European Film Award nominations are in!

In-between all the American greats getting nomination after nomination, it’s nice to get a relaxing break from all the Hollywood thrills and spills to take a look at the successes of our often nobler, sometimes harder to understand European friends. That’s right, the nominations for the European Film Awards are officially done with. We’ll have more information on the winners as it becomes available but for now, since it’s the weekend, just have a quick look over the nominees as they stand. Recognisable names include Timothy Spall for Mr Turner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, Tom Hardy and Marion Cotillard, all of whom have acting nominations. So here’s the list, courtesy of Deadline:

European Discovery – FIPRESCI Prize

The odds are definitely in the favour of Pawel Pawlikowski’s Ida with five separate nominations. Steve McQueen is a name we’ve not seen since last year’s 12 Years a Slave  won over the Academy. Nicest surprise is most certainly Under The Skin’s Mica Levi for his innovative score for the science fiction thriller. The awards will take place at The Latvian National Opera house in Riga.

Who do you want to see take home the prize?
