The BAFTA film nominations are in, and it looks like Eddie Redmayne and Leonardo DiCaprio are going to be battling it out for Best Lead Actor in the UK, as well as on the other side of the Atlantic.

Leonardo DiCaprio is the current favourite this Awards Season for his committed portrayal of an abandoned huntstman in 'The Revenant', and he's been duly nominated today. But so has popular Eddie, for his dazzling portrayal of transgender pioneer Lily Elbe in 'The Danish Girl'.

His co-star Alicia Vikander has also been nominated for Best Lead Actress, the first of her two nominations this year. She has also been given the nod for Best Supporting Actress for her role of a robot in 'Ex Machina'.

'Mad Max: Fury Road' has seven nominations. 'Brooklyn' and 'The Martian' are each nominated six times. 'The Big Short', 'The Danish Girl' and 'Ex Machina' receive five nominations. 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' receives four nominations.

Stephen Fry and actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw joined BAFTA chair Anne Morrison to announce the nominations this morning from BAFTA's headquarters in Piccadilly, London.
