Michel Hazanavicius’ "The Artist" walked away with three trophies at the London Film Critics’ Circle Awards last night, winning for film of the year, director and best actor (Jean Dujardin) says Variety.
Meryl Streep ("The Iron Lady") and Anna Paquin ("Margaret") tied for best actress while Michael Fassbender ("A Dangerous Method" & "Shame") scored best actor. Supporting nods went to Kenneth Branagh ("My Week with Marilyn") and Sareh Bayat ("A Separation"). Olivia Colman ("Tyrannosaur" & "The Iron Lady") and Craig Roberts ("Submarine") took home acting awards as well.
"We Need to Talk About Kevin" scored British film of the year and "Senna" best documentary. "A Separation" won best foreign film and screenplay while Andrew Haigh won breakthrough British filmmaker for "Weekend".
The news comes after the announcements of the nominees for the 2012 Orange British Academy Film & Television Awards (BAFTAs) on Tuesday.
"The Artist" scored 12 nominations, "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" scored eleven, and "Hugo" took nine. 'Artist' & 'Tinker' will compete with "Drive", "The Descendants" and "The Help" for the Best Picture award.
