4th Edda Awards

The 4th Edda Awards were held on 10 November 2002 in the National Theater of Iceland in Reykjavik. The awards were hosted by TV presenters Valgerður Matthíasdóttir and the previous year's Best Television Personality Logi Bergmann Eiðsson.

The Professional Awards were divided into three categories (Screenplay, Visual Design and Sound and Cinematography). Short films got their own category as well. As in previous years the public was able to cast their votes online. The Icelandic Film and Television Academy had 70% say in the results and the public 30%. Except for the Best Television Personality where the public had 100% say in the results. Around 800 people cast their votes online up to the awards.

The film Hafið, directed by Baltasar Kormákur received most nominations. The film was nominated for twelve awards in nine categories and won eight. Kormákur personally won two of those awards for directing and screenwriting. He dedicated his Best Film award to the National Theater of Iceland with these words: "Án leikhússins væri kvikmyndagerðin fátækari" ("Without this theater filmmaking would be poor"). And that it pleased him to see so many great actors who had worked in the theater receive their awards that evening.

Another interesting film among the critics was the animated children's film Litla lirfan ljóta, which was nominated in two categories and won one award.

Best Actor Gunnar Eyjólfsson was away with the Icelandic national chess team in Slovenia on the night of the ceremony, and accepted his award through Kormákur's mobilephone to great amusement.
