As expected, Michael Haneke's "Amour" swept the European Film Awards, winning four trophies: Best Picture, Director, Actor (Jean Louis Trintignant) and Actress (Emmanuelle Riva). Early on, it had led the contest with the most nominations, losing the prizes for screenplay to "The Hunt" (Denmark) and cinematography to "Shame" (U.K.) Haneke is a longtime darling of these kudos, having previously swept the awards for Best Picture, Director and Screenplay for "The White Ribbon" (2009) and "Hidden" (2005).

This year "Amour" prevailed as Best Picture over "Barbara" (Germany), "Caesar Must Die" (Italy), "The Hunt" (Denmark), "Intouchables" (France)and "Shame" (United Kingdom).

In all, 47 films competed for honors. Surprising omissions from this year's list of nominees included two notable snubs in the lead actress lineup: Marion Cotillard ("Rust and Bone") and Cannes Film Festival champs Cannes Cosmina Stratan and Cristina Flutur ("Beyond the Hills"). The Venice festival's Best Actor Mikkel Boe Folsgaard ("A Royal Affair") was also left out.
