Danish-Polish film nominated for Oscar
As expected, the Polish-Danish film ‘Ida’, which on Sunday lost out to Russian rival ‘Leviathan’ at the Golden Globes, has made the final shortlist for the 2014 Oscars.
Primarily produced by the Poles, the award for Best Foreign Language Film cannot be shared and will head back to Warsaw if collected. ‘Leviathan’ has also been nominated and is the favourite to win.
Meanwhile, another film with a strong Danish connection, ‘The Lego Movie’, was overlooked in the ‘Best Animated Feature Film’ category.
But the French-Israeli short film 'Aya', which starts Ulrich Thomsen in one of the two principal roles, has been shortlisted in the Best Live Action Short Film category.
This year's Oscars will take place on Sunday February 22.
