European Film Awards Nominations: ‘Cold War’, ‘Dogman’, ‘Border’ Lead – Full List

Cold War
Amazon Studios

Nominations are in for the 31st European Film Awards with previous winner Pawel Pawlikowski’s Cold War leading the pack. The romance drama won the Best Director prize in Cannes and Pawlikowski is up here for the same nod. Cold War, Poland’s Oscar hopeful this year, is also mentioned in the Best Film, Screenwriting, Actress and Actor categories.

Joining Cold War in the main race are a series of Oscar entries for the Best Foreign Language Film statue. They include Sweden’s wild Border from Ali Abbasi, Italy’s Dogman from Matteo Garrone and Belgium’s Girl by Lukas Dhont. The latter won the Camera d’Or in Cannes for best first film, and also scored the Best Performance nod in the Un Certain Regard section for lead Victor Polster who received a nomination today from the European Film Academy. Netflix acquired Girl for North and Latin America out of the festival.

Border, the Cannes Un Certain Regard laureate, and Dogman which won Best Actor in Cannes, received four total mentions today. So did the final Best European Film nominee Happy As Lazzaro from Alice Rohrwacher, although that movie is not an Oscar entry this year. Rohrwacher won the screenplay prize in Cannes and is also up for an EFA as director and screenwriter.

Domestically, Neon has Border; Dogman is with Magnolia; Cold War is an Amazon title; and Happy is with Netflix.

The European Film Academy has been somewhat predictive of the Foreign Language Oscar in recent years including for such winners as Ida, The Great Beauty and Amour. Last year’s winner was Ruben Ostlund’s The Square which went on to an Oscar nomination, but did not take the ultimate prize — Sebastian Lelio’s A Fantastic Woman, did. The EFA ceremony will be held on December 15 in Seville.
