Benedict Cumberbatch, Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones are among a host of British stars in contention for the 2015 Golden Globe awards.
Cumberbatch, Redmayne and fellow Briton David Oyelowo make up three of the nominees for best actor in a drama.
Felicity Jones, Redmayne’s co-star in Stephen Hawking biopic The Theory of Everything, is up for actress in a drama, as is Gone Girl’s Rosamund Pike.
The 72nd Golden Globes will be held on 11 January.
Cumberbatch’s citation comes for his role as Alan Turing in The Imitation Game, for which Keira Knightey gets a best supporting actress nod.
Oyelowo is shortlisted for playing Martin Luther King in Selma, which is nominated for the coveted best film drama prize alongside Boyhood, The Imitation Game, The Theory of Everything and Foxcatcher.
Dame Helen Mirren gets a nod in the best actress in a musical or comedy category for The Hundred-Foot Journey, as does Emily Blunt for Stephen Sondheim musical Into The Woods.
Birdman leads the flock this year with seven nominations, while Richard Linklater’s Boyhood and The Imitation Game have five.
Organised by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the annual awards recognise both film and television.
British nominees in the television categories include Downton Abbey’s Joanne Froggatt, The Good Wife’s Alan Cumming and Ricky Gervais, nominated for his comedy Derek.
BBC One drama The Missing is up for the award for best television movie or mini-series, while Martin Freeman is recognised for his role in Fargo.
