Keira Knightley, Naomi Watts and 'Blue is the Warmest Color' are nominated
FIPRESCI Prize for Best European Discovery
"Eat Sleep Die"
An interesting slate of first-time filmmakers: I'm particularly pleased to see Italian actress Valeria Golino nominated for her elegant, moving directorial debut, the morally surprising euthanasia drama "Honey," and Mikael Marcimain for "Call Girl," an involving tale of a 1970s Swedish sex scandal that plays much like a Scandi "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy." Given, however, that German director Jan Ole Gerster's "Oh Boy!," a spry, stylish comedy of hipster ennui, is the only Film of the Year nominee in the category, it should score a win here.
Will win: "Oh Boy!"
Should win: (of four seen) "Call Girl"
