The Norwegian film, “Verdens Verste Menneske”, did not win any BAFTA awards at the annual ceremony in London last night.

Nominated for two awards but failed to win any

Despite its recent success in New York, Cannes, and potentially in Hollywood soon, “Verdens Verste Menneske” (The Worst Person in The World) failed to win any awards at the British Academy Film Awards ceremony in London. The film, directed by Joachim Trier, was nominated for two awards: “Best Non-English Language Film” and the “Best Actress” award for Renate Reinsve.

However, the critically acclaimed Norwegian drama-comedy about modern love lost out to the Japanese film, “Drive My Car” whilst Renate Reinsve was pipped by Joanna Scanlan for her role in “After Love.” The other big winners were Jane Campion’s gripping Western, “Power of The Dog” which won “Best Film” whilst Will Smith won “Best Actor” for his role as Serena and Venus Williams father in “King Richard”.

The final award ceremony of the season, and some would argue the biggest, is the Oscars in Los Angeles, taking place soon on March 28. The film has been nominated in the “International Feature Film” category. The current Minister of Culture, Anette Trettebergstuen, will be among others cheering on the film as part of a cultural business trip organized by the government.
