Dolly de Leon bags best supporting actress nomination at London Critics’ Circle Film Awards
Dolly de Leon received a nod from the London Critics’ Circle Film Awards.
Dolly de Leon bagged a nomination for the 43rd annual London Critics’ Circle Film Awards for her portrayal in the film Triangle of Sadness.
The Filipino actress is nominated for best supporting actress as reported by the London Critics’ website.
Dolly is nominated in the same category with Hong Chau for The Whale, Nina Hoss for Tár, Kerry Condon for The Banshees of Inisherin, and Guslagie Malanda for Saint Omer.
Dolly portrays the role of Abigail in Triangle of Sadness. Her character is a toilet cleaner on a high-end yacht who becomes the leader of a flock of mega-rich passengers when they become stranded on an island.
Aside from the London Critics’ Circle nomination, Dolly was also recently nominated for a Golden Globe.
Meanwhile, Dolly also recently bagged the Best Supporting Performance award at the Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LAFCA) Awards 2022 for her role in Triangle of Sadness.
She will attend LAFCA’s awarding ceremony on January 14, 2023.
In a statement she issued to the media following her win at LAFCA Awards, Dolly said , “It’s an honor and a privilege to be recognized by critics who think outside the box and recognize the artistry of film-making.”
She continued, “I’m proud to represent every individual who is struggling in their chosen industry — much like Abigail. Every single soul who’s watched the film would know what I’m talking about.”
In a previous interview with PUSH, the actress shared how she landed the role in Triangle of Sadness.
“Nag-audition talaga ako. Lumipad sila papuntang Pilipinas, tapos, pina-arte nila sa akin ‘yung tatlong eksena, na nagbibigay ako ng pagkain, ‘yung hindi nila binantayan ‘yung fire, at ‘yung isa pang eksena ni Abigail,” she relayed.
She added, “In-audition ko lahat yon, may sides, binigay lang nila ang sides o mga eksena lang, hindi ko nabasa ang script.”
In the same interview, Dolly attributed her success to the learnings she acquired through the work that she has done in Philippine cinema for more than three decades.
“Parang naging training ground ko ang lahat ng iyon para matuto… Para magawa ko itong ginagawa ko now,” she remarked.
