It was a big night for female filmmakers at the London Critics' Circle Awards on Sunday, as Chloé Zhao’s road movie Nomadland and Rose Glass' horror Saint Maud took three trophies each.

Nomadland in particular has real momentum this awards season, with a host of nominations and several wins already. It added film of the year, screenwriter of the year for Zhao and actress of the year for star Frances McDormand. Saint Maud, meanwhile, took home British/Irish film of the year, Glass as breakthrough filmmaker, while star Morfydd Clark was British/Irish actress of the year.

Elsewhere, Rocks was given the technical award for casting director Lucy Pardee, with Bukky Bakray taking the breakthrough acting award.

The late Chadwick Boseman continues to win awards posthumously, and his performance in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom scored him best actor.
