Representatives of the foreign press resident in Hollywood (Hollywood Foreign Press Association) have just nominated AIMÉE & JAGUAR by Max Färberböck for the "Best Foreign Language Film Golden Globe Award".


AIMÉE & JAGUAR is competing with four other films ("Todo sobre mi madre"; "East-West", "La fille sur le pont", "The Red Violin") for the "Best Foreign Language Film Golden Globe Award".


Director Max Färberböck on the nomination:

"I am very pleased about this news - and I am particularly pleased for Lilly Wust, that her story is being made known to so many people. Making a film about such a passion is a very private affair. It is all the nicer that the film is also finding its audience internationally as well as in Germany."


Günter Rohrbach and Hanno Huth produced AIMÉE & JAGUAR for Senator Film Produktion GmbH in Berlin. With over a million admissions, the film is one of the year's most successful in Germany and has already received many awards. It was funded by Filmboard Berlin-Brandenburg GmbH, Filmstiftung NRW, FilmFernsehFonds Bayern, FilmFörderung Hamburg, the German Federal Film Board (FFA), and the Federal Interior Ministry (BMI).


The 57th Annual Golden Globe Awards Ceremony takes place on 23rd January 2000. The awards presented there are regarded as a barometer for the OSCAR nominations which the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) will make known on 15th February 2000.
