Drive and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy both earned six nominations from the London Film Critics’ Circle, including nods for Film of the Year and Actor of the Year.  “I am proud of the breadth, intelligence and style of the choices the London critics have made, honouring the richness of world cinema and the fresh, cool takes on classic movie genres seen in films such as Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Drive, and The Artist,” said Circle chair Jason Solomons. “This is surely the classiest set of nominations around this year, with truly superb work reflected in the directing and foreign language categories.”

Winners will be announced Jan. 19 in London.
