KINSEY director BILL CONDON has beaten out competition from CLINT EASTWOOD to walk away with the prestigious International Film Prize at the DIRECTORS GUILD OF GREAT BRITAIN awards last night (20MAR05).

Condon's biopic about sex scientist ALFRED KINSEY took home the top prize, leaving the OSCAR-winning MILLION DOLLAR BABY empty-handed.

Kinsey also beat MARTIN SCORSESE's THE AVIATOR and MIKE LEIGH's VERA DRAKE to the award.

British AMERICAN BEAUTY director SAM MENDES was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the second annual London event, despite being only 39.

A modest Mendes said, "I feel very undeserving. I feel the award is a bank loan, which I'll take out and pay back by the end of 20 years, and by then I'll feel more deserving."

WALTER SALLES' THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES won Best Foreign Language Film, while PAUL PAVLIKOVSKY's MY SUMMER OF LOVE and SHANE MEADOWS' DEAD MAN'S SHOES shared the Best British Film award.
