Previously, Thomas Vinterberg has received a Bodil Prize for the films “The Party” and “The Hunt”.
But that’s not the only honor the team behind “Druk” can take home from the awards party.
Together with Tobias Lindholm, Thomas Vinterberg also receives the award for Best Screenplay, and then Mads Mikkelsen receives the statuette for Best Male Lead. This is the third time he has received that award.
– We are happy that it is the deeply recognizable and gifted depictions of Danish men that keep knocking their legs off under everyone. And we look forward to him continuing the dance with Danish film, it sounded in the motivational speech from the bodil committee.
The Danish superstar is not present at the Folketeatret in Copenhagen, where the award party takes place, but sends a video greeting.
On the other hand, Sidse Babett Knudsen is in the hall, where she receives her third Bodil Prize for her supporting role as a tough mafia matriarch in “Flesh and Blood”.
In return, the actor Lars Brygmann can enjoy his very first Bodil Prize. He gets it for his supporting role in Anders Thomas Jensen’s action comedy “The Riders of Justice”.
In the category Best Female Lead, the feature film debutant and only 13-year-old actress Kaya Toft Loholt is honored. She thus breaks the record as the youngest recipient of the award ever.
She receives the award for her role as the daughter Emma, whose father jumps out as a trans woman.
The film is based on screenwriter and director Malou Reymann’s own experiences. She can look forward to receiving the Arbejdernes Landsbank Talent Award for her work.
The Bodil Prize is Denmark’s oldest film prize and was awarded for the first time in April 1948.
