European Film Awards 2009

It's looking like a mixture of Cannes 2009 and Oscars 2008 will dominate, with Lars Von Trier’s Antichrist (2009), Michael Haneke’s The White Ribbon (2009) and Pedro Almodóvar’s Broken Embraces (2009) joining Stephen Daldry’s The Reader (2008), Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire (2008) and forty-one other films in the running for the 2009 European Film Awards. Twenty-five countries are represented between the films, and, in the weeks ahead, the 2,000 members of the European Film Academy will vote for the nominations in the different award categories, with the nods to be announced on 7 November at the Sevilla European Film Festival in Spain. The awards ceremony will take place at Germany’s Ruhr Metropolis on 12 December.
