BERLIN - Oscar champs The King's Speech and In a Better World, Berlin-set actioner Unknown from Spanish helmer Jaume Collet-Serra and 3D animation film Animals United are among the nominees for this year's European People's Choice Award. The honor is one of the European Film Awards, Europe's answer to the Oscars.

Other titles competiting for audience approval this year include Iciar Bollain's Even the Rain, starring Gael Garcia Bernal; the French features Potiche from Francois Ozon and Little White Lies by Guillaume Canet and Luca Miniero's Italian comedy Welcome To The South.
Previous European People's Choice Award winners include Roberto Benigni's Life is Beautiful, Pedro Almodovar's Volver and Slumdog Millionare from Danny Boyle. This year's winner will be announced at the 24th European Film Awards in Berlin Dec. 3.
