The 2011 Guldbagge Awards (Sweden) - nominations

The Swedish Film Institute released the names of the nominees for the 2011 Guldbagge Awards. The Guldbagge ('Golden Beetle') Awards, which have been presented since 1964, are chosen by a jury of 34 members to honour the best in Swedish cinema.

The debut film Svinalängorna (Beyond) by Swedish actress Pernilla August leads with eight nominations including Best Film, Best Director and Best Actress for Noomi Rapace (best known in North America as the star of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). August competes against Rapace in the Best Actress race, as she herself was nominated for her turn in Miss Kicki. She is also nominated in the Best Screenplay category as the co-writer of Beyond.

Also nominated for Best Film are I rymden finns inga känslor (Simple Simon) and Babak Najafi's  Sebbe which took the prize for Best Debut Feature at the Berlin Film Festival.  They received four and three nominations, respectively. Till det som är vackert (Pure) also received three nominations.

The nominees for Best Foreign Language Film are Andrea Arnold's Fish Tank, Jessica Hausner's Lourdes, and The Social Network by David Fincher.

The Swedish Film Institute will announce the winners of the 2011 Guldbagge Awards on January 24 at a gala ceremony in Stockholm. Petra Mede will host the event.
