This evening, Noomi Rapace was awarded Best Actress for “Babycall” at the Amandaprisen, the Nordic Film Awards. “Babycall”, having received a total of seven nominations, also won Best Director Pal Sletaune. Kristofer Jonner, Noomi’s co-star in the film, was awarded Best Actor, although not for “Babycall” – for which he had received a supporting actor nomination – but for his leading performance in “Kompani Orheim”. Pictures from the awards ceremony have been added to the photo gallery with more to come.
Over 900 DVD screencaptures of Noomi’s performance in the Norwegian thriller “Babycall” have been added to the photo gallery. My most sincere thanks to Alex for guiding the film to me. Thanks! Please note that these screencaptures feature spoilers, so if you haven’t seen the film, browse them at your own risk. Enjoy the new screencaptures.
