2007 European Film Awards Nominees Listed
Stephen Frears-directed drama "The Queen" tops the list with six nominations, including that for best picture slot.


The "European Oscar" is about to roll once again now that the European Film Academy officially announced contenders for its European Film Awards this year on Saturday, November 3, 2007 at the Seville Film Festival.

Selecting a number of acclaimed titles and names, the Academy gives special attention to British royal family drama "The Queen" by granting it six nods in total, thereby putting the flick on top of the list. Nominations given included those of best picture, best actress for Helen Mirren, and best director for Stephen Frears.

For the best picture title, however, the movie has to face against such strong competitors like "The Last King of Scotland", Cannes' Palme d'Or winner "4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days", Olivier Dahan's "La Vie en Rose", and French animated feature "Persepolis", which just won BFI Sutherland Trophy at 51st London Film Festival.

Mirren, in the meantime, gets challenged by "Rose" star Marion Cotillard and Carice van Houten of "Black Book" with Frears being lined up alongside Cristian Mungiu and Kevin Macdonald, helmer of "2 Days" and "Scotland", respectively. The latter film turns out to also submit its male cast member James McAvoy to compete in best actor category, where Ben Whishaw of "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer" is also nominated.

Winners will be revealed at the awards ceremony held on December 1, 2007 in Berlin based on votes made by the 1,800 EFA Members. Full list of nominees can be viewed on the Academy's official site, Europeanfilmacademy.org.
