London Critics’ Circle Film Awards: ‘Three Billboards’ wins 3 including Best Picture, Timothee Chalamet in Best Actor upset

“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” won three of its leading seven bids at the London Critics’ Circle Film Awards on Sunday (Jan. 28), including Best Picture. While Martin McDonagh lost the Best Director race to Sean Baker (“The Florida Project”) he did win for his script. And his leading lady, Frances McDormand, picked up another prize on her seemingly inevitable march to the Oscars. (See the full list of winners below).

However, Gary Oldman (“Darkest Hour”) hit a bump in the road as he lost Best Actor to one of his Oscar rivals — Timothee Chalamet (“Call Me By Your Name”) — and the award for British or Irish actor of the year to another, Daniel Kaluuya (“Get Out”). Oscar hopeful Sally Hawkins (“The Shape of Water”) won that homegrown award on the distaff side. And “Dunkirk” claimed Best British/Irish Film over, among others, “Three Billboards.”

The London critics awarded two British stalwarts — Lesley Manville (“Phantom Thread”) and Hugh Grant (“Paddington 2”) — the overall supporting acting honors.

Winners were revealed during a ceremony hosted by Alice Lowe and Steve Oram at the May Fair Hotel in London. Kate Winslet was feted with the Dilys Powell Award for Excellence in Film.
