'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri' won big at the London's Film Critics' Circle Awards winning Film of the Year and Actress of the Year
'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri' won three prizes at the London Film Critics' Circle Awards 2018, whilst Timothee Chalamet took home the top individual honour.
Martin McDonagh's acclaimed black comedy drama was selected to win the Film of the Year, Actress of the Year for Frances McDormand and Screenwriter of the Year accolades at the prestigious ceremony on Sunday (28.01.18).
It was victorious in almost half of the categories in which it was nominated but McDonagh lost out on the Director of the Year gong which went to Sean Baker for 'The Florida Project'.
Timothee - who has been wowing audiences with his performance in 'Call Me By Your Name' - left the event with the much sought after Actor of the Year statuette.
Other winners included Lesley Manville, who won Supporting Actress of the Year for 'Phantom Thread', and Hugh Grant took home the award for Supporting Actor of the Year for 'Paddington 2'.
Upon collecting his gong, Grant quipped: "First Trump and Brexit, and now me winning awards. It's the end of days!"
Christopher Nolan's World War II epic 'Dunkirk' won British/Irish Film of the Year.
Sally Hawkins took home the British/Irish Actress of the Year prize for her roles in 'Shape of Water', 'Maudie' and 'Paddington 2'.
