Pedro Almodovar’s ‘Volver’, Jasmila Zbanic’s ‘Grbavica’, Florian Henckel Von Donnersmarck’s ‘The Lives Of Others’ and Michael Winterbottom’s ‘The Road To Guantanamo’ have also been named candidates for the top Euro award.

British director Loach features among the nominees for the directing category alongside Almodovar, Winterbottom, von Donnersmarck, Susanne Bier (After the Wedding) and Emanuele Crialese (Golden Door).
