‘November’ nabs top prize, ‘The Favourite’ wins most, ‘Cold War’, ‘The Breadwinner’, ‘Utøya: July 22’ also win big – Film Honors 2018

Due to a late release here in the United Kingdom, well-known films such as Birds of Passage, and Capernaum will have to hang fire until next year. Sad, but there were plenty of films in 2018 that I got my teeth into – many of which I refused to let go of.

While The Favourite won 4, including Directing, it was the Estonian film November that took Motion Picture, with 3 in total. Cold War, The Breadwinner, and Utøya: July 22 each won 2. The winners and nominations are below:
