There will be two chances to win Swedish Oscars this year after actress Alicia Vikander was nominated for the best supporting actress and two Swedes who worked on "The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Diasappeared" were nominated for best makeup and hairstyling.

Vikander, nominated for her role in "The Danish Girl", will face Jennifer Jason Leigh for her role in "The Hateful Eight", Rooney Mara who starred in "Carol", Rachel McAdams who featured in "Spotlight," and Kate Winslet who acted in "Steve Jobs."

Vikander is the first Swedish woman to be nominated for an Oscar for acting since Lena Olin was nominated in 1990. The last Swedish actress to receive an Oscar for acting was Ingrid Bergman who won in 1974 for the film "Murder on the Orient Express."

Eva von Bahr and Love Larson were nominated for their makeup work in "The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Diasappeared," based on a best-selling novel by Swede Jonas Jonasson.

"We sat here in our room and watched the broadcast and screamed. We were so loud that the workers in the street outside stopped working. This is so great," Eva von Bahr told Swedish Radio.

The Academy Awards ceremony will be held in Los Angeles, California, on February 28.
