Harvey Weinstein got a surprise at the 18th Capri-Hollywood Film Festival in Capri, Italy. Weinstein was presented with an unexpected award during a ceremony that followed the Monday premiere of Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom which he exec produced. Dubbed “Mr. Oscar” by festival founder and director Pascal Vicedomini, Weinstein was brought up onstage to accept the prize. A reportedly stunned Weinstein told the crowd: “What Pascal doesn’t realize is that I’m not actually Jewish, I’m Sicilian. And I have some friends who are going to visit him in the middle of the night to repay him for calling me up on stage tonight.” Idris Elba and Naomie Harris were awarded Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress prizes during the ceremony for their work in Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom. Their awards were previously announced.
