French-language drama 'Amour' was the big winner at the London Critics' Circle Awards on Sunday night (20.01.13), where it was awarded Film of the Year.

The critically acclaimed movie's star Emmanuelle Riva was named Actress of the Year, while its director Michael Haneke also won the trophy for Screenwriter of the Year but lost out to 'Life of Pi' director Ang Lee for the Best Director prize.

Other big winners included 'The Master' stars Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman, who won the awards for Actor of the Year and Supporting Actor of the Year.

Anne Hathaway - who won a Golden Globe last Sunday (13.01.13) - was named Supporting Actress of the Year for her role as Fantine in 'Les Miserables', while Andrea Riseborough won British Actress of the Year for her part in 'Shadow Dancer'.

Toby Jones emerged with the British Actor of the Year prize for his outing in 'Berberian Sound Studio', which also won the Attenborough Award: British Film of the Year.

The London Film Critics' Circle comprises more than 120 members of U.K. film critics, broadcasters and writers, who this year voted for more than 200 titles on their nominations ballots.

The awards were handed out at a star-studded ceremony at the May Fair Hotel in central London, where attendees included Emily Blunt, Samantha Barks, and Helena Bonham Carter.
