Lasse Hallström, Alicia Vikander and Gustaf Skarsgård are three Swedes whose work is nominated for Golden Globe Awards in one way or another.
Lasse Hallström’s film “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen” could win a Golden Globe as best comedy/musical at the upcoming gala. It has three nominations: for best film in the Comedy/Musical category, best actor and best actress (Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt).

But Hallström isn’t the only Swede nominated. The Danish film “A Royal Affair” has been nominated in the Best Foreign Film category, and its female star is the Swedish actress Alicia Vikander. Then there’s the Norwegian film “Kon-Tiki” in which Swedish actor Gustaf Skarsgård can be seen. “Kon-Tiki” is also nominated for Best Foreign Film.
The Golden Globe Award is an accolade bestowed by the 93 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) recognizing excellence in film and television, both domestic and foreign. The Golden Globe Awards will take place on January 13, 2013.
