Earlier on this evening, we attended the 36th annual London Critics Circle Awards at the Mayfair Hotel in London. It was another fantastic night for the likes of Mad Max: Fury Road which scooped Film Of The Year, and 45 Years, which picked up British/ Irish Film Of The Year. Asif Kapadia’s Amy was named Documentary Of The Year, while Tom Courtenay picked up Best Actor, and Charlotte Rampling Best Actress, both for 45 Years. Kate Winslet was on hand to pick up Best Supporting Actress for Steve Jobs, while Mark Rylance won Best Supporting Actor for Bridge Of Spies. George Miller was named Best Director for Mad Max: Fury Road.
We were on hand to talk to a couple of the attendees, including Kate Winslet and the recipient for the Dilys Powell Award For Excellence In Film, Sir Kenneth Branagh, who led a touching tribute to the late Alan Rickman.
Watch our interviews below.
