Everyone Wants a Piece of Benedict Cumberbatch

8 December 2014 12:21 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Benedict Cumberbatch proved to be the most popular man of the hour when he attended the 2014 British Independent Film Awards in London on Sunday. The actor, who was awarded the Variety Award for helping "focus the international spotlight on the UK," received kisses from not only his Imitation Game costar Keira Knightley, but also his Sherlock enemy Andrew Scott, who nabbed an award of his own for best supporting actor in Pride. Benedict also received a bit of attention from Emma Thompson who took home the Richard Harris award for her contributions to British film. Benedict's new fiancée, Sophie Hunter, was likely not bothered by all the attention Benedict was receiving, as she was by his side during the entire event. Keep reading to see all the snaps from Benedict's night out, and be sure to vote for Benedict in our favorite guy of the year poll! »

"I must confess to you that I have been with studios. I haven.t enjoyed it. I tried very hard not to get sucked in. I demanded smaller trailers . I have also taken small roles in large studio films that could be described as formulaic for money, and for that I.m sorry." Looking back on Emma Thompson.s rather fabulous career there really is »

British Independent Film Awards go to 'Pride,' Brendan Gleeson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw

7 December 2014 2:23 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Yann Demange's "'71" had a strong showing in the nominations stage for the 2014 British Independent Film Awards, but it was Matthew Warchus' "Pride" walking away with top honors, including Best Film, Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress. However, my favorite win of the evening has to be Brendan Gleeson's for the underrated "Calvary." Gugu Mbatha-Raw ("Belle") rounded out the acting honors. Nothing for "The Imitation Game" or "Selma," but as our old friend Guy Lodge noted on Twitter, I'm sure they'll do fine elsewhere this season. Check out the full list of winners below, and remember to keep track of the season at The Circuit. Best Film "Pride" Best Actor Brendan Gleeson, "Calvary" Best Director Yann Demange, "'71" Best Actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw, "Belle" Best Supporting Actor Andrew Scott, "Pride" Best Supporting Actress Imelda Staunton, "Pride" Best Screenplay "Frank" Best Achievement in Production "The Goob" Best Documentary »

‘Pride’, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Brendan Gleeson Scoop British Independent Film Awards

7 December 2014 12:01 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Update, Writethru, 3 Pm Pt: Period culture clash comedy Pride was the big winner at the British Independent Film Awards which took place at London’s Old Billingsgate this evening. Pathé’s Matthew Warchus-directed ensemble took three prizes including Best Film, Best Supporting Actress for Imelda Staunton and Best Supporting Actor for new Bond cast member Andrew Scott. Brendan Gleeson was named Best Actor for John Michael McDonagh’s Calvary and Gugu Mbatha-Raw was Best Actress for drama Belle. Best Director was Yann Demange whose ’71 was the most nominated film going into the evening. (See below for the full list of winners.) The BIFAs, as their name suggests, have a decidedly indie bent and are an important date on the British awards season calendar in that they tend to honor UK films that might not get as much recognition at, say, the BAFTAs.

Jack O'Connell is breaking out something fierce this year. He's of course starring in Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken" and on the indie scene in "Starred Up," for which he was nominated last year at the British Independent Film Awards. Well, he's back for more of this this time around with "'71," Yann Demange's brilliant Belfast thriller, which scored the lion's share of nominations today with nine. Matthew Warchus' ensemble dramedy "Pride," about gay activists working to help miners during the 1984 UK mineworkers strike, was a few steps behind with seven mentions. Mike Leigh's "Mr. Turner" rounded up five nods, while "Calvary" and "The Imitation Game" picked up four apiece. The international category was mostly populated with American entries: "The Babadook," "Blue Ruin," "Boyhood" and "Fruitvale Station." Though Poland's "Ida" also made a show.
