‘Titane’ and ‘The Hand of God’ Among Top Category Nominees for the European Film Awards

The European Film Academy have announced its nominations for the 34th European Film Awards. Whilst films such as The Hand of God and Compartment No. 6 are competing for the coveted top prize of European Film 2021, it is fellow competitor Titane that makes the big headline with four nominations. Alongside Julia Ducournau‘s latest film, Florian Zeller‘s double Oscar-winning film The Father and Best International Feature contender Quo Vadis, Aida? from Jasmila Zbanic also tied with four nominations.

This year’s line-up features many of the European contenders fighting for a Best International Film nomination this year, including The Worst Person in the World, Flee, and Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn. On top of that, other films from last year that got a nomination in this year’s European Film Awards include Promising Young Woman, Wolfwalkers, and The Mauritanian.

Last year, Another Round swept the top categories by taking home European Film, Director, Actor, and Screenplay. This year, it is very much possible that many of the European Film contenders could do just the same thing. In a packed year though, the European Film Academy may decide to spread the wealth among the nominees.

Check the full list of nominations below, and be sure to keep an eye out for the winners which will be announced in Berlin on December 11th.
