A trio of films – Another Round, Corpus Christi and Martin Eden – led the 33rd European Film Awards nominations today with four apiece. The shortlists for nominations were released in August.
Another Round was nominated for European Film, Director (Thomas Vinterberg), Actor for Mads Mikkelsen, and Screenwriter for Vinterberg and Tobias Lindholm. The film won the Audience Award at London Film Festival, and Best Actor at San Sebastian, which was shared by the film’s four leads. The film is set for release in the US by Samuel Goldwyn Films.

Christian Petzold’s Undine was nominated for two awards, European Film and European Actress for Paula Beer, who won the Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival.
Three directors landed in the European Director category despite their films not showing up in the top category: Agnieszka Holland for Charlatan, Maria Sødahl for Hope and François Ozon for Summer of 85. For Charlatan and Summer of 85 it was their film’s only nominations. On the flip side, the controversial film The Painted Bird earned a nomination for European Film, its only mention.
