Irish co-production The Favourite is continuing its awards season recognition, leading the nominations for the Critics' Choice Awards, which take place on Sunday night.

The Favourite, which marked Dublin-based production company Element Pictures' third collaboration with director Yorgos Lanthimos following on from The Lobster and The Killing of a Sacred Deer, is nominated for 14 Critics' Choice Awards.

The Favourite star Olivia Colman, who won a Golden Globe for her performance as Queen Anne in the period drama, is once again nominated for her leading performance, and again in the separate Best Actress in a Comedy category.
