The French-language comics news clearinghouse ActuaBD.com has a piece up on nominees for the Prix Diagonale, given in conjunction with la Foire du Livre de Bruxelles. Those nominees are:

Best Album
* Le Dahlia noir, Miles Hyman And Matz And David Fincher And Based On The Prose Of James Ellroy (Editions Casterman)
* Ma Révérence, Lupano And Rodguen (Editions Delcourt)
* Melvile, Romain Renard (Editions du Lombard)

Best Series
* Murena, Philippe Delaby And Jean Dufaux (Editions Dargaud)
* Zombillénium, Arthur de Pins (Editions Dupuis)
* Blacksad, Juanjo Guarnido And Dias Canales (Editions Dargaud)

The article talks about the government official Fadila Lanaan being on hand to announce the categories and puts it in the context of Belgium seeking to restore some honor to its place in the world of European comics in part through efforts like this but also by investing in educational programs for Belgian creators yet to come. I'm a little more interested in the awards as a subset of a book fair, but that's just me. I also like that European awards seems to stay pretty limited in scope.
