The German Film Awards were held Friday night in Berlin.  As expected, A Year Ago in Winter lost out on the award for best film to a tale about China's Oskar Schindler, but it did take the runner-up silver best film award (who knew that even existed?) and it won the award for best music.  Not a bad showing at all, especially when combined with the honors for best director and best young performer in the Bavarian Film Awards.

You can hear some of the music here:

Tango for Max
Lilli's Melody

The film also features this amazing song by Peter Gabriel:

Signal to Noise
