This film is clearly being better recevied overseas as a full body of work than it is here in the US.  Here, Tilda Swinton has gathered some nominations and could be on her way to an Academy Award nod (which in itself will be a miracle), but the film...not so much.   The Iron Lady did not get much love at all with only one nomination for Olivia Colman for British Actress of the Year but I suspect that she was acknowleged more for Tyrannosaur than for The Iron Lady.

The London Film critics Circle gave We Need to Talk About Kevin a nomination for best British film of the Year, gave dierctor Lynne Ramsay a nomination for best director where she will compete against the top guys who are in Oscar contention.

Other female nominees include: Bridget O’Connor for co-writing Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.
