The Banshees of Inisherin leads pack as London film critics announce nominations | Movies

Martin McDonagh’s The Banshees of Inisherin consolidated its place as frontrunner in the year-end awards race after the London Critics’ Circle announced the nominations for its film awards. The Banshees of Inisherin leads the field with nine, just ahead of indie debut Aftersun which picked up eight.

The Banshees of Inisherin, which reunites McDonagh with his In Bruges stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson and is McDonagh’s first film since 2017’s Oscar-winning crime drama Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, is nominated for film of the year and British/Irish film of the year; Farrell and Gleeson are nominated for actor and supporting actor of the year respectively, with co-stars Barry Keoghan and Kerry Condon also nominated for supporting actor and actress. Farrell is also up for British/Irish actor of the year, while McDonagh is nominated for director and screenwriter of the year.

Widely acclaimed father-daughter drama Aftersun, from first-time feature director Charlotte Wells, outperformed a string of heavyweight films to pick up eight nominations: Wells receives director and screenwriter of the year nods, while the principal cast of Paul Mescal and Frankie Corio are nominated for actor of the year and young British/Irish performer of the year respectively.

Other strong performers include three films on six nominations: Michelle Yeoh-starring comedy Everything Everywhere All at Once, including actress of the year for Yeoh, classical-music drama Tàr, including nods for Cate Blanchett and Nina Hoss for actress and supporting actress of the year respectively, and Irish-set faith drama The Wonder, which has nominations for Florence Pugh and Kila Lord Cassidy as actress and young British/Irish performer of the year.

The winners are announced at a ceremony in London on 5 February.
