Queen Accolades Continue

by | 09 February 2007

The awards have continued to roll in for The Queen, with the acclaimed British drama picking up four gongs at last night's London Film Critics' circle awards.

Alongside being named best British film, star Dame Helen Mirren was handed the best British actress award, while best British director and best screenwriter went to Stephen Frears and Peter Morgan respectively.

But The Queen, which is up for six Oscars later this month, lost out to Paul Greengrass and his United 93 picture for best film and best director.

And Mirren, 61, was beaten to the overall best actress accolade by The Devil Wears Prada star Meryl Streep, while Forest Whitaker won best actor for his portrayal of Ugandan director Idi Amin in The Last King of Scotland.

Veteran star of stage and screen Leslie Philips meanwhile, currently seen in Peter O'Toole's comedy Venus, was recognised with an outstanding contribution to cinema award.

The Queen and Mirren are among the hot favourites to win best film and best actress at the Academy Awards, while the movie is also in the running for ten Baftas.
