    Yes, yes, yes!!! I am over the moon for the wins for TYRANNOSAUR, especially Olivia Colman. She most definitely deserves a spot in the top 5 for the Oscar for Best Actress!!!! Paddy is one of the most down to earth and genuine people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Well-deserved success for him and his amazing little indie film. Hopefully, this will make more people want to see it.
