Whitaker won in the best leading actor category at the 79th Academy Awards, the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the BAFTAs. Whitaker also won awards from the Broadcast Film Critics Association, New York Film Critics Circle, Los Angeles Film Critics Association, National Board of Review, National Society of Film Critics, and many other critics awards, for a total of at least 23 major awards, with at least one more nominations. As of 2022, Whitaker from The Last King of Scotland and Mirren from The Queen are the only two lead performances for portraying real-life leaders, and is the only lead actor to ever sweep the rarest achievements known as The Big Four critics awards (LAFCA, NBR, NYFCC, NSFC) as well as win the Oscar, Globe, BAFTA, SAG, and Critic s Choice at the same year.
The film received a 2007 BAFTA Award for Best British Film and the BAFTA award for Best Adapted Screenplay, in addition to receiving nominations for Best Film (lost to The Queen also written by Peter Morgan). McAvoy was nominated for Best Supporting Actor, but he lost to Alan Arkin from Little Miss Sunshine (which was directed by music video directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris).
The film was received well in Uganda, where it premiered two days before Whitaker won the Best Actor Academy Award.
