Considering they recently changed the Gullruten nomination rules from "must be 18+" to "must have been born in 2001 or earlier", I'm like 99% positive there's a nom coming Tarjei's way. I really hope he actually gets the award too, he deserves all the praise and recognition for the work he did in season 3.
Hiya anon! Ah yes, I’ve seen that as well. I’m quite certain the Gullruten committee can’t ignore the public reaction in regards to Tarjei here. Look, I don’t know about Norway, but I feel that in most European countries outstanding actors only come by every once in a while (in contrast to USA/UK, which have a lot of worthy actors because that’s where the business is.) Scandinavian countries do have a big fondness and aptitude for thrillers/detectives, so SKAM in itself is already quite unique in the industry. Moreover, the series has been brought into international light this past season and has won awards before. So I think that he will indeed get a nomination, at the very least, and I would hope that he wins as well. Norway seems to have a lot of goodwill towards SKAM (plus including SKAM will only bring in more viewers for the award show haha).
But, in the end: winning such an award at such a young age will only help further his acting career, and Tarjei would so deserve to have it! Let’s hope that he will not be forgotten. I’m excited to see how far he will go.
