Oscar-nominated The Hunt (Jagten), from Danish director Thomas Vinterberg, added to its growing pile of trophies at the Danish Film Critics Association’s Bodil Awards on Saturday (Feb 1).
After collecting six Robert Awards from the Danish Film Academy last week, it picked up four Bodil statuettes at the annual ceremony at Copenhagen’s Bremen Theatre.
The jury called the feature “an exquisite gem of a film,” which clocked up 672,512 admissions and was ranked second overall at the Danish box office charts in 2013.
It picked up Best Feature, Best Actor for Mads Mikkelsen, Best Supporting Actress for Susse Wold and Best Cinematography for Charlotte Bruus Christensen.
Mikkelsen, who plays a teacher wrongfully accused of child abuse in The Hunt, accepted his award via a video message in which he said: “Thanks to the Bodil committee, to my fantastic team of actors, especially the children.
“Thomas Vinterberg, it is only because of you I am sitting here.”
Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac, which was nominated in six cateogies, managed to win one for Best Actress Charlotte Gainsbourg.
Also competing for Best Feature, each with three nominations, Michael Noer’s Northwest (Nordvest) and Mikkel Nørgaard’s The Keeper of Lost Causes (Kvinden i buret) won for Best Supporting Actor (Roland Møller) and the Henning Bahs Award for set designer Rasmus Thjellesen, respectively.
