Denmark's Bodil Prizes: 'Nympho-maniac', 'The Hunt' Lead Nominations

bodilIn an effort to promote their Bodil Awards, Danish film critics undressed and swooned in a Nymphomaniac-styled poster ahead of the holidays. Turns out it wasn’t just a prime photo-op, they also really liked the movie. Lars von Trier‘s well-reviewed sex drama has been nominated for six Bodils, Denmark’s answer to the Oscar. It’s the most-nominated film along with Thomas Vinterberg’s The Hunt, which has been shortlisted for the Foreign Language Oscar. Both are vying for Best Picture, along with Michael Noer’s Northwest, Nils Malmros’ Sorrow And Joy and Denmark’s No. 1 box office hit The Keeper Of Lost Causes, directed by Mikkel Nørgaard. Nymphomaniac also picked up nods for stars Charlotte Gainsbourg, Uma Thurman, Stacy Martin, Stellan Skarsgård and Jamie Bell. The Hunt‘s Mads Mikkelsen is nominated in the lead actor category; he won the top acting prize in Cannes for the film back in 2012. Other mentions for The Hunt include actors Anne-Louise Hassing, Susse Wold (in her first role after 27 years away from film), Lars Ranthe and Thomas Bo Larsen. The Bodil prize ceremony will be held on February 1st in Copenhagen. The full, uncut, version of Nymphomaniac world premieres at the Berlin Film Festival later in the month. The full list of nominees is on the next page:

  1. That’s awesome, seeing both Von Trier and Vinterberg created the Dogme 95 Manifest.

    THE HUNT was a great film — loved Mads! Can’t wait for the sexfest of NYMPHOMANIAC.
