Olivia Colman, Benedict Cumberbatch and Andrew Garfield are among the many British appearing nominees within the main classes.
Dame Judi Dench and Ciarán Hinds are nominated for supporting roles. Each appeared in ‘Belfast’, Sir Kenneth Branagh’s autobiographical black-and-white movie a couple of household in Northern Eire throughout The Troubles.
Sir Kenneth, who can also be nominated for greatest director, stated in a press release: “It’s a great distance from the streets of Belfast to the Academy Awards.”
“At the moment, I consider my mom and father, and my grandparents – how proud they have been to be Irish, how a lot this metropolis meant to them.
