2016 Guldbagge Awards Winners

Tonight was the awards ceremony and to the surprise of many the show centerpiece was a performance by David Hasselhoff! Nevertheless The Here After won two top awards, Best Film and Best Director, but is Drifters the film that got more awards (5) even when was not nominated for Best Film.

Most interesting is to find than from the great films in the foreign film category the winner is none other than Leviathan by Andrei Zvjagintsev.

Winners are in *BLUE. To check winners in all categories go official site here, available in Swedish but soon will also have an English article.  Winners in English can be found here.

To read nominees in other categories go official site here. If you wish to read nominations in English go here. Most interesting is the foreign film category as can you chose between Carol by Todd Haynes, Leviathan by Andrei Zvjagintsev and Timbuktu by Abderrahmane Sissako? Me, can't select one as believe those are three excellent movies with very different storytelling styles, each a winner in my book.
