Michael Haneke's "Amour" led the nominations of the 25th European Film Awards, taking six including best film, best director and acting nods for both Emmanuelle Riva and Jean-Louis Trintignant.

Other major nominees included Steve McQueen's "Shame," Christian Petzold's "Barbara," Olivier Nakache & Eric Toledano's "Intouchables," Thomas Vinterberg's "The Hunt" and Paolo & Vittorio Taviani's "Caesar Must Die."

Each of those films will compete against "Amour" in the best film category, which snubbed Nuri Bilge Ceylan's "Once Upon a Time in Anatolia," Tomas Alfredson's "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," Roman Polanski's "Carnage," and Cristian Mungiu's "Beyond The Hills."

Each of those films found nominations elsewhere, though notable snubs entirely included Miguel Gomes' "Tabu" and Jacques Audiard's "Rust and Bone." The latter's lead actress Marion Cotillard is probably the most shocking snub of all, losing out to Emilie Dequenne in "Our Children" and Kate Winslet in "Carnage." And while Leo Carax's "Holy Motors" is also absent, it actually wasn't eligible as it did not make the EFA's selection list.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony in Malta on December 1.

The nominees are:

Mads Mikkelsen in "The Hunt"
