Though “Force Majeure” Was Snubbed at The Oscars, It Cleaned House at The Guldbagge Awards
(via The Hollywood Reporter)
Robert Östlund’s Force Majeure was hands down one of the best films we saw last year, regardless of its foreign status. Naturally, we weren’t fans of it not getting an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language Film a weeks ago.
However, Östlund has done quite well in his home country at Sweden’s Oscars known as The Guldbagge Awards winning six awards including Best Film and Best Director.
You can call it homefield advantage if you want, but Force Majeure deserves every award it has coming to it for how bleakly hilarious it is.
