Toni Erdmann was the most-nominated film of the day with five, also picking up directing, screenplay and acting nominations for Sandra Hüller and Peter Simonischek.

The 2016 Cannes Palme d’Or winner I, Daniel Blake was next with four and Elle and Julieta walked away with three nominations apiece. Room, which won the Best Actress Oscar for Brie Larson earlier this year, was also nominated for its screenplay, written by Emma Donoghue. As the European Film Awards are only open to European citizens, Larson was not eligible here.
