On Saturday night, the 70th Bodil Awards celebrated Danish film at the Royal Danish Academy of Music Concert Hall in Frederiksberg, in a ceremony hosted by Mille Lehfeldt, Laus Høybye and Jakob Fauerby.
Whilst Rasmus Heisterberg beat stiff competition from Kollektivet, Forældre, Shelley and The Neon Demon to win Best Danish Film for his debut feature I blodet, Trine Dyrholm was the real story of the night with her award for Best Actress in Thomas Vinterberg’s Kollektivet.
After extending her record-breaking collection of Robert Awards last month to nine, Trine Dyrholm has now claimed a sixth Bodil award, setting a new record for the number of wins by an actor. Her previous Bodil wins were for Springflod, Forbrydelser, Fluerne på væggen, En soap and Hævnen.
The jury said in their deliberation: “(She) personifies the human challenges of an experimental time in the 1970s. Both extremes in the role as well as the nuances played are so believable that you almost forget the actor called Dyrholm.”
