HAUGESUND (Dagbladet): Saturday evening is the scene of the film industry’s most prestigious awards gala, where 22 Amanda Awards for the best in the industry will be awarded.
The award ceremony is held at the Festiviteten in Haugesund. Although it will be a rainy evening, movie stars are ready to pay tribute to the Norwegian film industry.
Rinat Rensvi (34) and Anders Danielsen Lee (43) arrive on the red carpet together. They have taken over the world with The Worst Person in the World, which could win up to 11 awards tonight.
Renzvi and Lee have been nominated for ‘Best Actress’ and ‘Best Male Supporting Actor’ respectively.
– I’m not too tense. It’s great to be with people you know well, and I was nominated with very nice people.
Renseve won international attention for the character “Julie” from the Oscar-nominated film, and she also starred in her first American film.
There is so much that is alike, and there is so much that is so different. I think it’s great to be back in Norway, and I think there’s a lot of exciting things going on in the Norwegian movie.
Else Kåss Furuseth (42), Lise Fjeldstad (83), Bente Erichen (73) and Ingeborg Heldal (49) participated in the distribution together. They were all honored with their awards tonight.
Jan Gunnar Roses, 46, was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for “Full Coverage.”
Pål Sverre Hagen, 41, was nominated for ‘Best Male Actor’ for ‘The Middle Man’, as well as his role in ‘Alle hater Johan’ was nominated for several awards.
– There is a tense atmosphere here and this affects the situation a little. I would also like to say that there is a growing sense of teamwork in this industry, and we are working towards the same goal of making things that you think are fun to try, Hagen told Dagbladet.
Earlier today, Hagen was awarded a stone at the “Haugesund Walk of Fame”. Anneke von der Lippe (58), Bjørn Floberg (74) and Marie Blokhus (39) were honored with each Amanda stone.
– always nervous
The day before the awards ceremony, the evening’s director, Odd-Magnus “Odda” Williamson, 41, was able to tell Dagbladet that industry audiences should expect to be questioned.
– But when it rings a little, it happens that you involuntarily hit some nerve that you didn’t mean to hit, or a double meaning you didn’t know, so I’m always nervous. If I burn some bridges, I hope to build some new ones, said Williamson, laughing.
In addition to being responsible for leading the evening show, Williamson’s comedy-drama “Nothing to Laugh About” was nominated for an Amanda Award. Sarah Khormi (35 years) was nominated for “Best Supporting Female Role”.
This is the first time that Khurmi has been nominated for an Amanda Award.
– It feels so good, because it was a really great project to be a part of. Thanks to a totally crazy person, a great script, and a crazy co-star, I told Dagbladet and references Williamson.
