This year marks the first time that a category for the best casting has been included, an award that will recognise a previously overlooked element of the filmmaking process.

Leading features this year are the DC Comics origin story Joker with 11 nominations, Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Netflix’s The Irishman with 10 nominations each, and First World War epic 1917 close behind with nine.

Smaller acclaimed films also feature on this list, including a nod for Wild Rose actress Jessie Buckley, and a cinematography nomination for psychological horror flick The Lighthouse.
