The UK's leading film critics today announced the nominations for their 36th annual awards ceremony, with Todd Haynes' romantic drama Carol leading the way with seven nominations including Film of the Year and both Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara contending for Actress of the Year.

The gala ceremony will be held on Sunday 17th January at The May Fair Hotel.

Close behind in the race for the awards, which are voted on by 140 members of The Critics' Circle Film Section, is Andrew Haigh's marital study 45 Years, with six nominations. Mad Max: Fury Road, The Revenant and Steve Jobs follow with five citations each.

The nominations were announced at The May Fair today by rising star Florence Pugh, who was surprised that she was nominated herself as Young British Performer for her work in Carol Morley's drama The Falling. The 17th January ceremony will again be hosted by actor-filmmakers Steve Oram and Alice Lowe. Kenneth Branagh will receive the Dilys Powell Award for Excellence in Film.

"Our critics nominated more than 200 titles for Film of the Year alone, representing the range of wide opinions and the sheer number of movies critics watch each year," says Rich Cline, chair of the Critics' Circle Film Awards. "There was love for everything from Tangerine and Tangerines to Love, Joy and The Hateful Eight. Getting to that final list of nominees certainly wasn't easy this year."

Unusually, two films received three nominations each: Asif Kapadia's Amy is nominated for Film, Documentary and British Film, while Joshua Oppenheimer's The Look of Silence is up for Film, Documentary and Foreign-Language Film. And Tom Hardy received three nods: as lead actor in Legend, supporting actor in The Revenant and as British actor for his body of work in 2015. Other actors with multiple nominations are Michael Fassbender, Charlotte Rampling and Saoirse Ronan.

Joining Carol, 45 Years, Amy and The Look of Silence among the 10 movies shortlisted for Film of the Year are the Disney/Pixar animation Inside Out, George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road, Alejandro G Iñárritu's The Revenant, Ridley Scott's The Martian, Tom McCarthy's Spotlight and Lenny Abrahamson's Room.

Last year's ceremony saw Richard Linklater winning both Film and Director for Boyhood, with three awards going to Jonathan Glazer's Under the Skin.
