2012 Jussi-palkinto (Finnish Movie Awards) - nominations

Filmaura ry (Aura Film Society) of Finland has announced its nominations for the 66th Jussi-palkinto (Finnish Movie Awards).

Aki Kaurismäki's French-language Le Havre leads the field with 9 nominations. Its mentions include Best Picture, Director and Screenplay, all for Kaurismäki himself. Le Havre is Finland's submission this year to the Academy for Best Foreign Language Film.

Next with seven nominations each were Sakari Kirjavainen's Hiljaisuus (Silence) and Zaida Bergroth's Hyvä poika (The Good Son). Both were also nominated for Best Picture and Screenplay but Hiljaisuus missed in the Director category in favour of Taru Mäkelä for Varasto (The Storage).

The documentary nominees are Mia Halme's Ikuisesti sinun (Forever Yours), Markku Tuurna's Salla - Selling the Silence, and Elina Kivihalme's Tuntematon emäntä (The Unknown Woman). Last year's Best Documentary winners Miesten Vuoro (The Steam of Life) was Finland's submission to the Academy for Best Foreign Language Film.

The Jussi-palkinto were founded in 1944, and although they did not take place in 1960, 1961 and 1965 they are considered the oldest film awards in Europe.

The ceremony for the 66th Jussi-palkinto will be held on January 29 at the Kaapelitehdas in Helsinki.
