Millennium's Rapace tops Guldbagge nominations

Other big names receiving nods for the Guldbagge Awards include Pernilla August, who won recognition in the director, actress and screenplay categories for two different films, and The Social Network, which chronicles the origins of Facebook, for best foreign-language film.

Feature film debutants and female producers dominated the Guldbagge nominations for Swedish films from last year.

Beyond (Svinalängorna) received eight nominations, Simple Simon (I rymden finns inga känslor) starring Bill Skarsgård received four and the critically acclaimed Sebbe and Pure (Till det som är vackert) received three each.

A 34-member jury voted by secret ballot on the three nominations for each of the 12 awards.

Up for the best film prize are Simple Simon, Sebbe and the August-directed Beyond. August was also nominated in the screenplay category for the film in collaboration with Lolita Ray.

In addition, she was honoured in the best actress category for her role in the gay-themed Swedish-Taiwanese co-production Miss Kicki, helmed by Norwegian-Taiwanese director Håkon Liu.

For the best actress award, August faces Rapace in Beyond and Alicia Vikander in Pure. In the best actor category, the younger Skarsgård faces Sebastian Hiort af Ornäs in Sebbe and Easy Money's (Snabba Cash) Joel Kinnaman.

The movie will get the Hollywood treatment later this year in a still-untitled English-language remake, with actor Zac Efron rumoured to star in and produce the new version.

For best supporting actor, Rapace's Millennium co-star David Dencik won a nod for his role in Cornelis, a biopic about Swedish-Dutch troubadour Cornelis Vreeswijk.

He is the only actor from the original trilogy to land a part in the English-language remake, in which he will play a different role. Dencik is up against Peter Dalle for his role in Behind Blue Skies (Himlen är oskyldigt blå), which also stars Skarsgård.

Films vying for the documentary prize include Familia, Kiss Bill (Så nära) and Regretters (Ångrarna). For best foreign-language film, The Social Network is up against Fish Tank and Lourdes.

Three additional awards will be handed out for best achievements in other fields that do not have prizes, as well as an award of honour, the Gullspira for extraordinary contributions in films for children and the audience award.

The ceremony will be held January 24th at Stockholm's Cirkus and broadcast live on SVT.

Awarded annually since 1964, the Guldbagge, or Golden Beetle, is the Swedish Film Institute's award for achievements in film from the previous year. The beetle-shaped award was designed by Swedish sculptor Karl Axel Pehrson.
