Los Angeles (dpa) – And another Hollywood honor for Helena Zengel: Twelve-year-old Berliner was nominated for the award as Best Young Star on Monday by the Critics’ Choice Association (CCA).
Last week, Zengel had already received a Golden Globe nomination for “Best Supporting Actress” and a trophy at the US Acting Association SAG Awards for her role in the western “Neus aus der Welt” with Tom Hanks.
At the Critics’ Choice Awards, “Neus aur der Welt” has been nominated seven times, including leading actor Hanks, adapted screenplay and best film for the camera. Zengel competes against Ibrahima Guye (“You Have Life Before You”) and Kaolin Springall (“The Midnight Sky”) in the “Best Young Actor” category.
With twelve nominations, the author Herman J. Mankiewicz’s biography “Manc”, who wrote the classic “Citizen Kane” with Orson Welles, is one of the favorites. The family drama “Minari” is accompanied by ten chances to win. Films such as “Da 5 Bloods”, “Ma Rainey Black Black”, “Nomadland” and “The Trial of the Chicago 7” have also been nominated several times.
The Critics’ Choice Awards are scheduled for March 7 in Santa Monica, California. Nominees from different places should be added virtually for the 26th award. The trophies are chosen by over 400 members of the renowned Association of Critics of the USA and Canada.
