Roberto BenigniThe first line of this news story is exactly why no one should ever give Roberto Benigni an award of any kind: "[The actor] turned in another memorable performance on Monday when he was awarded Italy's highest civilian honor." Because, you know, a simple "thank you," though it's worked for centuries for stars way bigger than him, would never do. I mean, for the love of God - doesn't the guy get enough attention for just making and starring in movies? Dude, you're a knight. Be happy, and sit down.

For those of your eager to see the new knight on screen, his latest effort is
The Tiger and the Snow which he co-wrote, directed, and stars in. It's been a hit in Italy but has thus far failed to win distribution in the US.
