Last Saturday night Denmark's National Association of Film Critics had their award ceremony and the big winner of the night is I Blodet (In the Blood) as won the top award plus Victoria Carmen won Supporting Actress. But Forældre (Parents) by actor-turned-director Christian Tafdrup leads with four awards.
Last year the award went to Under Sandet (Land of Mine) which was not their Oscar submission but strangely enough became Denmark's submission to 2017 Oscars and as we know, film got a nomination. So, have to wonder what will happen next year, will I Blodet become country's submission to Oscar?
