Director Andrey Zvyagintsev has a chance to win a prize by the American Academy award with his film «Dislike», although a nomination can be considered a victory, told RIA Novosti on Tuesday the head of the Guild of film critics Kirill Razlogov.

«I used to say that Zvyagintsev chance one of 90 in the number of films in the list, and now one in five. There is a chance that the card will fall, hard to say, but he was twice nominated, so I guess that will treat him with respect. Nominated for an Oscar is a victory. The last time was Nikita (Mikhalkov) with «Weary sun» in 1994,» said Razlogov.

The film «Dislike» among the five nominees for the Academy award in the category «Best foreign language film». Also among the nominees were the films «Fantastic woman,» Sebastian Lelio (Chile), «body and soul» Enyedi Ildiko (Hungary), «Insult» Duari Ziad (Lebanon) and «Square» Ruben Estlund (Sweden).

World premiere of the film «Dislike» was held in the main competition program of the jubilee of the 70-th Cannes international film festival, where the film was awarded the jury Prize. Also at the end of the festival «Dislike» received the highest scores from the jury of the international critics of the magazine Screen International. In addition, the film won the Grand Prix at international festivals in Munich and London, as well as nominated for British Academy of film and television arts BAFTA.

The current nomination for the Director for the second: the previous film by Andrey Zvyagintsev’s «Leviathan» was nominated for «Oscar» in 2015.
