Låt den rätte komma in (Let the Right One In), Tomas Alfredson, Sweden
Maria Larssons eviga ögonblick (Maria Larsson’ Everlasting Moment), Jan Troell, Sweden

To check the nominees and winners in all the categories go here available only in Danish.

I imagine that many of you are surprised, as me, to find Vicky Cristina Barcelona competing against Juno, No Country For Old Men, There Will Be Blood and The Dark Knight, isn’t strange? I find this category absolutely interesting, but not that hard to define my vote. But the most interesting and difficult has to be the foreign film category.

The awards ceremony will be on March 1st.
