London pic crix steer kudos to cowboys

'Brokeback' wins top two honors at Circle Awards

“Brokeback Mountain” took the two main awards at the 11th London Critics’ Circle Awards, dished out Wednesday at London’s Dorchester hotel.

Ang Lee’s pic scooped the film prize and the Taiwanese helmer took home director kudos.

Bruno Ganz was awarded actor honors for his portrayal of Adolf Hitler in “Downfall,” which also won the foreign language film award. Naomi Watts drew the actress prize for her gutsy damsel-in-distress turn in “King Kong.”

“Crash” scored two wins — supporting actress for Thandie Newton nabbed screenwriting honors for Paul Haggis and Bobby Moresco.

Tom Hollander scooped supporting actor kudos for “Pride & Prejudice,” which the 100 London critics selected as best Brit film, also feting Joe Wright for British director.

The British actor and actress kudos went to Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz for their roles in “The Constant Gardener.” The thriller’s Simon Channing Williams took Brit producer.

Kelly Reilly drew newcomer plaudits for her role as a Blitz babe in Stephen Frears’ “Mrs. Henderson Presents.”

The Dilys Powell award for contribution to British cinema went to director Bryan Forbes (“Whistle Down the Wind”).

Money raised from the charity awards bash goes to the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.
