Cillian Murphy & ‘Once’ Up For Brit Indie Awards
24 Oct 2007 :
Murphy in Sunshine
Irish actor Cillian Murphy and John Carney’s award winning feature ‘Once’ are among nominees for the 10th Annual British Independent Film Awards. Anton Corbijn's debut feature Control, a biopic of Joy Division singer Ian Curtis, leads the nominations with 10.

For the second year running Irish actor Cillian Murphy appears among the top names in contention for the Best Actor gong. Nominated for his performance in Danny Boyle’s sci-fi feature ‘Sunshine’, the actor is up against Jim Broadbent (And When Did You Last See Your Father?), Sam Riley (Control), Viggo Mortensen (Eastern Promises) and Jamie Bell (Hallam Foe).

John Carney’s ultra low budget film ‘Once’ has been shortlisted for the Best Foreign Independent Feature award. The film, which experienced worldwide success after its award winning screening at the Sundance Film Festival, goes up against the 2007 Foreign Language Oscar winner ‘The Lives of Others’, Paul Verhoven’s Venice winner ‘Black Book’, Olivier Dahan’s ‘La Vie En Rose’ which was nominated for a Golden Bear in Berlin and Guillaume Canet French drama ‘Tell No One’.

Anne Hathaway features among the Best Actress nominees for her role in the Irish filmed Jane Austin biopic ‘Becoming Jane’ and Scottish director Steven Hudson is shortlisted for the Douglas Hickox Award - Best Debut Director for ‘True North’ which is produced by Samson Films and was filmed in Ireland.

Anton Corbin’s debut feature ‘Control’ has picked up 10 nominations including Best Independent British Film, Best Director, Best Actor and Newcomer (Sam Riley), and Best Screenplay. ‘And When Did You Last See Your Father?’ follows with seven nods, ‘Hallam Foe’ with six and ‘Eastern Promises’ with five.
