‘Lady Macbeth,’ ‘Three Billboards’ Land British Independent Film Nominations

“The Death of Stalin,” “I Am Not a Witch” and “God’s Own Country” also received multiple nominations

William Oldroyd’s fierce period drama “Lady Macbeth” led all films in nominations for the British Independent Film Awards, which were announced on Wednesday in London.

The film, which stars Frances Pugh as a young wife in 19th-century England who rebels after being sold into an arranged marriage, set a new BIFA record with 15 nominations, though several were in newly created craft categories.

Other films with double-digit nominations were Armando Iannucci’s political satire “The Death of Stalin” and Rungano Nyoni’s African-set “I Am Not a Witch” with 13 each, Martin McDonagh’s blackly comic “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” with 11 and Frances Lee’s “Brokeback Mountain”-style drama “God’s Own Country,” also with 11.

“The Florida Project” and “Get Out” were among the films nominated for Best International Independent Film, along with Oscar foreign-language hopefuls “The Square” and “Loveless.”

The British Independent Film Awards will take place on December 10 in London.
