Today, the movie scored eight nominations for the 16th annual Moët British Independent Film Awards. Clio Barnard’s Cannes Directors’ Fortnight title, The Selfish Giant, follows with seven nods, and three films picked up five each: James McAvoy-starrer Filth; the UK’s Foreign Language Oscar entry, Metro Manila; and Roger Michell’s Le Week-End. Save for Filth, the above titles are selected in the Best British Independent Film category along with Stephen Frears’ Philomena. The latter also scored mentions for lead actress Judi Dench and lead actor Steve Coogan. Coogan is also nominated with Jeff Pope for the film’s screenplay which won the pair a prize in Venice. Another Venice title, Under The Skin, divided critics on the Lido, but received a series of nominations today including for lead actress Scarlett Johansson.
