Hooper, Leigh films each rack up seven noms

Tom Hooper’s “The King’s Speech” and Mike Leigh’s “Another Year” each drew seven nominations for the 31st London Critics’ Circle Film Awards. The tallies are boosted as the pics were eligible for several British-only awards.

David Fincher’s “The Social Network” is close behind with five bids, including four in major categories — film, director, screenplay and actor.

Clio Barnard’s “The Arbor” and Joel and Ethan Coen’s “True Grit” have four noms apiece. All “True Grit” noms were in major categories.

“The King’s Speech” and “Social Network” vie with Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan,” Lisa Cholodenko’s “The Kids Are All Right” and Lee Unkrich’s “Toy Story 3″ for best film.

Andrew Garfield picked up two noms — British actor for “Never Let Me Go” and supporting for “The Social Network”; Helena Bonham Carter did so too, with a British actress nom for “The King’s Speech” and supporting British actress for “Alice in Wonderland.”

The Critics’ Circle, which reps more than 120 film critics, broadcasters and writers, will give Kristin Scott Thomas its highest honor, the Dilys Powell Award for excellence in cinema.

Awards will be presented Feb. 10 at the British Film Institute in London. The nominations are:
