On Sunday, February 6, 2022, the winners of the 2022 London Critics’ Circle Awards were announced.
“The Power of the Dog,” directed by Jane Campion, took home four wins, including the coveted award for Film of the Year. Campion won for Director of the Year, Benedict Cumberbatch won for Actor of the Year and Kodi Smit-McPhee won for Supporting Actor of the Year.
The Netflix hit “Passing” proved to be a success for the streaming service and picked up two wins. Ruth Negga won for Supporting Actress of the Year and Rebecca Hall won The Philip French Award for Breakthrough British/Irish Filmmaker.
Andrew Garfield won for British/Irish Actor of the Year, taking home the award for his roles in Netflix’s “Tick, Tick… Boom!”, Searchlight’s “The Eyes of Tammy Faye,” Sony’s “Spider-Man: No Way Home” and Universal’s “Mainstream.”
Tilda Swinton won British/Irish Actress of the Year for her roles in Sovereign’s “Memoria,” Picturehouse’s “The Souvenir Part II,” and Searlight’s “The French Dispatch.”
Although “The Souvenir Part II” was shut out of the BAFTA nominations earlier this week, it also picked up the Attenborough Award for British/Irish Film of the Year.
“Dune” picked up only one win in the Technical Achievement Award category. The critically acclaimed film “Drive My Car” won the award for Foreign Language Film of the Year. The Documentary of the Year award went to “Summer of Soul … or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised.”
Actress Olivia Colman also picked up a win for Actress of the Year for the Netflix film “The Lost Daughter,” which was directed by Maggie Gyllenhaal.
