Carey Mulligan dedicates Independent Spirit awards win to Helen McCrory. ...
April 23, 2021

Carey Mulligan has dedicated an acting award to Helen McCrory, calling the late Peaky Blinders star a "true independent spirit".

Mulligan won best female lead at Thursday's Independent Spirit Awards - the last film ceremony before the Oscars - for portraying a friend seeking revenge in Promising Young Woman.

She said McCrory was "an actress that I have looked up to and will continue to look up to for the rest of my career".

McCrory, 52, died of cancer last week.

Mulligan added: "Thank you to her for everything she gave us."

The awards, which recognise films made for less than $22.5m (16.2m), also saw The Crown and Call the Midwife actress Emerald Fennell win best screenplay for Promising Young Woman, which she also directed.

The top prize for best feature went to Nomadland, about people living in their vans in the American West, which is tipped to win best picture at the Oscars on Sunday.

Nomadland's Chloe Zhao also won the Independent Spirit awards for best director and best editing, and the film won best cinematography.

Riz Ahmed was named best male lead for Sound of Metal, for playing a US heavy metal drummer who is going deaf. His co-star Paul Raci won best supporting male, and the film's director and producers won best first feature.

Veteran South Korean actress Yuh-Jung Youn won best supporting female for playing a grandmother in Minari, a drama about a family who move from California to Arkansas in the 1980s.

In the TV categories, Britain's Michaela Coel picked up the prize for best new scripted series for I May Destroy You, the acclaimed drama she created and starred in.

The show, about protagonist Arabella trying to piece her life back together after being sexually assaulted on a night out, also won best ensemble cast.

Unorthodox, a drama about a young ultra-Orthodox Jewish woman who flees her arranged marriage and religious community to start a new life abroad, also won two awards.

Shira Haas won best female performance in a scripted series, while Amit Rahav took the award in the male category.
