No Oscar for Norway, Swedes sail past / News / The Foreigner

No Oscar for Norway, Swedes sail past. ‘Kon-Tiki’ failed to get an Oscar at last night’s ceremony in Los Angeles. ‘Operation ‘Amour’ won for ‘Best Foreign Film’. As Ben Affleck-directed ’Operation Argo’ got the ‘Best Film’ award, and Michael Hanneke’s ‘Amour’ for ‘Best Foreign Film’, 85th Academy Awards winner ‘Lincoln’, starring Daniel Day-Lewis broke records by getting his third Oscar in Steven Spielberg’s film. Ang Lee won an Oscar for 'Best Director' for her 'Life of Pi'. Norway came away empty-handed. Scandinavian Oscar rival Sweden got three. 35-year-old filmmaker Malik Bendjelloul’s ‘Searching for Sugar Man’, produced by Britain’s Simon Chinn, won in the ‘best documentary’ class.

As Ben Affleck-directed ’Operation Argo’ got the ‘Best Film’ award, and Michael Hanneke’s ‘Amour’ for ‘Best Foreign Film’, 85th Academy Awards winner ‘Lincoln’, starring Daniel Day-Lewis broke records by getting his third Oscar in Steven Spielberg’s film. Ang Lee won an Oscar for 'Best Director' for her 'Life of Pi'.

Norway came away empty-handed. Scandinavian Oscar rival Sweden got three. 35-year-old filmmaker Malik Bendjelloul’s ‘Searching for Sugar Man’, produced by Britain’s Simon Chinn, won in the ‘best documentary’ class.

Then, Paul N.J. Ottosson, 47, was awarded an Oscar for ‘Best Sound Editing’ for historical drama film ‘Zero Dark Thirty’. 54-year-oldPer Hallberg was joint Academy Award-winner in this class for James Bond film ‘Skyfall’ together with Karen Baker Landers.

‘Kon-Tiki’, a cheerful film in comparison to Norway’s somewhat traditionally dark and gloomy ones, is the most expensive Norwegian film ever made.
