23rd Bond film 'Skyfall' has been nominated for eight BAFTAs, including Outstanding British Film.

The Sam Mendes-directed record-breaker also received nods for Supporting Actor, for Javier Bardem, Supporting Actress, for Judi Dench, and Original Music, for composer Thomas Newman, while Roger Deakins is recognised for his cinematography on the film.

Steven Spielberg's biopic 'Lincoln' scooped the most nominations with 10, including Best Film, Leading Actor for Daniel Day-Lewis, and Supporting Actress for Sally Field.

Meanwhile, 'Les Miserables' and 'Life of Pi' have both received nominations in nine categories, with Ben Affleck's 'Argo' receiving seven and 'Anna Karenina', six.

Up in the hotly-contested Best Film category are 'Argo', Tom Hooper's 'Les Miserables', Ang Lee's 'Life of Pi', 'Lincoln' and Kathryn Bigelow's 'Zero Dark Thirty'.
