BERLIN — Michael Haneke’s black-and-white drama “The White Ribbon” picked up a record 13 nominations for the Euro 2.855 million ($3.9 million) German Film Prize, the German Film Academy announced on Friday.

Pic set in a rural German village on the eve of WWI already won the Palme d’Or at Cannes in May and also had an Oscar nomination for foreign language film.

In the five years since the German Film Academy has been nominating films, no pic had picked up as many noms. The previous record holder was “The Lives of Others” with 11 noms in 2006; it then won seven awards.

“It’s an outstanding film,” said Bruno Ganz, president of the academy, of Haneke’s pic. “I’m delighted that this film was so well received.”

A total of 16 prizes will be awarded at the gala on April 23.

Also picking up multiple noms were Goetz Spielmann’s “When We Leave” (Die Fremde) with six and “Sturm” by Hans-Christian Schmid with five.
