Russia’s academy for cinematic arts and sciences has announced the nominees for the Golden Eagle, the local equivalent to the Oscars.
Dmitry Meskhieyv’s Batalyon (Battalion), Sergei Mokritsky’s Bitva za Sevastopol (Battle for Sevastopol), Stanislav Govorukhin’s Konets prekrasnoy epokhi (End of a Splendid Epoch), Alexander Mindadze’s Mily Khans, dorogoi Pyotr (Lovely Hans, Dear Peter) and Anna Melikyan’s Pro lyubov (About Love) are competing for best film.
None of the nominated movies have taken part in a major international festival.
Pod elektricheskimi oblakami (Under Electric Clouds) by Aleksei German Jr., which was part of the official selection at Berlinale this year and collected the best cinematography award, didn’t earn any nominations.
Mokritsky, Govorukhin and Mindadze also were nominated in the best director category.
Yuri Arabov, the winner of the best screenplay award at Cannes in 1999, was nominated in the best screenplay category for the movie Kletka (Cage), alongside Mindadze and Andrei Zolotarev and Oleg Malovichko, the writers of the movie Prizrak (Ghost).
The winners will be announced at Moscow’s Mosfilm studio Jan. 29, 2016.
