'It's great to be back again as a host', gleefully said Oram, during a statement he gave to the press, as he then went on to explain how the event is 'always a fun and friendly night, and a brilliant celebration of film'. Over the past year Oram has appeared in two British films, 'A Dark Song' and 'Brakes', and is currently in production on 'Deadfolk', which is his second project as a director. Lowe, on the other hand, appeared in the most acclaimed British drama for 2017, 'The Ghoul', and is about to release her directorial debut, 'Prevenge'.

Rich Cline, who's the chair of the Critics’ Circle Film Awards, backed up Oram's statement by saying: 'Our awards stand out from the crowd because they are chosen by people who watch all of the films released in Britain every year. The ceremony is an integral part of the annual awards-season conversation and has consistently highlighted film achievements that may be overlooked by other groups. I'm also delighted that we're returning to the intimate, five-star glamour of 'The May Fair Hotel' for a sixth year. The team there has been integral to our event, and we look forward to working with them to put on another great evening'.
