Female filmmakers and British talent reigned supreme at today's London Critics' Circle Film Awards. Chloe Zhao's Nomadland was the predictable champion overall, winning Film of the Year alongside Screenplay of the Year in a competitive field. Small Axe's Steve McQueen won Director of the Year with a surprise win for the Mangrove episode's Shaun Parkes in Supporting Actor of the Year. In the British/Irish categories, there were three prizes for Rose Glass' Saint Maud and two for Sarah Gavron's Rocks. Check out the 2020 LCC Film Award nominations here.
