BERLIN -- Oscar winners "The Queen," by Stephen Frears, and "The Last King of Scotland," by Kevin Macdonald as well as Paul Verhoeven's World War II thriller "Black Book" and Tom Tykwer's literary adaptation "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer" are among the nominees for this year's European Film Academy People's Choice Award.

This year's EFA People's Choice nominees run the gamut. Opulent period pieces such as "Perfume," Jiri Menzel's "I Served the King of England," Oliver Dahan's Edith Piaf biopic "La Vie En Rose" and Agustin Diaz Yanes' "Alatriste" will compete against Joachim Trier's minimalist drama "Reprise," Julie Delpy's directorial debut, "2 Days in Paris," and the Corneliu Porumboiu's Romanian dark comedy "12:08 East of Bucharest."

Beginning Saturday and ending Oct. 31, European citizens can vote for their favorite film at www.people'schoiceaward.org.

The winner of the 2007 EFA People's Choice Award will be announced at the European Film Awards in Berlin on Dec. 1. The main nominations for the 2007 European Film Awards will be announced at the Seville Film Festival on Nov. 3.
