Just as the bookies predicted, there were no Danish celebrations at yesterday’s Oscars, unless you count the producers of ‘Ivalu’, who were nominated for Live Action Short Film and were just happy to be there.
“We are happy to be nominated together with the year’s best film. Now we’re partying with the team and are happy to be here,” confessed ‘Ivalu’ producer Rebecca Pruzan, according to DR.
Along with ‘Ivalu’ two other Danish nominees – ‘A House Made of Splinters’ (Documentary feature film) and Mikkel EG Nielsen (Best editing), this time for ‘Banshees of Insherin’ after his triumph in 2021 for ‘Sound of Metal’ ‘ – both also missed.
DFI: Denmark unlucky
“It is particularly unfortunate with two films that tell such important stories about Greenland [Ivalu] and Ukraine [A House Made of Splinters] for not winning,” said the head of the Danish Film Institute, Claus Ladegaard, after the ceremony according to DR.
“But I am happy and proud that we have been nominated again this year in two categories.”
‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ dominated the awards, winning seven statuettes, becoming only the third film in history to win three acting awards, following ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’ in 1952 and ‘Network’ in 1977.
