collected five prizes at the Roberts, Denmark’s national film and TV awards. The ceremony, held virtually on Saturday 6 February, saw the title winning the award for Best Film, as well as four more statuettes for Best Director, Best Original Screenplay (Thomas Vinterberg and Tobias Lindholm), Best Editing (Anne Østerud and Janus Billeskov Jansen) and Best Lead Actor (Mads Mikkelsen). Despite these challenging times, Another Round has been a box office hit, gaining over 800,000 domestic admissions in 2020. The story of Vinterberg’s film revolves around Martin and three of his friends, all tired high school teachers, who embark on an experiment to uphold a constant level of intoxication throughout the workday.
