While it landed just one win in the five categories in which it was nominated, La La Land still came away with the big prize, Film of the Year, at the 37th annual London Critics’ Circle Film Awards held Sunday (1/22) at the May Fair Hotel.
Manchester by the Sea, Moonlight and Love & Friendship each scored two wins apiece. Kenneth Lonergan won Screenwriter honors while Casey Affleck was named Actor of the Year for Manchester by the Sea. Naomie Harris and Mahershala Ali of Moonlight earned Supporting Actress and Supporting Actor of the Year, respectively. Ali actually shared the Supporting Actor honor, having tied in the voting with Tom Bennett for Love & Friendship. Topping the British/Irish Actress category was Kate Beckinsale for Love & Friendship.
Isabelle Huppert also took home two honors: Actress of the Year for her performance in Things to Come, and the Dilys Powell Award for Excellence in Film recognizing lifetime achievement.
