Though small in comparison to say, the Oscars, Iceland celebrated its annual Edda Awards for Film and Television this weekend.

Baldvin Z’s drama, Life In A Fishbowl (Vonarstræti), about the intersecting lives of a hooker with a heart of gold, a drunk writer and an honest banker, cleaned up by taking home 12 Eddas.

Life In A Fishbowl won Eddas for Best Film, Screenplay, Director, Cinematography and Editing as well Best Score – composed by Ólafur Arnalds.

Both leading actors in the film, Þorsteinn Bachmann and Hera Hilmarsdóttir took home Eddas for their roles.
