Sweden: 3 films dominate local awards

Three films stand to win in the upcoming Guldbagges, Sweden's annual cinema awards: Tomas Alfredson’s black comedy "Four Shades of Brown", first-time film maker Maria Blom’s comedy drama "Dalecarlians" and last year’s biggest local box office success, Kay Pollak’s "As It Is in Heaven". All three are notably in the race for the "Best Screenplay" award. This leaves two critical successes out in the cold: Lukas Moodysson's "A Hole in my Heart" and Teresa Fabik's teenage drama "The Ketchup Effect (Hip-Hip Hora!)".
