“Another Round” Wins Big at the 2020 European Film Awards

Mads Mikkelsen in "Another Round"

Danish drama Another Round premiered to rave reviews at the Toronto International Film Festival, and it was just a matter of time before major awards started coming its way. That moment is here, as this film was crowned as the major winner at the European Film Awards.

Another Round sees Mads Mikkelsen joining forces with the acclaimed filmmaker Thomas Vinterberg. They previously worked together on the poignant drama The Hunt from 2012, which led Mikkelsen to the best actor win at the Cannes Film Festival.

Judging by its triumph at the European Film Awards, Another Round could even exceed the success of their previous collaboration. In addition to winning the award for best film, it also came out victorious in the categories of best director, best actor, and best screenwriter.

The 33rd European Film Awards were supposed to take place in Reykjavík, Iceland on December 12th, before shifting to a virtual format on that same date. Before the ceremony took place, Another Round has already been picked as the Danish entry for the best international feature film at the upcoming Academy Awards.
