Brian Cox, Peter Capaldi, Ashley Jensen and Kate Dickie will be among the stars vying for glory at Scotland’s film and TV Oscars next month.
Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe, the two stars of Outlander, will also be in the running for Scottish BAFTA honours - a year after the show was snubbed in the nominations.
Outlander, which is based in a vast warehouse complex in Cumbernauld and has been filmed all over Scotland, is also up for best TV drama, against the crime drama Shetland, whose star Douglas Henshall will be competing in the best TV actor category along with Dr Who star Capaldi.
Transgender actress Annie Wallace, who joined the cast of Hollyoaks actress last year, will be competing against Balfe and Jensen for the best TV actress honour.
Dundee-born Cox and veteran Glasgow actor Peter Mullan will be competing with rising Borders star Jack Lowden, who is nominated for golfing drama Tommy’s Honour, in the best film actor category.
Mullan, who starred alongside Lowden in Tommy’s Honour, is nominated for Hector, in which he plays a wandering homeless man, The Carer sees Cox portray an ageing actor with an incurable illness.
Game of Thrones star Dickie, whose previous films include Red Road, Filth and Prometheus, is nominated for best film actress, for Couple in a Hole, about a couple living in the middle of a French forest.
She is up against Ruth Negga for Iona, a gritty drama set and filmed on the Hebridean island, and Alison Peebles, an actress who has battled multiple sclerosis, for the comedy Where Do We Go From Here?
Asked about Outlander’s three nominations a year on from anger from the show’s fans when it drew a blank, BAFTA Scotland director Jude MacLaverty said: “There are different juries every year and the standards and number of entries can also vary. Our process is robust, fair and audited.”
The best feature film contenders are Terence Davies’ long-awaited big screen adaptation of Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s Sunset Song will be up against Tommy’s Honour, which explored the relationship between golf pioneer Old Tom Morris and his son Tom, and Moon Dogs, a coming-of-age tale set during a chaotic road trip from Shetland to Glasgow.
The Gary: Tank Commander special which saw Greg McHugh’s cult character quiz Scotland’s political leaders is up for the best features/factual entertainment honour.
Three other BBC shows - Mrs Brown’s Boys, Scot Squad and Two Doors Down - will be battling it out in the best comedy/entertainment programme category.
Ms MacLaverty added: “After another strong year, we’re thrilled to reveal our nominees for this year’s awards.
“The wealth of talent and brilliant work being produced in Scotland continues to shine and we look forward to celebrating our winners at another incredible evening.”
Broadcaster Edith Bowman, who is hosting the awards ceremony on 6 November, said: “Scotland continues to produce world-class talent and is showing no signs of slowing down.”
