FILM. Director Ang Lee Honored At Britannia Awards.

Variety’s Shalini Dore reports…

Jake Gyllenhaal, who presented Ang Lee with the John Schlesinger Britannia Award for Excellence in Directing, said he thinks frequently of his “Brokeback Mountain” co-star Heath Ledger and how far the LGBT world has come since that movie came out. After the big love scene in “Brokeback,” he said he turned to Lee who broke out into a big smile and said, “So gay.”

Lee, for his part, said he was so tired during the production of “Brokeback,” having such finished filming “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” and “Hulk.” “The shots in ‘Brokeback Mountain’ are so boring,” he said. His father had just died, but “that movie nurtured me.” Lee thanked his actors who were “tortured by my bad English and bad sense of humor.”
