Michael Haneke’s fake Twitter account will be LOL-ing in celebration today, because the real life director took home several prizes for Amour at this year’s London Critics’ Circle Film Awards.

Amour went home with Film Of The Year, plus the writing award and Best Actress for Emmanuelle Riva. But there was plenty of love to go around, with Life Of Pi’s Ang Li snatching Best Director and the Technical Achievement gong for its awards team.

Berberian Sound Studio took Best British Film and Best British Actor for Toby Jones, while The Master won both Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor. Sightseers co-writers/stars Alice Lowe and Steve Oram nabbed Breakthrough British Filmmaker.
