Felix van Groeningen's "The Broken Circle Breakdown" led the nominations at the European Film Awards -- the continent's equivalent of the Oscars -- taking 5 nominations including European Film, European Director, European Actress (Veerle Baetens), European Actor (Johan Heldenbergh), and European Screenwriter (Carl Joos & Felix van Groeningen). Belgium's entry for the Academy Awards, "Broken Circle" was joined in the European Film category by Giuseppe Tornatore's "The Best Offer," Pablo Berger's "Blancanieves," Paolo Sorrentino's "The Great Beauty," Jan Ole Gerste's "Oh Boy!"and Adellatif Kechiche's "Blue is the Warmest Color." Rather bizarre is the inclusion of Kechiche's Palme d'Or winner, which had not been on the longlist of possible nominees back in September.  Clearly something changed between then and now, and while it's certainly deserving it's perhaps even more bizarre that the film gets nominations for both film and director but nothing for its actresses.
