Naomie Harris steals the show at The Critics' Circle Film Awards


Naomie Harris steals the show at The Critics' Circle Film Awards

TODAY'S glamorous evening began on a somewhat solemn note following the death of the Oscar winner, Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Fellow actors such as John Hurt and Steve Coogan were quick to pass on their condolences. Hurt declared him as "amazing to work with".

Despite the shocking news, the festivities went on and the cream of the British acting crop were on show to collect their awards - and I was there to meet them.The gorgeous Naomie Harris stole the show, wearing a stunning 20's style, yellow flapper dress which really complimented her tone. The actress described her casting as Winnie Mandela as "fantastic but terrifying", "she's like seven different people in one, [...] but it is the role I am proudest of". The actress, who plays Eve Moneypenny in Skyfall, also says that she is "looking forward to coming back" to the Bond franchise. Bond's 24th escapade has been announced for release in 2015.

Andy Serkis, famed for his portrayal of 'Gollum' in the Lord of the Ring series, claimed that the role had "dominated his life for the past decade"! But went on to say that it had "opened up all kinds of avenues, [such as] working with Peter Jackson" and now - even directing! The Sméagol-turned-director is now heading the on-screen adaptation of George Orwell's 'Animal Farm'. This will be the actor's first punt at directing a movie.
Legend John Hurt says that he has "no knowledge" about any possible return to the Dr. Who series.
And he had perhaps came over as a little bit more touchy than he had originally proposed. The Tinker, Tailer, Soldier, Spy says that "I've done what I have to do in it" and when questioned about conceivably working with the new Doctor, Pete Capaldi, he probed "why would I want to work with him?".
After perhaps coming across as a little bit more discourteous than he had intended, Hurt attempted to redeem himself by calling Peter "a brilliant casting". The actor, I'm sure, meant no serious offence and had arrived today to present the 'Dilys Powell Award for Excellence' to his good friend, Gary Oldman.

Something to flap about! Naomie Harris leads the cheer at the London Critics' Circle Film Awards in 20s style yellow dress 

She may have missed out on supporting actress of the year to Lupita Nyong’o at the London Critics' Circle Film Awards.
But Naomie Harris was the style winner as she attended the ceremony at the Mayfair Hotel on Sunday evening.
The 37-year-old looked like a much needed ray of sunshine wearing a stunning yellow flapper dress which flattered her toned figure.

The stunning number, with featured a sheer top section, moved about as she elegantly entered the venue.
    Accessorising the 1920s inspired look she wore a pair of silver T-bar heels, a Boucheron ring and Jessica McCormack earrings, while she carried a small clutch.
    Looking as gorgeous as ever she wore her hair in big bouncy curls down her back and showing off her natural beauty she kept her make-up to a minimum.

    Naomie was up against Sally Hawkins, Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita Nyong’o and June Squibb in the best supporting actress category.  
    At the ceremony the actress revealed the greatest review she received for her performance as Winnie Mandela in The Long Walk To Freedom was from Winnie herself.
    The Bond girl said: ‘It's a huge honour to have people like the movie and like my performance, that's really fantastic.
    So toned: The actress showed off her impressive arms as she signed pictures for fans

    ‘But the main thing that really mattered most to me was hearing Winnie say that she felt that I'd captured her and I'd honoured her legacy. That was huge to me and I'll never forget that.’
    She was joined at the ceremony by a whole host of British talent, including John Hurt, George MacKay, Andy Serkis, and Lindsay Duncan.
    Steve Coogan , who was up for his roles in  Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa , The Look of Love, Philomena  and What Maisie Knew was also in attendance but he failed to take home any prizes.
