HVIDOVRE, Denmark — Zentropa, the Danish mainstream studio with a separate division that produces adult material, received an Oscar nomination today for Best Live-Action Short for its production "At Night."

This follows Zentropa’s Academy Award nomination last year for “After the Wedding” in the Best Foreign-Language Film category. Zentropa has previously received nominations for its feature films “Dancer in the Dark” and “Breaking the Waves."

The latest adult production from Zentropa, “All About Anna,” will be released in the U.S. by Wicked Pictures on Jan. 29. The slice-of-life romantic comedy — with explicit erotic scenes — was directed by Jessica Nilsson and stars Gry Bay, Mark Stevens and Eileen Daly. Zentropa co-owner Peter Aalbæk Jensen, co-executive producer on “All About Anna," is also executive producer of “At Night.”

"All About Anna" has been shown at several international mainstream film festivals, and last year won three Scandinavian Adult Awards, including Best Scandinavian Couples Film, Best Scandinavian Actor (Thomas Raft) and Best Selling Scandinavian Star (Gry Bay).

Zentropa was founded in 1992 by director Lars von Trier and producer Peter Aalbæk Jensen, who still share an equal ownership of 50 percent of the company.

With the establishment of its adult Puzzy Power line in 1997, Zentropa became the first modern mainstream studio to produce hardcore adult material.
