Posted in Film, News & events

On Sunday 2nd February, The May Fair Hotel played host to one of the most prestigious event of the British arts industry’s calendar, the Critic’s Circle Film Awards. The awards are voted for by the 140 invited members of the professional association of critics of the cinematic and other arts, who between them watch every film released in UK cinemas, every year.

Now in it’s 34th year, the awards stand out from film industry awards by being voted for by only the most respected and experienced critics and the emphasis placed on acknowledging outstanding achievements of British artists.

Not surprisingly, 12 Years a Slave, from British director Steve McQueen and starring British actor, Chiwetel Ejiofor, received the most nominations, with British film Philomena receiving the second highest number of nominations including for Judi Dench and Steve Coogan’s performances.
