Olivia Colman earns BAFTA nomination after Golden Globes success
Olivia Colman has been nominated for a BAFTA for The Favourite following her victory at the Golden Globes for the same role.
The Norfolk-born actress has been nominated for the leading actress award for her portrayal of Queen Anne in the Yorgos Lanthimos film.
She faces competition from Glenn Close, Lady Gaga, Melissa McCarthy and Viola Davis at the ceremony on 10 February.
It comes after the former Norwich High School for Girls and Gresham's School student won the Golden Globe for the best actress in a comedy or musical category at the awards ceremony in Los Angeles.
Accepting the award she said: 'I would like to tell you how much this film meant to me but I can't think of it because I'm too excited.
