    Sundance Goes Wild for Like Crazy; How to Die in Oregon Nabs Top Honors

    Felicity Jones, Like Crazy Crispy Films

    Sundance can't get enough of Like Crazy (or James Franco's blonde-wig shenanigans).

    The romantic drama, centered around a long-distance love affair between an American student (Jacob) and a British student (Anna) took home the film festival's Grand Jury Prize for a Dramatic film at Sundance's awards ceremony Saturday evening in Park City, Utah, hosted by a snowflake-suit donning Tim Blake Nelson

    But that wasn't the only accolade the film racked up…

    While newly cemented Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence stars in the love flick as well, it was her co-star, newcomer Felicity Jones (who plays Anna) who garnered the Special Grand Jury Prize for acting in a dramatic film.

    Meanwhile, How to Die in Oregon, a documentary that takes a look at the legalization of physician-assisted suicide in Oregon and the lives of the terminally ill in that state, nabbed the documentary Grand Jury Prize.

    Another Earth, written and directed by Mike Cahill (King of California) was also a big winner at Sundance, taking home the coveted Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize, which recognizes an outstanding film that focuses on science or technology, and a Special Jury Prize for dramatic film.

    Another Happy Day, starring Demi Moore, Kate Bosworth and Ellen Barkin took home the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award, but, other buzzed-about films starring A-listers like Perfect Sense (Ewan McGregor) and Flypaper (Ashley Judd and Patrick Dempsey) surprisingly failed to make the mark.
