31st London Critics Circle Awards Winners

Yesterday the organization had the award ceremony and award winners are in *BLUE. To check announcement at official site with all categories go here.

The critics across the ocean keep the same trend as the American critics, but will members of the Academy in the vote that "counts" go like the critics or like the guilds? That is the question that still we have to answer with our predictions. But most important, will BAFTA next Sunday look like this?
