of the Tribeca Film Festival's random jurors on awards night. The festival handed out more than $150,000 in cash prizes to an international array of filmmakers, with the German entry When We Leave picking up the top narrative award and additional hardware for best actress Sibel Kekilli. The superb relationship drama-surveillance thriller (really!) Monogamy won the prize for Best New York Narrative; watch for it if/when it comes to a festival/theater near you. The full list of winners is after the jump -- congrats to all.
