Emily Blunt celebrated both Hollywood and her fellow British actors at the 2013 London Film Critics' Circle Awards on Sunday. Emily wore Alexander McQueen to the event and was nominated for best British actress for her roles in Looper and Your Sister's Sister but was beat out by Andrea Riseborough. Meanwhile, Les Misérables's Samantha Barks was nominated for young British performer of the year but was bested by The Impossible's Tom Holland. Samantha's costar Helena Bonham Carter was given one of the biggest honors of the night, the Dilys Powell award for excellence in film. Other big winners from the night included Anne Hathaway, who won best supporting actress; Joaquin Phoenix, who won actor of the year; and Emmanuelle Riva, who won actress of the year.

Tom Holland stars opposite Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor in The Impossible, in theaters today, which chronicles the true events of a real-life family during 2004's devastating South Asian tsunami. We recently sat down with Tom to chat about working with Naomi and shooting the film's intense physical underwater scenes. Tom touched on the intense subject matter of the film, but also joked around with us when asked if he'd like to follow in Ewan's footsteps and star in the upcoming Star Wars projects.
It was a memorable evening in LA last night for The Impossible stars Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts as the pair stepped out for their official West Coast premiere. Ewan, dressed in Balenciaga, was joined on the carpet by his wife, Eve Mavrakis, while Naomi hit the event solo in a beautiful Zac Posen gown and Jimmy Choo stilettos. Naomi and Ewan posed for photos with costar Tom Holland, who plays their son, as well as Maria Belon, the 2004 tsunami survivor whose family inspired the film. Fellow tsunami victim Petra Nemcova also made it out to the event, in a beautiful strapless coral gown, to show her support.
Ewan and Naomi chatted with us about their experience making the film and the intense emotions they went through during production — stay tuned for more from our exclusive interviews! Naomi talked about getting to know Maria as well as the upcoming award season. Naomi's performance in The Impossible is already earning praise; she's among the best actress nominees announced earlier today during the Critics' Choice nominations.
