Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy heads Bifa nominations

1st November 2011

The film adaptation of John le Carre's Cold War thriller Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy leads the way with seven nominations at the 2011 British Independent Film Awards (Bifas).

The production has received critical acclaim and been a big hit with UK cinemagoers, rising to the top of the box office during its first two weeks on release, with Gary Oldman singled out for special praise for his portrayal of George Smiley.

Oldman is nominated for best actor at the Bifas, with co-stars Tom Hardy and Benedict Cumberbatch going head-to-head for the supporting actor gong and Kathy Burke receiving a nod for best supporting actress.

Tomas Alfredson has been shortlisted for the director award, while the film is also up for the technical achievement gong and the prestigious best British independent film award.

The production faces stiff competition from the acclaimed adaptation of Lionel Shriver's We Need to Talk About Kevin, however, which has garnered six nominations, including nods for best film and best director.

The winners will be announced during the 14th British Independent Film Awards ceremony on December 4th at the Old Billingsgate in London.
