Tarantino to be honoured with award

Quentin Tarantino will receive an “excellence” gong at the London Film Critics’ Circle Awards next year.

The director said it was “an honour” to be given the Dilys Powell Award for excellence in cinema.

He added: “I have always relished discussing my work with film critics and I totally respect their differences of opinion about my work, debate is what keeps cinema alive – Britain has a great tradition of film criticism and for all my work to be recognised among the great past recipients of this award is really exciting.”

British film An Education leads with seven nods, including actress of the year and British actress of the year nominations for its 24-year-old star Carey Mulligan.

Dame Helen Mirren is also in the best British actress category for her portrayal of Leo Tolstoy’s wife in The Last Station.

James Cameron’s digital epic Avatar and The Hurt Locker, the acclaimed tale of an elite bomb squad in Iraq, both feature in the film of the year category. They will be up against A Prophet, The White Ribbon and Up In The Air.

London Film Critics’ Circle committee chairman Jason Solomons said: “The fascinating nominations list this year reflects the wide range of tastes of British critics and great diversity of first-class filmmaking which is now taking place around the world, with Britain playing a major role.”

The 30th Critics’ Circle Film Awards will take place on February 18 2010 at the Landmark Hotel in London, in aid of children’s charity the NSPCC.
