Elizabeth McGovern is up for Best Actress for Colin Kennedy's Swung alongside her co-star Elena Anaya, while Emma Thompson completes the trio of nominees, for The Legend of Barney Thomson.

Across television there are acting nods to Peter Mullan (Stonemouth), Ken Stott (The Missing) and Michelle Gomez for her enormously popular turn as Missy in Doctor Who.
