  • Belfast led the British winners at this year’s Critics’ Choice Awards as it snapped up Best Acting Ensemble at the annual event 
  • Newcomer Jude Hill, who stars as Buddy in the semi-autobiographical film, took home the gong for Best Young Actor/Actress
  • Belfast scored a massive 11 nominations, racking up Best Supporting Actor nods for both Jamie Dornan and Ciarán Hinds

Belfast led the British winners at this year’s Critics’ Choice Awards as it snapped up two awards, while Hannah Waddingham earned acclaim for her role in Ted Lasso.

The Irish drama, which stars Jamie Dornan and Judi Dench and is based on Kenneth Branagh’s childhood growing up in Northern Ireland at the height of The Troubles, took home the awards for Best Ensemble Cast.

And newcomer Jude Hill, who stars as Buddy in the semi-autobiographical film, snapped up the gong for Best Young Actor/Actress.

Winner: Belfast newcomer Jude Hill, who stars as Buddy in Kenneth Branagh’s Irish drama, snapped up the gong for Best Young Actor/Actress

The 11-year-old appeared gobsmacked on stage as he collected the award, telling audiences: ‘I’m gonna be completely honest, I have nothing prepared.’

He thanked his cast-mates, his mother and father, and singled out director Kenneth, adding: ‘I love you so much, thank you for choosing me.’

Jude was presented the award by last year’s winner, nine year-old Alan Kim, who said that growing up in the industry was ‘no picnic’.

Joining Jude onstage to accept the ensemble cast award, Jamie Dornan joked that the win was a surprise as ‘critics are not usually very nice to me’.

Acclaim: Belfast, which stars Jamie Dornan and is based on Kenneth’s childhood growing up in Northern Ireland in The Troubles, took home the award for Best Ensemble Cast

‘I’m gonna copy and paste what he said before… truly unbelievable,’ he said. 

Belfast scored 11 nominations, racking up Best Supporting Actor nods for both Jamie Dornan and Ciarán Hinds and Best Supporting Actress recognition for Caitríona Balfe. 

It also earned nominations for Haris Zambarloukos for Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Jim Clay and Claire Nia Richards for Best Production Design, and Úna Ní Dhonghaíle for Best Editing. 

Elsewhere, Hannah Waddingham beat heavy competition to win the Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series accolade for her role as team owner Rebecca Welton in Ted Lasso.

Congratulations! Hannah Waddingham beat heavy competition to win the Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series accolade for her role in Ted Lasso

In charge: The 47-year-old actress plays team owner Rebecca Welton in the comedy-drama series

She was up against Hannah Einbinder for Hacks, Kristin Chenoweth for Schmigadoon!, Molly Shannon for The Other Two, Cecily Strong for Saturday Night Live, and Josie Totah for Saved By the Bell.

The 47-year-old star recognised her fellow nominees as she said: ‘Hello! Hi! I am massively unprepared. I didn’t think it it was going to come round to me again. 

‘Critics Choice Association — I’m not going to cry! Thank you so much for recognizing me again, among these titans of women! 

‘My god, Molly Shannon! Molly Shannon, kr Kristin Chenoweth, hello, hello over there. Thank you so much! 

Amazing! Hannah’s Ted Lasso co-star Brett Goldstein also took home the gong for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series 

‘Apple, Warner Bros., honestly, I can’t — I know I keep saying it but this has changed my life, and to Jane Becker, one of the writers on Ted Lasso, I needed to know her name, she was responsible for our funeral episode, and thank you for sharing your grief with me and for me to make right with it. 

‘Thank you so, so much. I am just over the moon. Thank you so much!’

The show is centred around an American college football coach Ted Lasso, who heads to London to manage AFC Richmond, a struggling English Premier League soccer team.

Her Ted Lasso co-star Brett Goldstein, who also wrote the series, took home the gong for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his role as Roy Kent.

During his acceptance speech, the 41-year-old English actor said: ‘Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am really not going to swear this time. Thank you to the Critics Choice Association. Thank you to Apple and Jason and Bill and Brandon and Joe Kelly for changing my life. 

Co-stars: During his acceptance speech, the 41-year-old English actor mentioned Hannah as he praised his ‘amazing cast’

‘Let’s be honest. I am basically the most supported actor — like, I don’t do much. I’m just surrounded by amazing cast. 

‘And I would like to name them individually but there’s too many and it’s 1:00 in the morning, people need to go to bed. Let me at least say Jason, who taught me everything, Hannah, who I love, and I would love to give a special shout out to the person I did most of my scenes with this year, the amazing Juno Temple. 

‘Acting with Juno is like acting with peer lights. Thank you so much, everyone. Thank you!’

He competed against Sex Education’s Ncuti Gatwa, Harvey Guillén for What We Do in the Shadows, Ghosts’s Brandon Scott Jones, Ray Romano for Made for Love, and Bowen Yang for Saturday Night Live.
