The nominees for the German Film Prize have been chosen. One of the favorites is the drama “Dear Thomas” with Albrecht Schuch in the leading role with twelve nominations. But Sönke Wortmann and Andreas Dresen can also hope for a prize.
The nominations for the German Film Prize 2022 were announced by Minister of State for Culture Claudia Roth, the presidential duo of the German Film Academy, Alexandra Maria Lara and Florian Gallenberger, and the film prize ambassadors Lea van Acken and Maria Ehrich in the cinema in Berlin’s KulturBrauerei.
Hopes for the most renowned and most valuable award for German film can therefore be made, among other things: The biopic “Lieber Thomas” about the writer and filmmaker Thomas Brasch by director Andreas Kleinert emerged as the winner of the nominations. In total, the film drama could collect a whopping twelve awards, including “Best Feature Film”, for “Best Director”, “Best Screenplay” and Albrecht Schuch could win Lola for “Best Male Leading Role”.
Dresen and Kaptan can also hope
Hot on its heels is the German-French feature film “Rabiye Kurnaz vs. George W. Bush”, which deals with the legal dispute of an illegally imprisoned Guantanamo prisoner. The film garnered ten nominations. The Austro-German prison and gay drama “Grosse Freiheit”, set in the post-war period, still has eight chances to win. Both films are also nominated in the main categories. Meltem Kaptan and Franz Rogowski could skim the actor awards.
“Contra”, “Spencer” and “Wonderful” are also in the running for “Best Film”. Leander Haußmann’s “Stasi comedy”, which will be released in cinemas next week, could assert itself in four categories and “No one is with the calves” in three.
Two Lola winners have already been chosen: Cameraman Jürgen Jürges will be honored with the honorary award for outstanding services to German film. The Lola for the “most popular film” goes to the children’s film “The School of Magical Animals”, which was seen by over 1.7 million viewers in the cinema. The film has also been nominated in two other categories. The German Film Prize will be awarded on June 24th in the Palais am Funkturm in Berlin.
