Duff and Serkis scoop film awards

Posted on February 9th, 2010

Fish Tank

Gritty drama Fish Tank has taken the best film prize at the Evening Standard British Film Awards.

The film, by Oscar and Bafta winner Andrea Arnold, features newcomer Katie Jarvis as a teenager on an Essex council estate.

Annie-Marie Duff won best actress for Lennon biopic Nowhere Boy, beating Carey Mulligan who is Oscar-nominated for her role in An Education.

Andy Serkis won best actor for his Ian Dury in Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll.

Veteran director and cinematographer Nicolas Roeg won a special award for his contribution to film.

He was honoured for his work including Walkabout, The Man Who Fell To Earth, and Don't Look Now. The award was presented at the London Film Museum on Monday by Walkabout star Jenny Agutter.

Sacha Baron Cohen won the Peter Sellers Award for comedy for his alter-ego, the Austrian fashion reporter Bruno. Baron Cohen won the same award in 2006 for Borat.

Revenge saga

Peter Capaldi in In The Loop

Best film Fish Tank is the latest film from Andrea Arnold, who won a Bafta for her 2006 debut Red Road. She won an Oscar for her short film Wasp in 2004. Fish Tank took the jury prize at Cannes in 2009.

The story centres on a feisty young Essex girl (Katie Jarvis) whose life is dramatically altered by the arrival of her mother's new boyfriend, played by Hunger star Michael Fassbender.

Jarvis was cast after being spotted having a row with her boyfriend at a railway station in Essex.

However, Jarvis was beaten to the role of best newcomer by Peter Strickland for his debut film Katalin Varga.

Strickland wrote and financed the revenge saga himself, and then moved from Reading to Romania to direct it.

The technical achievement award went to Barry Ackroyd for his cinematography in Iraq bomb disposal drama The Hurt Locker.

Political satire In The Loop took best screenplay, and Anvil! The story of Anvil won best documentary.

The awards are judged by five film critics, including Derek Malcolm and the Evening Standard's Andrew O'Hagan.

O'Hagan said: "This has been the best year for film in at least a decade. At every level of the business, from the poetic, independent feel of a great film like Fish Tank to the beautiful, humane brilliance of Disney Pixar's Up, there has been a flourishing in the cinematic arts that has everyone excited."

Top award for Katie's film

2:45pm Tuesday 9th February 2010

A FILM starring a Tilbury actress has scooped the top prize at the Evening Standard British Film Awards.

Fish Tank, a gritty drama about a young girl growing up on a tough estate in Dartford, picked up the award for best film.

Katie Jarvis, 18, hadn’t acted before she was picked for the starring role of 15-year-old Mia.

She was discovered by a casting agent who spotted her in the midst of a row across the platform of Tilbury Town railway station with her boyfriend.

The film, directed by BAFTA award winner Andrea Arnold, tells the story of how Mia’s life is turned upside down when her heavy drinking mother, played by Leigh actress Kierston Wareingk, brings home a new boyfriend – Inglorious Basterd’s Michael Fassbender.

Guardian film critic Peter Bradshaw said: “Jarvis has given a wonderfully honest and open performance to be compared with David Bradley in Kes, or Emilie Dequenne in the Dardenne brothers’ Rosetta. Her relationship with Fassbender is what gives the film its beating heart.”

The young mum, who now lives in Dagenham, was also nominated for the best new comer award, but missed out to Peter Strickland for this debut film Katalin Varga.

Duff and Serkis scoop Standard film awards
By Tim Masters
Entertainment correspondent, BBC News

Anne-Marie Duff and Andy Serkis have won the best acting prizes at the Evening Standard British Film Awards.

Duff took the best actress award for her role as John Lennon's mother in Nowhere Boy, beating Carey Mulligan who is Oscar-nominated for An Education.

Andy Serkis won best actor for his role as Ian Dury in the punk biopic Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll.

Gritty drama Fish Tank, by Oscar and Bafta winner Andrea Arnold, took the best film prize.

The awards took place at the London Film Museum on Monday night.

There was a tense moment when Duff, who is expecting her first child with her husband James McAvoy, slipped as she climbed onto the podium to accept her award.

Duff thanked McAvoy, who was in the audience, for allowing her to take her work "far too seriously".

She said: "I'd really like to be Mrs McAvoy for a minute and say thank you for seriously having to live with a flame-haired broken-hearted banjo player for quite some time."

Duff was one of several actresses to slip on the podium, so Andy Serkis made a joke of it and threw himself down the stairs as he went to collect his best actor gong.

Serkis dedicated his award to Dury, saying: "Ian wherever you are, this is for you."

Serkis told the BBC that the film had been getting a "great response" from hardcore Dury fans.

"It's been a really extraordinary job from the word go - it chimes in with the 10 year anniversary of Ian's death this year.

"It's really great that people start to investigate his music once again - that's actually one of the joys of it."

Veteran director and cinematographer Nicolas Roeg won a special award for his contribution to film.

He was honoured for his work including Walkabout, The Man Who Fell To Earth, and Don't Look Now.

The award was presented by Walkabout star Jenny Agutter, who told the BBC afterwards: "I think he's a brilliant film-maker - you can't help but be affected by the work that he does. He always creates something that is completely different."

Sacha Baron Cohen won the Peter Sellers Award for comedy for his alter-ego, the Austrian fashion reporter Bruno. He received the award from the director and Monty Python star Terry Gilliam.

Baron Cohen, who appeared as himself rather than as one of his comic personas, described how he would smuggle himself into cinemas as a boy to watch Monty Python films.

Other guests at the ceremony included Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, Sarah Brown, Steve Coogan and Eva Green.

Revenge saga

Best film Fish Tank is the latest film from Andrea Arnold, who won a Bafta for her 2006 debut Red Road. She won an Oscar for her short film Wasp in 2004. Fish Tank took the jury prize at Cannes in 2009.

The story centres on a feisty young Essex girl (Katie Jarvis) whose life is dramatically altered by the arrival of her mother's new boyfriend, played by Hunger star Michael Fassbender.

"I'm delighted. It's a huge honour," Arnold told the BBC.

"It's wonderful for the film and all the people who worked hard on the film, but I'd happily sneak away…

"I don't feel any different now to when I did five years ago. It doesn't matter how many awards you get, it still feels like a massive struggle and a challenge to find the truth of what you're doing."

Arnold said she is now starting pre-production on her new project, an adaptation of Wuthering Heights to be shot on location in Yorkshire.

Fish Tank's lead actress Jarvis was beaten to the prize for best newcomer by Peter Strickland for his debut film Katalin Varga.

Strickland wrote and financed the revenge saga himself, and then moved from Reading to Romania to direct it.

The technical achievement award went to Barry Ackroyd for his cinematography in Iraq bomb disposal drama The Hurt Locker.

Political satire In The Loop took best screenplay, and Anvil! The story of Anvil won best documentary.

The awards are judged by five film critics, including Derek Malcolm and the Evening Standard's Andrew O'Hagan.

O'Hagan said: "This has been the best year for film in at least a decade. At every level of the business, from the poetic, independent feel of a great film like Fish Tank to the beautiful, humane brilliance of Disney Pixar's Up, there has been a flourishing in the cinematic arts that has everyone excited."

Katie Jarvis, Michael Fassbender in Fish Tank

The winners of London’s Evening Standard awards were announced on Monday, Feb. 8. Andrea Arnold’s Fish Tank (above), the tale of a working-class teenager (Katie Jarvis) who resents her mother’s new boyfriend (Michael Fassbender) was chosen as the best British film of 2009. Although it’s been received warmly by critics, Fish Tank is up for only one BAFTA Award: Best British Film.

Anne-Marie Duff was the best actress winner for her performance as young John Lennon’s mother in Sam Taylor-Wood’s film debut Nowhere Boy (Academy Award nominee Carey Mulligan was also in the running for An Education). Andy Serkis, best known for his Gollum in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, was voted best actor for his impersonation of rocker Ian Dury in Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll.

The other Evening Standard winners were Jesse Armstrong, Simon Blackwell, Armando Iannucci, and Tony Roche for their In the Loop screenplay; most promising newcomer Peter Strickland for his direction and screenplay of Katalin Varga; and Sacha Gervasi’s Anvil! The Story of Anvil as best documentary.

Also, Bruno’s Sacha Baron Cohen won the Peter Sellers Award for Comedy, while the Alexander Walker Special Award went to veteran filmmaker and cinematographer Nicolas Roeg (Walkabout, The Man Who Fell to Earth, Don’t Look Now) for his contributions to film. Roeg’s latest effort, Night Train, is scheduled to be released later this year. The cop thriller stars Sigourney Weaver, Michael Madsen, and Raoul Bova.

London critics pick A Prophet and Fish Tank

Jacques Audiard's gripping prison drama and Andrea Arnold's unflinching portrait of an Essex girl were the big winners at the London Critics' Circle awards

* Mark Brown
* guardian.co.uk, Thursday 18 February 2010 22.00 GMT
* Article history

Class acts … Katie Jarvis and Michael Fassbender were given acting awards for Fish Tank

Forget the big blue aliens, the best film of the year – according to 91 of Britain's professional critics – is the brutal, gripping French prison drama A Prophet.

The Jacques Audiard saga was tonight named film of the year at the 30th London Critics' Circle awards in central London, at a ceremony where James Cameron's Avatar did not even get a mention.

Chairman and Observer writer Jason Solomons called it a victory for world cinema and said critics were fed up with "the ghettoisation of films at awards ceremonies". He added: "The overwhelming feeling was that this year, the energy, daring, skill and drama of the best European film-makers should be recognised at the highest level possible. For those who love film, the only real language is that of cinema itself and, in A Prophet, director Jacques Audiard articulates it beautifully."

The win will be welcomed by those who argue that it has been a far from vintage year for English language films, while the three head-and-shoulders best films of the past year have arguably been A Prophet, Michael Haneke's The White Ribbon and Tomas Alfredson's Let the Right One In. The latter, a delightful Swedish vampire movie, was awarded best foreign film by the Critics' Circle.

The most awards, however, went to Fish Tank, Andrea Arnold's kitchen sink-style account of a dysfunctional working-class Essex family. It was named best British film while lead actor, newcomer Katie Jarvis, won best young performer for her memorable portrayal of Mia, the confused and angry 15-year-old at the heart of the film, and Michael Fassbender won best British supporting actor.

Arnold herself won best British director, part of a double victory for women directors, as Kathryn Bigelow was named best director for another unflinching film, the Iraq war drama The Hurt Locker.


Quentin Tarantino was at the ceremony in person to receive an outstanding achievement award named in honour of the great Sunday Times critic, Dilys Powell. His highly individual take on the second world war, Inglourious Basterds, brought an award for Christoph Waltz, who won best actor for his portrayal of the sadistic Nazi "Jew hunter".

The best actress award went to Mo'Nique for her extraordinary performance as the mother in Precious. Her win is the latest in a long list of critics' awards and she is odds on to take the best supporting actress category at the Oscars and this Sunday's Baftas.

Other winners included Carey Mulligan, whose best British actress prize was the only one of An Education's seven nominations to bear fruit; Colin Firth was best British actor for A Single Man; Anne-Marie Duff was best British supporting actress for playing John Lennon's mum in Nowhere Boy; Duncan Jones was breakthrough British film-maker for Moon; and Armando Iannucci, Jesse Armstrong, Simon Blackwell, and Tony Roche won the screenwriting award for In the Loop.

In a previously announced award to mark its 30th anniversary, the Critics' Circle also named the best film to have won in its history. The candidates included Paris, Texas, Schindler's List and Brokeback Mountain, but the critics decided on the film that won the very first award in 1980 – Apocalypse Now. The 30th London Critics's Circle awards were presented in aid of the NSPCC.

The Actress of the Year award went to Mo'Nique for her impressive performance as an abusive mother in dark drama Precious.

British drama Fish Tank received four awards, with Andrea Arnold being named British Director of the Year and Michael Fassbender picking up the British Actor in a Supporting Role award.

Newcomer Katie Jarvis, who landed her debut role as troubled teen Mia in Fish Tank after being discovered arguing with her boyfriend at a train station, received the NSPCC Award for Young British Performer of the Year.

French prison drama A Prophet was named Film of the Year and Swedish horror movie Let The Right One In won Foreign Language Film of the Year. Kathryn Bigelow was given the Director of the Year award for Iraq war drama The Hurt Locker.

Screenwriter of the Year went to Jesse Armstrong, Simon Blackwell, Armando Iannucci and Toni Roche for political satire In The Loop, while Duncan Jones won the Breakthrough British Film-Maker award for sci-fi thriller Moon.

Francis Ford Coppola's Vietnam War film Apocalypse Now was named the London Film Critics' Circle best film of the last 30 years.

Coppola's film was voted the best previous winner in a poll that took in the winners of all categories, including British and foreign language films, since the ceremony began in 1980.

Fish Tank hooks four prizes from Critics' Circle

Kate Jarvis and Michael Fassbender both won accolades for their performances

By Tim Masters
Entertainment correspondent, BBC News

Andrea Arnold's gritty drama Fish Tank has won four awards at the London Film Critics' Circle Awards, including British film of the year.

The story centres on a girl on an Essex estate whose life is dramatically altered by her mother's new boyfriend.

Quentin Tarantino was honoured for his outstanding contribution to cinema.

Christoph Waltz was named actor of the year for his role in Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, while Mo'Nique won best actress for Precious.

Oscar nominees Colin Firth and Carey Mulligan took the British actor and actress of the year awards for their respective roles in A Single Man and An Education.

Mulligan, who is Oscar-nominated for the same role, admitted she had no dress or speech arranged for ceremony on 7 March.

"It's so crazy to be in the same category as Meryl Streep - it's bizarre," she said.

World cinema

Cannes prize winner A Prophet beat Avatar to take the prize for film of the year.

In a tearful acceptance speech in French, A Prophet's director Jacques Audiard said: "I'm going to call up James Cameron at 4 o' clock in the morning and when he picks up the phone he's going to hear my devilish voice saying 'Loser! Loser!'"

Chairman of the judges Jason Solomons said: "It's hugely significant that the London critics awarded Film of the Year to the French film, A Prophet.

"This is a victory for world cinema and shows a refreshing open-mindedness to judge all film on an equal footing, from giant Hollywood blockbusters to classy European prison movies."

Swedish vampire story Let The Right One In won foreign language film of the year.

Kathryn Bigelow was named director of the year award for the Iraq bomb disposal thriller The Hurt Locker, which is up for nine Oscars against ex-husband James Cameron's Avatar.

The Critics' Circle awards, hosted by Jason Isaacs at London's Landmark Hotel, were held in support of the NSPCC.

As well as best British film, Fish Tank also earned accolades for British director of the year, for Andrea Arnold, and British actor in a supporting role, for Michael Fassbender.

Newcomer Katie Jarvis, who plays the lead role of 15-year-old Mia, received the award for young British performer of the year.

Jarvis was cast after she was spotted by talent scout having a row with her boyfriend at a railway station.

Arnold won a Bafta for her 2006 debut Red Road and an Oscar in 2004 for her short film Wasp. Fish Tank took the jury prize at Cannes in 2009.

Apocalypse honour

Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds has eight Oscar nominations

Screenwriter of the year went to Jesse Armstrong, Simon Blackwell, Armando Iannucci and Toni Roche for the political satire In the Loop.

And Duncan Jones won the breakthrough British film-maker award for his sci-fi drama Moon.

Quentin Tarantino was given the Dilys Powell award for excellence in cinema for his outstanding contribution to cinema as a director, screenwriter, producer and actor.

Tarantino, who picked up the award in person, said: "Hands down - this is the middle of my career. I like the idea of giving the award to someone where you think their best work might still be in front of them as an encouragement."

Judge Solomons said: "Quentin is the most passionate, daring and exciting director in America and is always engaged with the evolution of cinema."

To mark the 30th year of the awards, Francis Ford Coppola's Vietnam war film Apocalypse Now was named best film of the last 30 years.

London critics pick A Prophet and Fish Tank

Posted on 18 February 2010

Jacques Audiard’s gripping prison drama and Andrea Arnold’s unflinching portrait of an Essex girl were the big winners at the London Critics’ Circle awards

Forget the big blue aliens, the best film of the year – according to 91 of Britain’s professional critics – is the brutal, gripping French prison drama A Prophet.

The Jacques Audiard saga was tonight named film of the year at the 30th London Critics’ Circle awards in central London, at a ceremony where James Cameron’s Avatar did not even get a mention.

Chairman and Observer writer Jason Solomons called it a victory for world cinema and said critics were fed up with “the ghettoisation of films at awards ceremonies”. He added: “The overwhelming feeling was that this year, the energy, daring, skill and drama of the best European film-makers should be recognised at the highest level possible. For those who love film, the only real language is that of cinema itself and, in A Prophet, director Jacques Audiard articulates it beautifully.”

The win will be welcomed by those who argue that it has been a far from vintage year for English language films, while the three head-and-shoulders best films of the past year have arguably been A Prophet, Michael Haneke’s The White Ribbon and Tomas Alfredson’s Let the Right One In. The latter, a delightful Swedish vampire movie, was awarded best foreign film by the Critics’ Circle.

The most awards, however, went to Fish Tank, Andrea Arnold’s kitchen sink-style account of a dysfunctional working-class Essex family. It was named best British film while lead actor, newcomer Katie Jarvis, won best young performer for her memorable portrayal of Mia, the confused and angry 15-year-old at the heart of the film, and Michael Fassbender won best British supporting actor.

Arnold herself won best British director, part of a double victory for women directors, as Kathryn Bigelow was named best director for another unflinching film, the Iraq war drama The Hurt Locker.

Quentin Tarantino was at the ceremony in person to receive an outstanding achievement award named in honour of the great Sunday Times critic, Dilys Powell. His highly individual take on the second world war, Inglourious Basterds, brought an award for Christoph Waltz, who won best actor for his portrayal of the sadistic Nazi “Jew hunter”.

The best actress award went to Mo’Nique for her extraordinary performance as the mother in Precious. Her win is the latest in a long list of critics’ awards and she is odds on to take the best supporting actress category at the Oscars and this Sunday’s Baftas.

Other winners included Carey Mulligan, whose best British actress prize was the only one of An Education’s seven nominations to bear fruit; Colin Firth was best British actor for A Single Man; Anne-Marie Duff was best British supporting actress for playing John Lennon’s mum in Nowhere Boy; Duncan Jones was breakthrough British film-maker for Moon; and Armando Iannucci, Jesse Armstrong, Simon Blackwell, and Tony Roche won the screenwriting award for In the Loop.

In a previously announced award to mark its 30th anniversary, the Critics’ Circle also named the best film to have won in its history. The candidates included Paris, Texas, Schindler’s List and Brokeback Mountain, but the critics decided on the film that won the very first award in 1980 – Apocalypse Now. The 30th London Critics’s Circle awards were presented in aid of the NSPCC.

Duncan Jones Leads With Win at BAFTAs

Posted by Neil Miller (neil@filmschoolrejects.com) on February 21, 2010 Share

For those around here (almost all of us) who have been rooting for Duncan Jones’ Moon, today is a day for a bit of celebration. Jones led off today’s ceremony for the British Academy of Film and Television Awards (BAFTA) with a win for Outstanding Debut with his first film, the excellent cerebral piece of sci-fi that it was. Reports say that Jones was very emotional in accepting his award, completing a run that began last year at the Sundance Film Festival. Below you will find both his emotional speech and his post-speech interview:

As for the rest of the awards, The Hurt Locker continued its awards season dominance, taking home six awards, including Best Film. Fish Tank — which features one of the year’s best performances from Michael Fassbender — won the Outstanding British Film award, with Colin Firth (A Single Man) and Carey Mulligan (An Education) taking home best actor and actress awards, respectively. The rest is all very predictable, following suit with the American guild awards. Mark Boal and the Up in the Air duo taking the screenplay awards, with Christoph Waltz and Mo’Nique winning best supporting awards.

Colin Firth, Carey Mulligan, FISH TANK, A PROPHET: BAFTA 2010

The BAFTA surprises weren’t major surprises, except for one: the Outstanding British Film was Andrea Arnold’s gritty Fish Tank instead of the more internationally recognized An Education. Nominated for eight BAFTAs, An Education ended up winning only one: Best Actress for Carey Mulligan, whose victory could be considered "a surprise" only in the sense that across the Atlantic she has no chance — or almost no chance — of winning the Oscar.

But in her home turf, Mulligan’s chances were anything but nil. An Education has been widely praised and the same goes for Mulligan’s performance as a schoolgirl involved with a man twice her age. Admittedly, Meryl Streep was a formidable competitor for her star turn in Julie & Julia — Streep’s one and only BAFTA win took place in 1982 for The French Lieutenant’s Woman — but since the British Academy tends to ignore British talent in its nominations, it’s understandable they’d at least want to honor some local industryites with actual trophies. Perhaps less a matter of nativism than just plain survival.

That also explains Colin Firth’s Best Actor win (his first) for his bereaved gay college professor in Tom Ford’s A Single Man. Like Mulligan, Firth has almost no chance at the Oscars, but he’s both British and an "underappreciated" veteran. Jeff Bridges, the favorite to win the Academy Award for Best Actor is hardly a stellar attraction in Britain and there’s no sentimental reason to honor him as his "underappreciated" career has been decidedly based on the other side of the Atlantic. Come to think of it, see Colin Firth’s BAFTA Award as the mirror image of Jeff Bridges’ Academy Award — which he’ll surely win next March 7.

Jacques Audiard’s prison drama A Prophet beat Michael Haneke’s sociopolitical drama The White Ribbon — again. And for that, it received the most enthusiastic applause of the evening, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Just a few days ago, the London Film Critics’ Circle chose A Prophet as the best film of 2009, defeating not only The White Ribbon, but also The Hurt Locker and Avatar. Could A Prophet surprise at the Oscars as well? Stay tuned — though its tough, brutal atmosphere may turn off the usually conservative voters in the Academy’s Best Foreign Language Film category. But then again, The White Ribbon is no walk in the park…

By the way, Sandra Bullock wasn’t in the running as The Blind Side will only qualify for the 2011 BAFTAs. By then, Bullock and her sleeper blockbuster will likely have been long forgotten. Old news. Passe.

Come next January, when the BAFTA nominations are announced, we shall see if it’s indeed all about timing and having the right p.r. momentum.

BAFTA: Fish Tank wins the Best British Film

* Posted by contributor001

Lone Scherfig’s An Education was the front runner to win the Best British Film in the recently concluded BAFTA but Fish Tank, another coming-of-age story defeated the former.

Directed by Andrea Arnold, Fish Tank tells the story of fifteen-year-old Mia (Katie Jarvis) is in a constant state of war with her family and the world around her, without any creative outlet for her considerable energies save a secret love of hip-hop dance. When she meets her party-girl mother’s charming new boyfriend Connor (Michael Fassbender), she is amazed to find he returns her attention, and believes he might help her start to make sense of her life.

Michael Fassbender who was praised for his role in Inglourious Basterds did a stunning job along with Katie Jarvis as the film currently holds 89% reviews in Rotten Tomatoes and has done pretty good job with its opening in US Box-office.

Director Andrea Arnold who won an Academy Award for his Live Action Short “Wasp” in 2004 earned many more accolades that include the Best Newcomer Award for her debut film “Red Road”. She also won the Jury Award in Cannes Film Festival forFish Tank.

Fish Tank is a must watch movie and Katie Jarvis did a commendable job. The movie explores the clear-eyed, potent portrait of teenage sexuality and vulnerability and the recent accolades justifies its credentials.

Said London Film Critics Circle , chairman Jason Solomin, "This was a brilliant night for both British and international cinema. It's hugely significant that the London critics awarded film of the year to the French film A Prophet.

"This is a victory for world cinema and shows a refreshing open-mindedness to judge all film on equal footing, from giant Hollywood blockbusters to classy European prison movies."
