years saying you know we have two ways of dealing with this is either going out on the streets but they're also hoping that their political leadership will basically come up with some kind of plan and some kind of response to this decision by mr trump and one of the responses of course is the arab league meeting which is taking place right now in cairo what exactly are palestinians hoping for. well we heard officials in ramallah saying today and also the foreign policy and foreign minister saying that they are hoping for a very strong word just a statement of condemnation by the arab league they are hoping also and i think this is what you have to look at that this some kind of maybe action plan i mean the arab league is not really known for going much further than the statements but i think what the palestinians are hoping for is that they have finding some kind of
8:06 pm
common response with other countries what to do next and to decide on the next steps and they hope of course i mean this see that the u.s. isolated itself with this decision they hope also to make some impact for example when it comes to decisions on the u.n. security council. have us tanya kramer speaking to us there in jerusalem thank you for that. now to some of the other stories making headlines this hour iraqi prime minister. has declared victory over the so-called islamic state he says the army has driven the final remnants of i asked from iraqi soil and more than three years of conflict is a misnomer since once controlled a third of iraq including its second largest city mosul. huge wildfires raging through southern california have killed at least one person and force around two hundred thousand people to flee their homes multiple blazes

martin chills had to say you have that give this often a good we will focus on results in the negotiations and attempt to find ways to lead this country out of the difficult situation it's currently finds itself in. and that's why i will say again it can be annoying that we are once again called on to take political responsibility for our future after others have let is into a dead end. but we social democrats will do it on our own terms of don't know about me even mostly about p.b.s. or about me even as a child that is really serious when i was the s.p.d. leader marvin shields our political correspondent told us borrow has been following the final hours of the party's conference earlier he at lines last key demands the social democrats will bring to the table when they meet with chancellor angela merkel. they will determine in watch form they could participate in the new german government as far as their key priorities are you could possibly group them into

island of sam but tell me. what is your concerts to the oscars the european film awards and this year's ceremony is underway here in berlin stars hit the red carpet earlier this evening for the thirtieth annual awards ceremony the festival favorites and oscar hopefuls in the running for the top prizes and while you might have heard of many of tonight's nominees they could be the next big thing the winner of the best film prize often goes on to scoop the oscar for the best foreign language film. culture correspondent scott prosper is here in studio to tell us more about i said scott the award is turning thirty this year what is so special about it this time around this time is interesting because usually with european film awards have won big front runner last year jump on twenty at mun swept five awards was very successful this year there's no clear front runner i mean its
8:12 pm
diversity seems to be the order that a. this time around the end you can really see from some of the films i've actually already won because the awards emmys going on right now i just picked up before coming in here look at who had won the square which nominee for five awards just won for best screenplay it's a really interesting film i saw in cannes it's a satire set in the swedish world it's. really really funny and really really smart it's it's interesting pokes at the pretensions and they have pockets the sort of the liberal elite a lot of the same type of people who are voting today tonight for the european film awards and on the opposite side of the scale you have a film that just won for best animated feature called loving vincent it's a biopic of vincent van gogh the painter but was really really interesting about this film is that it's completely hand painted it took seven years to complete the director's got the each frame individually hand painted to sort of make the
8:13 pm
paintings of come alive it's really like unlike anything i've ever seen and that's really what's interesting special of as the european film awards is that they offer incredible diversity of styles of filmmaking of of sort of storytelling and i think the awards will show that there's not a lot of work went into that for sure enough this year there's not a thing go german film nominated for the top honor what about in the other categories did you have any chance yeah i think it's going to it's looking bad for the germans tonight there's one chance maybe and that's in the best actress category young actress is nominated she is nominee for performance in period drama she's really an incredible actress she's just twenty two which is the same but she's really at the top of her game. the director falls holes all of this film as compared her to the late great world we schneider she's really an amazing actress but in this category best actor she's got a lot of competition isabelle one of my favorite actresses is nominated i think is
8:14 pm
going to be a tough call. but maybe just maybe she'll pull it off there are a lot of people that actually go on to win the european film award they are then making their way to the oscar night so i guess that they will be watching tonight then yeah definitely i mean there's been a lot to pick the best film they often go on to win the best foreign language film so our people will be looking at films like the square which has got a lot of nominations but also a film i think is very interesting of the french films nominated for best picture b.p.m. beats per minute a lot of people in l.a. looking at it because they think that it's the nominations outside before like which category at the oscars it's a drama set in the early one nine hundred ninety s. and it's about act up the activist group that called for more aids research and was very aggressive about it the director of the film actually was a part of act up in paris in the early ninety's and he drew his own experiences for this felt very powerful book i saw it in cannes where premier and it really looks
8:15 pm
