London Film Critic Awards

The nominations for the London Film Critic Awards (as voted for by the Critics Circle, who else?) were announced today. So here's a quick rundown of who's up for what.

Pride and Prejudice (which we have to admit, we didn't go and see) has got the most nominations with eight, including best actor for Matthew MacFadyen, best director for Joe Wright, best actress for Keira Knightley, and best supporting actress for both Brenda Blethyn and Rosamund Pike.

The Constant Gardner is the other obvious front runner. Ralph Fiennes is up for best actor, along with director Fernando 'City of God' Meirelles. The film is also nominated for best screenplay.

Constant Gardener and P&P also appear in the best movie cetegroy along with Crash, A History of Violence, Brokeback Mountain and King Kong.

Londonist tip: Tough one to call this, although we're going to stick with Constant Gardener based on the raves it got in the British press.

Alongside Knightley in Best Actress are Juliette Binoche for Hidden, Maria Bello for A History of Violence, Naomi Watts for King Kong, Laura Linney for Kinsey, and Catalina Sandino Moreno for Maria Full of Grace.

Londonist tip: Maria Bello.

The Best Actor hopefuls (along with Matthew MacFadyen) are: Johnny Depp for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory ,Heath Ledger for Brokeback Mountain, Viggo Mortensen for A History of Violence, Don Cheadle for Hotel Rwanda, and Bruno Ganz for Downfall.

Londonist tip: Definitely Depp. It might have been Cheadle but the English have yet to forgive him for that accent in Ocean's 11.
