From BBC News Online


Steve McQueen's controversial film Shame and Paddy Considine's Tyrannosaur are leading the field for the Evening Standard British Film Awards.

Shame, about sex addiction, is up for four nominations including best film, best actor for Michael Fassbender and best actress for Carey Mulligan.

Fassbender picks up a second best actor nomination for his portrayal of Mr Rochester in Jane Eyre.

Tyrannosaur is also up for four awards, including best film.

The brutal drama lands Considine a best screenplay nomination, while its stars, Peter Mullan and Olivia Coleman, are up for best actor and actress respectively.

Archipelago, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and We Need to Talk About Kevin will also vie for best film.

Also in the running for best actor are Kenneth Branagh for My Week With Marilyn, Brendan Gleeson for The Guard, Tom Hiddleston for Archipelago, and Gary Oldman for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

Archipelago's third nomination comes for Joanna Hogg's screenplay.

The family drama stars Hiddleston as a city worker who quits to do voluntary work in Africa.

Also in the best actress category are Samantha Morton for The Messenger, Vanessa Redgrave for Coriolanus, Tilda Swinton for We Need To Talk About Kevin and Rachel Weisz for The Deep Blue Sea.

The Guard, Black Pond and The Inbetweeners will fight it out for the Peter Sellers comedy award.

The Evening Standard British film awards have been presented annually since 1973.

This year's awards will be hosted by actor Stephen Mangan at the London Film Museum on 6 February.
