news ‘Triangle of Sadness’ Sweeps the European Film Awards (Full Winners List)

It’s a big weekend for awards watchers, with the Los Angeles Film Critics Association set to announce its annual film awards throughout the day on Sunday. But Americans aren’t the only ones having fun. The European Film Awards, which honor the best European-produced films of 2022, took place on Saturday at the Harpa concert hall in Reykjavík, Iceland. The awards are voted on by the European Film Academy, which currently has over 4,400 voting members.

The nominees were heavy on festival favorites, including Ruben Östlund’s Palme d’Or-winning “Triangle of Sadness” and other Cannes hits like Lukas Dhont’s “Close” and Ali Abbasi’s “Holy Spider.” Those films led the pack with four nominations a piece, though Marie Kreutzer’s “Corsage” is close behind with three nominations of its own. With several of those films trying to sneak into the Oscar conversation, Europe’s biggest award show is an early opportunity to see how the international film community views these movies.

“Triangle of Sadness” ended up being the night’s biggest winner, taking home trophies in almost all of the major categories. The wealth satire won Best European Film while Östlund won European Director and European Screenwriter. Zlatko Burić also won European Actor for his performance as the “Russian capitalist” Dimitry.
