Keira Knightley, Naomi Watts and 'Blue is the Warmest Color' are nominated
Best European Director
Giuseppe Tornatore, "The Best Offer"
Pablo Berger, "Blancanieves"
Abdellatif Kechiche, "Blue is the Warmest Color"
Felix van Groeningen, "The Broken Circle Breakdown"
Paolo Sorrentino, "The Great Beauty"
François Ozon, "In the House"
Though this category is distinguished by Ozon's well-deserved 'lone director' inclusion, I think thing break down pretty much the same way here as they do for Best European Film. So, moving swiftly on...
