    Absolutely. Now that it got nominated at the EFAs and British Independent Film Awards, hopefully it can at least be a dark horse for Best Original Screenplay.

    ^ Ha! Never gonna happen!

    But I like these noms. Interesting 45 Years didn’t get in for Film or Director. Also was Son of Saul not eligilble? Surprised not to see it here.

    Early (and no doubt foolish) winner predix:

    Film: Pigeon
    Director: Andersson
    Actor: Lindon
    Actress: Rampling
    Screenplay: Difficult, but I’m gonna say The Lobster
    Doc: The Look of Silence
    Discovery: Mustang
    Comedy: Pigeon
    Animated: Adama

    Some terrific nominees!

    I wonder if these guys can forward some pointers across the pond?

    I’m a bit sad of no Jessica Chastain, and especially Samantha Morton for “Miss Julie”. Both were incredible in a shitty film.

    Jessica Chastain wasn’t eligible. She has no European connection. The only American actor to be nominated in EFA history is Kirsten Dunst and that was allowed because her father is German.

    Just found out from Variety that Son of Saul was indeed never entered for contention due to “a disagreement over screener distribution”. A minor setback, maybe, considering how buzz for Amour, The Great Beauty and Ida benefited somewhat from the EFAs.

    To be honest, I’m a bit disappointed. Youth was quite good but nowhere near the level of Sorrentino’s previous film The Great Beauty, or indeed anything that’s won the top prize since Melancholia. A Pigeon Sat on a Branch deserved it so much more. If only Son of Saul had been eligible, it could have swept the floor with Youth.

    So happy for Charlotte Rampling! And I’m gonna see the movie in couple of days! Cannot freaking wait!

    ‘Youth’ was overawarded. Like three awards too much.
