EUROPEAN FILM AWARDS 2005 - NOMINEES

Not surprisingly, many of the nominees for this year’s European Film Awards are familiar from the Cannes Festival, including Wim Wenders and Michael Haneke – but what is surprising is that Cannes winners Jean-Pierre & Luc Dardenne (L’Enfant) are not nominated for Best Director, although their film is in contention for Best European Film. Andrew L. Urban reports.

It’s not quite like the film that directed itself at the 1989 Oscars (Driving Miss Daisy, dir. Bruce Beresford) but the Dardenne brothers must be feeling the chilly wind of a minor snub for being omitted from the nomination list for this year’s Best European Director. Their film, L’Enfant, won the Palme d’Or at Cannes and is indeed in the running for an EFA come December, but their name is not in that other important category which delivers personal glory for the director, not to be shared with the producer/s. It’s no doubt small consolation that Marc Rothemund is also excluded from the directing category, while his film is up there competing for the top honour.

The European Film Academy (EFA) announced the nominations for the European Film Awards 2005 at the Seville Film Festival on November 6. The 1,600 EFA Members will now vote for the winners; trophies will be presented during the Awards Ceremony in Berlin on December 3.

In addition to the awards listed below, other awards presented during the Awards Ceremony include the international film critics award and the Jameson’s People’s Choice Awards for Actor, Actress and Director. Sean Connery will be honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award and composer Maurice Jarre will also be given a special award.
