Black comedy Force Majeure swept the board at Sweden's Guldbagge Awards on Monday night (26Jan15), landing a record six prizes.

The movie, which failed to make the final cut for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar nominations, earned the top honour of Best Film at the Stockholm ceremony, while Ruben Ostlund earned the titles of Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Editing, with Jacob Secher Schulsinger.

Game of Thrones star Kristofer Hivju took home the Best Supporting Actor award for his role in the movie, while Best Cinematography was handed to Fredrik Wenzel.

Meanwhile, Blowfly Park star Sverrir Gudnason was named Best Actor, Saga Becker earned the Best Actress award for her turn in Something Must Break, and Anita Wall scored the Best Supporting Actress prize for Home.

Force Majeure's big wins left fellow multiple nominees Gentlemen and A Pigeon Sat On A Branch Reflecting On Existence out in the cold - filmmakers had to settle for accolades in the technical categories, with three for Gentlemen and one for set design for A Pigeon Sat On A Branch Reflecting On Existence.

Two Days, One Night, starring French actress Marion Cotillard, claimed the Best Foreign Language Film honour, while Norwegian veteran Liv Ullmann was feted with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the annual event, the Swedish equivalent of the Oscars.
