More nominations roll in for Mandela film

Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom received two nominations at the 34th London Critics Circle Film awards, Videovision said on Wednesday.

Naomie Harris, who plays Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, received nominations for Supporting Actress of the Year and British Actress of the Year.

The winners will be announced on February 2.

"We congratulate Naomie on receiving these two nominations from the UK's foremost organisation of film critics," producer Anant Singh said in a statement. "This is really a massive achievement, well-deserved and very exciting."

The London Critics Circle Film Awards are voted for by the UK's longest standing and most prestigious critical organisation, which has 140 members who between them see every one of the hundreds of films released in the UK each year.

Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom received three Golden Globe nominations last week.

Idris Elba received the nomination for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama for his role as former president Nelson Mandela.

Alex Heffes received the nomination for Best Original Score, and U2 was nominated for the Best Original Song for Ordinary Love, which was written for the film.

The movie features local actors including Tony Kgoroge, Riaad Moosa and Terry Pheto. – Sapa
