by Nathaniel R

Hungary's weird and wonderful ON BODY AND SOUL keeps collecting kudosOne of our favorite undersung awards bodies is back.The European Film Awards,a hodgepodge of vastly different cinemas that sometimes has surprising results,have released their nominations for 2017.As per usual they're the awards body with the most in common withOscar's Foreign Language Film racewith many of their nominees being submissions this year from their respective countries.As such it's worth noting that Hungary's dreamscape slaughterhouse romantic oddity OnBody and Souland the Palme D'or winning Swedish satireThe Squareare both looking strong heading into the Oscar race;they lead the field here,each with four nominations.Russia'sLovelessand the latest Yorgos Lanthimos provocationThe Killing of a Sacred Deerare just behind them with three nominations,though the latter was a miss in the top category for Best European Film where France's masterful ACT UP dramaBPM (Beats Per Minute --currently in release in the US -- why is noone seeing it?It's brilliant!--  struck instead.

The ceremony moves each year and this time it will be hosted in Berlin,Germany on December 9th.Full set of nominees (links go to our reviews) including a France heavy Best Actress list are after the jump...
