Variety‘s Archie Thomas didn’t list all of the ten British Independent Film Award nominations tallied yesterday by Anton Corbijn‘s Control, noting only that Sam Riley placed in Best Actor and Most Promising Newcomer categories.

Rebeca DaviesTelegraph story elaborated a bit more: Best Film and Best Director for Anton Corbijn (presumably a cinematography nom was included as well) with Samantha Morton and Toby Kebbell handed Supporting Actress/Actor noms. A British film industry circle jerk or a nudge for nod-out types on this side of the pond? A bit of both, presumably.
