Horror thriller 13 Beloved received two nods including best actor for Krissada Sukosol Clapp and best editing while Thailand 's first 3D animation Khan Kluay won best music score.

Despite multiple nominations, Wisit Sasanatieng's Unseeable was largely overlooked with only one win for best art direction while Pen-ek Ratanaruang's Invisible Waves and Nithiwat Tharatorn's Seasons Change walked away empty-handed.
