The nominations for the 69th British Academy Film Awards have been revealed by Stephen Fry and Gugu Mbatha-Raw, where The Big Short, Carol and Bridge of Spies are expected to fight it out for Best Film.

Though American films once again dominate the main category in what has arguably been a weak year for cinema, Outstanding British Film has some notable gems including The Lobster, The Danish Girl and Ex Machina.

The ceremony will be held on 14 February 2016 at the Royal Opera House, once again hosted by Stephen Fry.
