  • Kate Winslet nominated for two Bafta Awards

    Kate Winslet had better clear some space on her mantelpiece – two Bafta awards could soon be sharing the limelight with her two new Golden Globe trophies.

    The star has been nominated for best actress in for roles in her two new movies, The Reader and Revolutionary Road.

    Nominations for the awards ceremony – which will be hosted by Jonathan Ross and held at the Royal Opera House on 8 February – were announced by Bond Girl Gemma Arterton and The Duchess star Hayley Atwell this morning.

    This is the second time Winslet has received two best actress Bafta nominations in the same year – in 2005 she was shortlisted for Finding Neverland and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

    Winslet’s competition includes fellow Briton Kristin Scott Thomas, Meryl Streep and Angelina Jolie for Changeling.

    Other big runners this year include Brad Pitt, up for a best supporting actor gong for Burn After Reading and a best actor gong for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

    Heath Ledger and Philip Seymour Hoffman are also in the best supporting actor categories.

    But the movie causing the biggest stir is undoubtedly Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire, which has 11 nominations in total.

    Batman blockbuster The Dark Knight follows with nine nominations, and Clint Eastwood’s Changeling is up for eight awards.
