The Bodil Awards are the major Danish film awards given by Denmark's National Association of Film Critics (Danish: Filmmedarbejderforeningen). The awards are presented annually at a ceremony in the Imperial Cinema in Copenhagen. Established in 1948, it is one of the oldest film awards in Europe. The awards are given without regard to commercial interests or box-office sales, but rather to highlight the films or actors that the critics regard as most worthy.
The name of the award honors two of the most important actresses in Danish cinema, Bodil Kjer and Bodil Ipsen. The statuette is made of porcelain, and was designed by Danish artist Ebbe Sadolin and sculpted by Svend Jespersen of Bing and Grøndahl.
Awards are presented for the following categories:
Other Bodil Awards presented intermittently are a Cinematographers award, a Special Bodil for important contributions during the year, and an Honorary Bodil for a person who, through the years, has distinguished them self in a meaningful way.
