Nominees Picked Up for the 2007 British Independent Film Awards


Nominees Picked Up for the 2007 British Independent Film Awards


Anton Corbijn's biopic "Control" becomes the top contenders with ten nominations, including the prestigious Best British Independent Film nod.

Once again celebrating the achievement in independently funded British movies, organizers of the British Independent Film Awards have smoothly rolled down the list of eligible titles and names to vie for the honors in the event's tenth anniversary.

Leading the pack is biographical feature "Control" as it remarkably took ten nods in total, most notably that of Best British Independent Film. To win the prize, pic, however, faces tough competition from the likes of "And When Did You Last See Your Father?", "Notes on a Scandal", "Hallam Foe", and "Eastern Promises."

In acting categories, the Anton Corbijn-directed delightfully manages to score nominations in all three slots, two of them, Best Performance by an Actor in a British Independent Film and Most Promising Newcomer, being for Sam Riley. The other, Best Performance by a Supporting Actor or Actress in a British Independent Film, is a double one as both Samantha Morton and Toby Kebbell make their way to secure a spot each.

While Riley is pitted against bigger names like Viggo Mortensen and Cillian Murphy for the best actor title, Morton and Kebbell are placed alongside Colin Firth and Cate Blanchett, whose "Scandal" co-star Judi Dench gets nominated in the best actress honor. Joining the latter are Anne Hathaway of "Becoming Jane" and Sophia Myles of "Foe", among others.

For full lineup of the contenders, please check it out at the awards' official site at Bifa.org.uk. Announcement of the winners will be made at a ceremony held at the Roundhouse in London on November 28, 2007, during which the organizers will present The Richard Harris Award and The Variety Award to Ray Winstone and Daniel Craig, respectively.
