Oscars nominations 2014: Full list of nominees

Sally Hawkins (above) has been nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a strong year for British talent

British films have earned nominations in each of the major categories at this year's Oscars (scroll to see the nominees).

12 Years A Slave, which won Best Drama at the Golden Globes on Sunday, has picked up nominations for director Steve McQueen, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Michael Fassbender.

The film is also in the running for the biggest award of the ceremony – Best Picture.

Philomena has won three awards in the major categories, including Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay.

The film, which is based on a true story of an Irish woman who tries to find her adopted son, sees Judi Dench nominated for her performance as Philomena Lee.

Sally Hawkins, who stars alongside Cate Blanchett as her kooky adopted sister in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine, has been nominated for Best Supporting Actress.

Gravity, which has been called a British film despite its notable American cast due to the amount of post-production that took place in the UK, has earned nominations for Best Picture and Best Director. Sandra Bullock is also in the running for Best Actress.
