With awards season 2015/2016 well underway by now, and all eyes turned towards the 88th Academy Awards, Irish hopefuls have received a much-needed shot in the arm over the weekend in their efforts to bring home Oscar night on February 28th. Brooklyn and Room both scored plaudits on either side of the Atlantic, though Spotlight and Mad Max: Fury Road would both prove the runaway hits at the Critics’ Choice Awards and London Film Critics’ Circle Awards.
The former, held at the Santa Monica Airport, was hosted by Silicon Valley actor TJ Miller, and saw the biggest stars of screens silver and small gathering in the Barker Hangar for the show. Leonardo DiCaprio and Brie Larson both consolidated their buzz for ‘Best Actor’ and ‘Best Actress’, though it was Larson’s Room co-star who stole the show when claiming the ‘Best Young Actor/Actress’ gong, with an acceptance speech that seemed to delight everyone there.
Other winners on the night included Amy Schumer, Rachel McAdams, Sylvester Stallone, Christian Bale, and Australian director George Miller. Spotlight, the true story of Boston Globe journalists uncovering a clerical sex-abuse scandal and cover-up, was named ‘Best Picture’. The full list of Critics’ Choice Awards winners is printed below.
In London, the London Film Critics’ Circle also showed a lot of love to George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road, making up for the lack of interest the British Academy showed it when announcing the BAFTA nominations. The London Critics also gave their top acting awards to 45 Years actors Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay, neither of whom was nominated for BAFTAs for their work in Andrew Haigh’s marital drama.
The Circle changed the name of their categories to reflect the presence of Irish stars, and they gave Saoirse Ronan the gong for ‘Best British or Irish Actress’ for her work in Brooklyn. Mark Rylance and Kate Winslet also took home ‘Best Supporting’ nods for their work in Bridge of Spies and Steve Jobs respectively.
It was also a good night for Dublin filmmaker Benjamin Cleary, whose short film Stutterer took home the prize. The film, about a young Londoner with a speech impediment, is also in the running at the Oscars, in a category that has often proved successful for Irish nominees.
The full list of winners is printed below the Critics’ Choice Awards list below.
