Emily, Samantha and Helena Hit London For the Critics' Circle Film Awards
Emily Blunt and Helena Bonham Carter continued their awards season fun at the London Critics' Circle Film Awards held at the MayFair Hotel last night. Emily was nominated for British actress of the year but lost to Andrea Riseborough, who was recognised for her work in Shadow Dancer. Helena was this year's recipient of the Dilys Powell Award for excellence in film, which honoured her career filled with a variety of interesting characters. Helena's Les Misérables onscreen daughter, Samantha Barks, was also on hand for the event, but she lost the young British performer of the year award to The Impossible's Tom Holland. The big winner of the night was French film Amour, which picked up film and screenplay of the year for writer/director Michael Haneke, as well as actress of the year for Emmanuelle Riva.
