Leading figures honoured at Romanian “Oscars”

Radu Beligan, Gheorghe Zamfir, Dan Iordachescu and Cristian Topescu are among the laureates of the Romanian Oscars, awarded, on Monday evening, in a gala hosted by the Bucharest National Opera (ONB), Agerpres reports.


“If it hadn’t been for their highnesses the public, I wouldn’t have existed,” the maestro Iordachescu stated, adding he would launch an autobiography, in December, at the Romanian Athenaeum.


At the same time, in acknowledgment of their excellent achievements in their line of work, trophies were awarded to neurologist Dumitru Constantin Dulcan, journalist Corina Dragotescu, diplomat Ion M. Anghel, chemistry researcher Raluca Van Staden and manager Ian Tilling, for his charity work.


The Romanian Oscars were initiated, in 1998, by the Tele­orman Youth Foundation. The trophy consists in a gold-coated metal statue, a replica of the American Film Academy’s famous Oscar, and is awarded annually, by patent. Each of the preceding editions has put down in its golden book over 60 nominations, made by consulting the public and the earlier laureates. The trophy was awarded annually, in a number of gala ceremonies held in the Teleorman Prefecture foyer, under the patronage of the county prefect.


The laureates of earlier editions of the Romanian Oscars included: Constantin Balaceanu Stolnici, Mircea Albulescu, also present in the Monday night gala, Liviu Vasilica, Catalin Botezatu, Nicolae Noica.


The event, which reached its 13th edition, marks the inauguration of the “Art Season” project, a manifestation organized by ONB, which also included on Mon­day evening, the opening of Mi­rela Traistaru’s painting exhibition, a presentation of Wilhel­mina Arz’s latest fashion designs and the actor Mircea Albulescu’s latest poetry volume.
