Here are the nominees for Norway’s version of the Oscars, the Amanda Awards

The nominees for Norway’s Amanda Awards have been announced, with Thelma leading the way in terms of nominations.

Thelma, Joachim Trier’s leap into genre, leads the nominations with lead actress Eili Harboe nominated for best actress, and Trier for best director. The other two big nominees are Iram Haq’s What Will People Say and U-July 22 from Erik Poppe, both of which are up against Thelma for Best Film. Surprisingly, the World War II epic The 12th Man has been largely ignored in the nominations.

Which films do you think will win?
