The Richard Harris Award for outstanding contribution to British Film: Daniel Day Lewis

To check nominees in all the categories go here. The awards ceremony will be held December 6th at The Brewery, Chiswell Street, in London and will be hosted by James Nesbitt.

Calls my attention that Bright Star didn't make it to best film, still Jane Campion has a nod for Best Director... hmm, seems the movie will not be as I imagined. Fish Tank has the most nominations and definitively now I'm very curious about An Education.
