Ruben Ostlund’s Triangle of Sadness swept Sweden’s Guldbagge Awards on Monday night, winning six prizes including best film and best director.
The satire also won best actress in a supporting role for Dolly de Leon, who recently secured a Bafta nomination for her performance as cleaner-turned-leader Abigail, and best actor in a supporting role for Croatian actor Zlatko Burić.
Sofie Krunegård won the best costume design prize and Stefanie Gredig won the best makeup award for their work on the film.
Triangle Of Sadness won the Palme d’Or at last year’s Cannes and is expected to pick up Oscar nominations, after securing three Bafta nods last week.
The Guldbagge (Golden Beetle) award for best actress went to Sigrid Johnson for her performance in Sanna Lenken’s Comedy Queen while best actor was won by Granit Rushiti for his debut role as the teenage version of Swedish soccer star Zlatan Ibrahimović in Jens Sjögren’s biopic I Am Zlatan.
Adam Berg’s Netflix action film Black Crab, starring Noomi Rapace and Jakob Oftebro, won three awards in the technical categories for best cinematography (Jonas Alarik), best visual effects (Simon Sandrin) and best set design (Linda Janson).
Best screenplay went to Tarik Saleh for Cairo Conspiracy (released as Boy From Heaven in Sweden), which is Sweden’s entry for the best international feature Oscar and made the shortlist.
