Pawel Pawlikowski‘s Cold War has snagged five (5) European Film Award nominations — best film, best director and screenwriter (Pawlikowski), best actress (Joanna Kulig) and best actor (Tomasz Kot). As the only Gold Derby member to include Kulig on my Best Actress list, I’m especially pleased to report her triumph. It’s also my humble opinion that Cold War should win the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar on 2.24.19.

HE picks in various categories: Best European FilmCold War. 1st runner-up: Alice Rohrwacher‘s Happy As Lazarro. 2nd runner-up: Lukas Dhont‘s Girl.
