Renate Reinsve, the star of the hit Norwegian movie, Verdens Verste Menneske (The Worst Person in The World), has been nominated for the “Best Actress” award for the upcoming British Film and Television Awards (BAFTA)

Further praise for Norwegian hit movie, Reinsve

Renate Reinsve’s career-defining role in Verdens Verste Menneske has gained further praise as she has received a nomination for the “Best Actress” award by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.

Fresh off her recent triumph in Cannes, Reinsve was thrilled by the BAFTA nomination. Speaking to the newspaper VG, Reinsve felt that “it feels surreal and absolutely fantastic to be nominated for a BAFTA. It is a great honor, it means a lot”. Reinsve will hope to add to her award from Cannes but will face stiff competition from Lady Gaga for her role in Ridley Scott’s “House of Gucci”.

As is the case with the main star, praise keeps flowing for the movie itself, which was also nominated for the “Best Non-English Language Film” BAFTA. Andrea B. Ottmar, one of the producers behind the hit, said that the BAFTA nominations were “a fantastic honor, for Renate, Joachim (director Joachim Trier), and the whole team. It has been an incredible journey for us so far, and that the film hits so well internationally makes us extremely happy. It is a great recognition.”

The BAFTA awards are handed out at a glitzy London ceremony on March 13.
