London Critics' Circle Film Awards to Honor 'Les Miserables' Star Helena Bonham Carter

A crop of Britain’s leading film critics have chosen to award this year’s Dilys Powell Award for Excellence in Film to Tim Burton’s squeeze, Helena Bonham Carter, at the upcoming 33rd London Critics’ Circle Film Awards on January 20, just over a week after her latest film, Tom Hooper’s take on the hit musical “Les Misérables,” opens wide in the UK.

“To be chosen for this award is a surprise and an honour,” Carter said. “I am delighted! It’s always nice when critics say something nice about you for a change, and especially the critics in your hometown.”
