Carol leads London Critics' Circle Film Awards nominations

'Carol' leads the London Critics' Circle Film Awards nominations with seven nods.

The period drama - which stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara in the lead roles - has been put up for the coveted Film of the Year award, whilst the two actresses will battle it out for the Best Actress prize.

The film's director Todd Haynes has also been nominated for his part in the film, whilst screenwriter Phyllis Nagy also receives a nod.

Other big nominees include '45 Years', a British drama based on the short story 'In Another Country', with six nominations and 'Mad Max: Fury Road', 'The Revenant' and 'Steve Jobs' receiving five nods apiece.

'Amy', the documentary about the late Amy Winehouse, was also given a number of nominations including for Film of the Year, British Film of the Year and a nod for Documentary of the Year.

Rich Cline, chair of the Critics' Circle Film Awards said: "Our critics nominated more than 200 titles for Film of the Year alone, representing the range of wide opinions and the sheer number of movies critics watch each year.

"There was love for everything from 'Tangerine', 'Joy' and 'The Hateful Eight'. Getting to that final list of nominees certainly wasn't easy this year."

The ceremony will be held on Sunday January 17 at The May Fair Hotel in London, England.
