London Critics’ Circle Film Awards Noms: Jane Campion, Maggie Gyllenhaal and more

Women account for three out of five helmsmen in the run-up to this year’s director at this year’s London Critics’ Circle Film Awards. Nominations have just dropped, and Jane Campion (“The Power of the Dog”), Céline Sciamma (“Petite Maman”) and Joanna Hogg (“The Souvenir Part II”) are ready to be directed.

Western “The Power of the Dog” and the coming-of-age drama “The Souvenir Part II” are also among the titles vying for Film of the Year. They are joined by two other female-directed offerings: Maggie Gyllenhaal’s Elena Ferrante adaptation “The Lost Daughter” and Julia Ducournau’s revenge thriller “Titane”.

This year’s foreign language films include “Titane” and the magical realism tale “Petit Maman”, both of which are French films.

Campion and Gyllenhaal are in the race for this year’s screenwriter. Both are expected to land Oscar nods in the custom script category.

Overall, Campion leads the nominations with nine, and Gyllenhaal and Hogg follow with six and five nods, respectively.

Go over to The Hollywood Reporter to see the complete list of nominees. The ceremony will take place on February 6th.
