Oh yes, another day, another list of film award nominations! We’re all just building up to the big one aren’t we, really?

I sort of love these awards because, they are so Brit-centric. That means that someone who deserves some recognition but has missed out elsewhere.

For me, one of the nicest things is to see both Charlotte Rampling and Tom Coutrney recognised for their work on 45 Years as well as Olivia Coleman for The Lobster. And High Rise, oh High Rise, just wait and see!
