Pawel Pawlikowski’s Ida leads the field for the 27th European Film Awards with five major nominations including Best European Film, Director, two Best Actress nods for co-leads Agata Trzebuchowska and Agata Kulesza, and Best Screenplay.
Close behind are Russian director Andrey Zvyagintsev‘s Leviathan and Turkey’s Palme d’Or winner Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s Winter Sleep, a pair of Cannes winners. Both films have been chosen to represent their country in the Academy Awards foreign language category.
The European Film Awards has increasingly become a bellwether for awards season, with previous EFA Best European Film winners Paolo Sorrentino’s The Great Beauty and Michael Haneke’s Amour going on to win the Best Foreign Language film at the Oscars.
Marion Cotillard, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Tom Hardy, Stellan Skarsgard and Timothy Spall are among the acting nominees.
