Nominations // 32nd EUROPEAN FILMS AWARDS

Roman Polanski's An Officer and a Spy leads the nominees.



Polanski's Dreyfus affair drama earned four nominations for the 32nd European Film Awards, alongside Pedro Almodovar's Pain and Glory, Marco Bellocchio's The Traitor, and Yorgos Lanthimos' The Favourite. Though it has already ended its awards season cycle in America, The Favourite is up for multiple EFA's thanks to its different European release schedule.


All eyes will be on Polanski, who has recently returned to the front of accusations of rape against an actress in 1975. The European film industry has yet to fully turn away from Polanski since he fled the U.S. after another sexual misconduct accusation. In fact, the director swept the 2010 European Film Awards with The Ghost Writer.


Pain and Glory and Les Miserables are both at the forefront of potential Oscar season attention. Almodovar's drama could net Antonio Banderas an Oscar nomination for acting. And, Les Miserables is France's International Feature submission.


The European Film Awards celebrate world cinema. Winners will be announced at a ceremony in Berlin on December 7, 2019.
