Golden Globes-winning actress Rachel Weisz thanked a Cornish film producer for his part in the Constant Gardener.
Rachel Weisz: Best supporting actress at Golden Globes
Simon Channing-Williams from Marazion co-produced the film which won Weisz best supporting actress.
The Constant Gardener is the story of a British diplomat whose wife threatens to expose pharmaceutical companies testing drugs on Africans.
The awards, regarded as a curtain-raiser for the Oscars, took place in Los Angeles on Monday night.
Weisz praised the "great dignity and finesse" with which Mr Channing-Williams created a relationship with poor people in Kenya for the film.
The film has another Cornish connection in John le Carre, who lives in Zennor and penned the original novel.
