Dogs Don’t Wear Pants, a feature film based on my original screenplay and directed by J-P Valkeapää, got six Jussi Awards at the 2020 Jussi Awards Ceremony. Jussis are the equivalent of Finnish Oscars.
The Awards went to Pekka Strang for Best Actor, Micke Nyström for Sound Design, Pietari Peltola for Cinematography, Michal Nejtek for Music, Mervi Junkkonen for Editing, and Aija Beata Rjabovska for Production Design. The film was nominated for nine Jussis. The movie is produced by Aleksi Bardy and Helen Vinogradov.
Because of the current coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 Jussi Awards Ceremony was held with minimum personnel under strict safety restrictions.
