British Film Awards nominees announced

Jan 15 2013, 3:05pm CST | by

Daniel Day-Lewis, Eddie Redmayne and 'Skyfall' have been shortlisted for the London Evening Standard British Film Awards.

The 55-year-old 'Lincoln' star will go head to head with the 31-year-old 'Les Miserables' and Toby Jones, 46, of 'Berberian Sound Studio' in the Best Actor category.

'Skyfall' director Sam Mendes has been nominated for Film of the Year; marking the first time ever a Bond film has been nominated in the category, and will compete against Peter Strickland's psychological drama and black comedy 'Sightseers'.

English actress Andrea Riseborough of IRA terrorist movie 'Shadow Dancer', Charlotte Rampling from 'I' and 'Sightseers' star Alice Lowe have been nominated for Best Actress.

Irish funnyman Chris O'Dowd has been nominated for his role in 'The Sapphires' for The Peter Sellers Award for Comedy along with Ben Wheatley for directing 'Sightseers' and Martin McDonagh for writing and directing 'Seven Psychopaths'.

In addition to eight shortlisted awards, the Blockbuster of the Year voted for via an online public vote on Standard.co.uk will also be presented at the ceremony in the London Film Museum on Monday 4th February, hosted by Stephen Mangan.

Sarah Sands, Editor of the London Evening Standard, said: ''This is the 40th year that the Standard has supported British film and turned the spotlight on British creativity with these awards - and what a year to celebrate.

''What is, after all, our local industry may be small by Hollywood's reckoning, but its ambitions are global in scope and achievements boundless, delivering a record-breaking Bond next to a musical sensation and covering all bases in between.''

The last month of summer begins this weekend, giving us only a few more chances to get out of the doldrums that have plagued the box office for much of July with two movies that will try to turn things around.
