British stars Andrew Garfield and Emily Blunt have been nominated for best acting awards at the Baftas.

Garfield is in the running for Hacksaw Ridge, while Blunt has a nod for The Girl On The Train.

Blunt will go head-to-head against Meryl Streep for the film Florence Foster Jenkins, Amy Adams (Arrival), Emma Stone (La La Land), and Natalie Portman (Jackie).

Garfield will compete against Casey Affleck (Manchester By The Sea), Jake Gyllenhaal (Nocturnal Animals), Ryan Gosling (La La Land) and Viggo Mortensen (Captain Fantastic).

I, Daniel Blake, Ken Loach’s gritty drama about the British welfare system, will compete with glittery Hollywood musical La La Land for best film, alongside American coming-of-age story Moonlight, sci-fi movie Arrival and melancholy drama Manchester By The Sea.

Skyfall star Naomie Harris has scored a nomination for best supporting actress for her role as a crack addict in Moonlight, alongside I, Daniel Blake’s Hayley Squires, Manchester By The Sea’s Michelle Williams, Lion star Nicole Kidman and Viola Davis for Fences.
