Zuzana Liová's Dom (The House) led the winners with six awards. It took Best Picture, Screenplay and all four acting awards for Actress Judit Bárdos, Actor Miroslav Krobot, Supporting Actress Taťjana Medvecká and Supporting Actor Marek Geišberg.
Martin Šulík's Cigán (Gypsy) also came away with six awards. It claimed Best Director as well as Cinematography, Editor, Sound, Original Score and Costume Design. In addition, Šulík won the Best Documentary prize with his film 25 zo šesťdesiatych alebo Československá nová vlna I. a II. (Golden Sixties) about the Czechoslovak New Wave which began with Slnko v Sieti (The Sun in a Net).
Although Peter Bebjak's Marhuľový ostrov (Apricot Island) was a strong contender with eight nominations, it came away empty-handed.
The award for Best Foreign Film went to Lars von Trier's Melancholia.
Actress and Academy President Emilia Vasaryova presented awards for Special Contribution to Slovak Cinema to screenwriter Eduard Grecner and cinematographer Tibor Biath. Biath was unable to attend for health reasons and his son accepted the award on his behalf.
