Brit crits claim our man Jack

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS -

There was some good news for Jack Reynor when the Lon­don Film Crit­ics Cir­cle an­nounced the nominations for its 2012 awards ear­lier in the week. There was also a small stir­ring of con­tro­versy. The star of What Richard Did – born and raised in Dublin – was short­listed in the race for “young Bri­tish per­former of the year”. The LFCC’s web­site does con­tain the fol­low­ing note: “Ir­ish films, film-mak­ers and per­form­ers are el­i­gi­ble in Bri­tish cat­e­gories”. None­the­less, both there and in the press re­lease, the award’s ti­tle makes men­tion of just one na­tion­al­ity. It’s not a big thing. It’s nice that the LFCC hon­ours our ac­tors and film-mak­ers. But still . . .

Else­where in the list, Amour and The Master topped the poll with seven nominations each.
