THE nominees for the 37th London Critics’ Circle Film Awards have been announced with Moonlight and Love & Friendship leading with seven nominations each including Film of the Year.
Also contending for Film of the Year is Ken Loach’s I, Daniel Blake and Gianfranco Rosi’s Fire at Sea. Rosi’s immigration-themed film, Fire at Sea, is also nominated for Best Foreign-Language Film and Documentary.
Hosting the ceremony this year are actor-filmmakers Alice Lowe and Steve Oram who won the critics’ Breakthrough Filmmakers prize in 2012 for their screenplay for comedy film Sightseers.
Last year’s ceremony saw George Miller win both Film and Director of the Year for action-adventure film Mad Max: Fury Road.
Sponsoring the gala event is The May Fair Hotel and also Suqqu – the award-winning Japanese beauty brand of choice to some of the world’s leading make-up artists such as Morag Ross who has won BAFTAs for her work in the film industry on films such as Lost in Translation and Orlando. The high-quality range, whose name is derived from the Japanese word sukku-to, meaning “posture with attitude”, offers a beautiful and gentle range of skin products that work effectively on your complexion. Suqqu was created to nurture and enhance the sophistication one gains with age.
