“Quo Vadis, Aïda? »Wins the best film – Complete list – Deadline


UPDATE: that of Jasmila Žbanić Quo Vadis, Aïda? was the big winner of the 34th European Film Awards ceremony tonight. The story of a woman’s fight to save her family during the real events of the Bosnian War Genocide in 1995 in Srebrenica won the first European Cinema Prize as well as the European Director’s Prize for Žbanić and the Actress European Union for Jasna Đuričić. (Scroll down for the full list of winners.)

Quo Vadis, Aïda? was nominated for an Oscar at the 93rd Academy Awards and its triumph tonight was indicative of the evolution of the European Film Academy this year. While AETs may be somewhat predictive of the Oscar for Best International Feature, tonight’s ceremony saw some crossover of the 2021 Oscars.

Other Oscar winners include Florian Zeller The father which repeated itself with victories for Anthony Hopkins as a European actor and for the screenplay by Zeller and Christopher Hampton.

The nods left this year’s international Oscar nominations in the cold, including that of Julia Ducournau Titanium (France), by Paolo Sorrentino God’s hand (Italy), Juho Kuosmanen’s Compartment n ° 6 (Finland), Radu Jude’s Bad Luck Banging Or Loony Porn (Romania) and that of Joachim Trier The worst person in the world (Norway).


However, gaining momentum, Jonas Poher Rasmussen’s project To flee (Denmark) won two awards at EFA tonight: European animated feature film and European documentary. He is shortlisted for both Oscar categories, as well as for International Feature Film.

Žbanić became the third woman to win the honor of directing at the EFA, and after winning the film’s first prize, she said: “The whole team is very grateful for such an incredible honor, all of our 10 co-producers of 10 European countries. This film is dedicated to the women and mothers of Srebrenica. Noting that during the conflict “sons, husbands and fathers – three generations of men” were “exterminated because of their names,” she added: “the women of Srebrenica find a way to build peace in a country completely destroyed; women still have to fix the mess made by the man. I dedicate this award to the women of Srebrenica and to the mothers who have taught us to turn destruction into love. I hope this will encourage more female solidarity, female stories, female perspective in movies, in politics and in life.

She continued, “Movies are a powerful force that can make us more compassionate, more understanding and more able to grasp the complexity of life. We have a responsibility to bring the truth to our audience. While it can be difficult, and not the most profitable, we need more complex stories in order to prepare our audience for a very complex time that lies ahead. ”

PREVIOUS 10:06 AM PST: The 34th European Film Awards are about to start in a hybrid format from Berlin. Overseen by the European Film Academy, the awards were initially scheduled to take place in a small, physical ceremony attended by nominees, but those plans changed earlier this month due to the increase in the number of Covids in Germany. Actress and writer Annabelle Mandeng is the host of the event, which will still air from the Arena Berlin studio and include live online and pre-produced elements. She will be joined by a handful of other presenters and award winners on the site.

Among the nominees, the Palme d’Or Cannes by Julia Ducournau, Titanium; Florian Zeller’s 2020 drama and double Oscar winner The father; and that of Jasmila Zbanic Quo Vadis, Aïda?, who was nominated for an Oscar in the 93rd edition, are tied with four mentions each coming into the evening.

Titanium is France’s candidacy for the Oscars this year and, likewise, several other contenders for the International Feature Academy Award at the EFAs. Among them, that of Paolo Sorrentino God’s hand and Juho Kuosmanen Compartment n ° 6, Italy and Finland, respectively. Each of these films, alongside the titles above, are nominated in the 2021 European Film category, and both feature in three races.

Last year Thomas Vinterberg Another round swept through AGEs, winning the award for Best European Film, Director, Actor and Screenwriter – before winning the Oscar for Best International Feature Film.
