'Leviathan,' 'Winter Sleep,' 'Nymphomaniac' Among European Film Awards Nominees

'Winter Sleep'

Marion Cotillard, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Tom Hardy, Stellan Skarsgard and Timothy Spall are among the acting nominees

Turkey’s Cannes Palme d’Or winner Winter Sleep, from Nuri Bilge Ceylan, Russian festival favorite and foreign-language Oscar nominee Leviathan from Andrei Zvyagintsev and Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac Director’s Cut are among the five nominees for the best European film honor at this year's European Film Awards.

Also competing for the 27th annual award will be Pawel Pawlikowski’s Ida, which got the most nominations in major categories, and Force Majeure from Sweden's Ruben Ostlund.

In the past two years, the winner of the best picture honor at the European Film Awards went on to win the Oscar for best foreign-language film. In 2014, that was Italy's The Great Beauty, following Austria's Amour the year before.
