Olivia Colman (Tyrannosaur) | Best Actress | Jameson Empire Awards 2012
Olivia Colman (Tyrannosaur)

What we said...  "This is a grim, credible portrait of long-term psychological damage, but it’s also about a man struggling desperately not to be the bastard he’s been all his life (Mullan is extraordinary, every bit as strong as he was as another Joseph in My Name Is Joe). Joseph takes to hiding from his worst instincts, while Hannah (Peep Show’s Colman, in what feels like a career-making performance) clings to her own goodness in the face of appalling abuse.
