The first film by Gilles Coulier, won ten nominations in the guard in eight categories, three of which are in the category of Best Actor, with Sebastien Dewaele, Sam Louwyck Wim Willaert.

Two other films, the Facades of Kaat Beels and Le Fidèle by Michaël Roskam, were in nine categories nominated. Both are obviously nominated for Best Film, next to Cargo, Patser of Adil El Arbi and Bilal Fallah, and Zagros of Sahim Omar & The. Those last two movies were each six times nominated.

On Patser after the publieksfilms striking hard this year. Jan Verheyen made two good scoring films, FC De Kampioenen 3 and The second face, and got nothing for that last one nomination, for Best editing.

In the category Best Documentary Rabot, the critically acclaimed film by Christina Vandekerckhove, towering favorite, but there is the Taboo, the One program in which Philippe Geubels minorities that invites them to laugh, is another notable nominee.

In the tv categories, Tabula rasa, the great nominatieslokop. The series was eight times nominated, but only four frames to win, because they are for two Ensor, Best Actor and Best Actress, three time nominated.
