‘Parasite’ Tops London Film Critics’ Circle awards
Bong Joon-ho’s”Parasite” continued its streak of leading critics’ honors this year, scooping the Film of the Year and Manager of the Year awards in the London Film Critics’ Circle kudos ceremony this day. The success puts additional wind from the sails of the Korean phenomenon because it heads into the last stretch of awards , using all the BAFTAs bringing their verdict on Sunday.
Other players in the black-tie ceremony, voted by the UK’s most high-profile critics’ group, were”Marriage Story,” known for Noah Baumbach’s screenplay and Laura Dern’s supporting functionality, and Joanna Hogg’s”The Souvenir.” A depression memory bit inspired by the director’s movie school days, Hogg’s movie was called British/Irish Film of the Year, although its 22-year old top woman, Honor Swinton Byrne, won Young British/Irish Performer of town. It turned out to be a welcome increase to”The Souvenir,” that was blanked by BAFTA voters despite critical plaudits.
Hogg was among four female filmmakers awarded within the course of the day. Céline Sciamma won best foreign language picture for her tasteful lesbian costume play”Portrait of a Lady on Fire,” while Allied docmaker Waad Al-Kateab along with her co-director Edward Watts took the documentary prize to their Oscar-nominated heartbreaker”For Sama.”
Offbeat British auteur Sally Potter, whose new movie”The Roads Not Taken” will premiere in competition at Berlin next month, has been realized with the critics’ Dilys Powell Award for career achievement, together with Elle Fanning producing an appearance to present the award. Potter received the award together with a respected costume designer Sandy Powell, 28 years following their Oscar-nominated alliance on”Orlando.”
Oscar frontrunners Renée Zellweger and Joaquin Phoenix took the top acting awards for his or her much-laureled ends in”Judy” and”Joker,” respectively, while still encouraging actor Joe Pesci netted”The Irishman” its only win of the day.

From the British/Irish behaving races, Florence Pugh was admired for her performances in”Little Girls,””Midsommar” and”Struggling With My loved ones,” while Robert Pattinson pulled off a surprise success in the corresponding man group. Winning because of his eponymous under-rewarded perform in”The Lighthouse,””High Life” and”The King,” Pattinson bested BAFTA nominees Taron Egerton and Jonathan Pryce — also as George MacKay, whose buzzy car”1917″ was nowhere to be located around the critics’ winners list.
Hosted by comic and author Sally Phillips, the service always functioned as a party of those awards’ 40th anniversary, with all clips displayed during the past Film of the Year winners, from”Apocalypse Now” throughout to last year’s”Roma.” A particular anniversary award was also introduced to British stop-motion studio Aardman Animations, whose BAFTA-nominated”A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon” will probably be released Stateside following month.
