Nominated by Gergely Böszörményi-Nagy:
“He is a one-man movie studio. Being a screenwriter he is responsible for the highest quality historical motion pictures of the past decade (The Ambassador to Bern, The Exam, Demimonde or most recently Trezor) while he was able to prove his talent also doing a TV series and a popular movie (Tűzvonalban (In the Line of Fire), Made in Hungaria,). Presently, in October 2018 Norbi and his permanent co-creator team won the prize for best European Television Film that in my opinion cannot be called the peak of their carrier because most probably further and great success awaits them in the future as well.”
