‘Cloud Atlas’ Tops Nominations For Germany’s Lola Awards

The German Film Academy has announced the nominees for this year’s Lola Awards, the local equivalent to the Oscars. The largely German-financed Cloud Atlas leads the pack with nine nods including Best Film and Best Director(s). Andy and Lana Wachowski and local son Tom Tykwer helmed the sprawling and divisive fantasy that stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant and a host of others. Oh Boy, a tragicomic portrait of a young man by Jan Ole Gerster, scored eight nominations and Margareth von Trotta’s biopic Hannah Arendt, which screened in Toronto, has six. Also figuring on the list is Australia’s entry for the foreign-language Oscar this year, Lore. Cate Shortland’s German-language drama has four mentions including Best Picture. The Lolas will be handed out April 26 in Berlin. Click over for a full list of nominees: (more…)
