London Critics push ‘An Education’

'Fish Tank,' 'Loop,' 'Boy,' 'Prophet' popular

British coming-of-ager “An Education” topped the London Film Critics’ Circle Awards nominations, announced Monday.

The film, based on journalist Lynn Barber’s recollection of her teen years, picked up seven noms, including actress for Carey Mulligan and scripter for Nick Hornby.

Andrea Arnold’s “Fish Tank” took six noms, while “In the Loop” and “Nowhere Boy” tied with five each, alongside French pic “A Prophet.”

Eight of the categories are reserved for British films and talent, which explains the domination of local pics in the noms tally.

In those categories open to all films, “A Prophet,” “Up in the Air” and “The White Ribbon” were favorites, each nabbing best film and helmer noms, among others.

The Critics’ Circle, which reps more than 100 U.K. film journalists, will hand its highest honor, the Dilys Powell Award for Excellence in Cinema, to Quentin Tarantino.

The awards, which are in their 30th year, take place Feb. 18.

The critics named “Apocalypse Now” the best film of the past three decades.
