Polley up for European Film Award
By LIZ BRAUN - Toronto Sun


Sarah Polley has been nominated for a prestigious European Film Award for her performance in The Secret Life Of Words.

The Canadian actor/filmmaker got the nod in the Best Actress category for her role as an emotionally damaged nurse.

The Secret Life Of Words, which also stars Tim Robbins, is Spanish writer-director Isabel Coixet's second feature starring Polley, following My Life Without Me.

The Secret Life Of Words won four 2006 Goya Awards (the Spanish Oscars) for best film, direction, original screenplay and production supervision. It is now available on DVD.

The Best Actress nomination puts Polley in competition with Penelope Cruz (Volver), Sandra Huller (Requiem), Natalie Baye (Le Petit Lieutenant), Martina Gedeck (The Lives of Others) and Mirjana Karanovic (Gravica).

The 19th annual European Film Awards take place tomorrow in Warsaw. The European Film Academy was founded in 1989 and unites 1,700 film professionals with the common aim of promoting European film culture.

This nomination caps a hugely successful year for Polley, whose directorial debut film, Away From Her, was the smash hit of the Toronto International Film Festival.

Away From Her, based on an Alice Munro story, stars Julie Christie, Gordon Pinsent and Olympia Dukakis and will be in movie theatres early in 2007.
