by hellomagazine.com

The nominations for the 70th edition of the BAFTA Awards, one of the most prestigious ceremonies to celebrate the great and the good of the acting world, were revealed in London on Tuesday morning ahead of next month's glamourous show. And leading this year's list of honoured celebs were British stars Andrew Garfield and Emily Blunt, who have both received nominations in the best acting categories. 

In a live stream event from the British Academy Film Awards, it was announced that Andrew, who was born in Los Angeles but raised in Surrey, will be competing against Ryan Gosling, Casey Affleck, Jake Gyllenhaal and Viggo Mortensen in the leading actor category. Andrew, 33, will take on La La Land's Ryan again, for his role in Hackshaw Ridge - the latter was awarded with the best actor gong at this year's Golden Globes on Sunday.
