Lars von Trier's The Boss Of It All was nominated in only two categories for two supporting actor and actress.
Three films secured three nominations each: Berlinale favourite A Soap from Pernille Fischer Christensen; Ole Christian Madsen's crossover box-office hit Prague starring Mads Mikkelsen; and Life Hits. The latter is a smaller-budget film that Christian E. Christiansen made independently before getting the support of the Danish Film Institute and distributors. The film, said to be in the running for a Berlinale slot, is about three badly behaved school girls. It has sold more than 100,000 tickets despite its humble beginnings.
