Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino will receive an “excellence” gong at the London Film Critics' Circle Awards next year, while British film An Education leads the nominations with seven nods.

An Education actress and Golden Globe nominee Carey Mulligan stars in the coming-of-age story based on the memoirs of journalist Lynn Barber.

The 24-year-old star, who is being hotly tipped for major future success, can add to her plaudits with nominations for actress of the year and British actress of the year in the Critics’ Circle Awards.

Dame Helen Mirren, who was also leading the British charge at the Golden Globe nominations last week, is also in the best British actress category for her portrayal of Leo Tolstoy's wife in The Last Station. Meanwhile, James Cameron's digital epic Avatar and The Hurt Locker, the acclaimed tale of an elite bomb squad in Iraq, both feature in the film of the year category.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
