by Tom Clarke
In the closing ceremony at the 2013 National Theatre, in a display of the UK’s exceptional international theatre, actor Neil Patrick Harris won the most prestigious award in British journalism – the Wissenschaftliche Würdigung in Berlin. Harris won the award for his role as a police하하 포커 chief in a drama which won the Berlin Film Festival’s Golden Lion Award for drama in 2001, the same year that he became the first British actor to win the highest award at the Berlin Film Festival for a drama since Walter Hill won his Hugo for Best Supporting Actor in 1999.

He was one of just two people to win the award, with the other winner being the New York Times journalist Judith Miller, who received it in 1994 for her account of the American invasion of Afghanistan in the wake of 9/11.
Now that Dr. Jonas and Dr. Hofmann are on stage, John Pilger has written about the British Academy’s decision to award the award, and asked those present and to those watching to consider how they see it.
