Dianne was honoured for her performance in In the Fade, the actress told the audience she was "overcome" and said "Thank you a thousand times." The German film follows a Hamburg woman played by Kruger, who seeks justice after her husband and son are murdered by a couple of Neo-Nazis.
Kruger and Jackson began dating in 2006, and went their separate ways last year. Since the split, Jackson has said that it's been hard to date after his time with Kruger. Meanwhile, the 40-year-old has been linked to her Sky co-star Norman Reedus in March.
