The official nominations list for the 2020 European Film Awards is out now. The European film academy just released it recently.

2020 European Film Awards – List of nominees

Movies like Another Round, Martin Eden, and Corpus Christi are currently leading the nominations. All three are competing under four categories each, including Best European Film honor of 2020.

This time, there are six contenders in the European Film section, compared to the traditional criteria. Previously, there were only five entries. The same is the case in the Documentary category as well.

Award functions affected by the pandemic

This year is severely hit by the pandemic and its inevitable global impact. Many popular and prestigious award ceremonies have been shifted to online mediums. And that’s very obvious to understand.

Even the 2021 Oscars are rumored to take place virtually in a new format. It will be the first time in the Academy awards that the event won’t happen traditionally.

Some of the music awards are exceptions, but mostly it’s all virtual now. Like the European Film Awards, BAFTA and Golden Globes will also turn into online editions.
