The Best Picture was the little-seen Nina's Journey, a true story of one family's survival of the Warsaw ghetto in the Second World War. The film is a semi-documentary, with interviews with the main character, Nina Einhorn, recorded before she died in Sweden.

It was based on the novel written by Lena Einhorn, who also directed the film, and starred a cast of Polish actors.

Mum mot mun (Mouth to mouth), by Björn Runge, was nominated in seven categories but only managed to pick up one award, for best supporting actor.

The second-most nominated film of the year was the Swedish Oscar hope, Zozo, directed by Josef Fares. The film picked up four nominations but only the sound and score was recognised by the jury in a special award category.

Awarded annually since 1964, the Guldbagge ("Golden Beetle") is the name of the Swedish Film Institute's award for achievement during the previous year. The award itself, in the form of a fantasy beetle, was designed by the artist Karl Axel Pehrson.
