The film, which was released in the UK in November 2017,¬† is nominated in the Outstanding British Film category and Best Adapted Screenplay. Hugh Grant is also nominated for the Best Supporting Actor reward for his portrayal of¬†Phoenix Buchanan, a has-been actor who dons several different disguises as part of his nefarious plot. If you haven’t seen the end credit dance sequence yet, you’re in for a treat!

Congratulations to Heyday Films and Studio Canal.
