For 60 years, the British Academy Film Awards has recognized and honored outstanding achievements in film and 2007 offers a strong and diverse field of contenders.

Among the other stars vying for Best Actor honours are Leonardo DiCaprio (The Departed), Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland) and acting legend Peter O'Toole (Venus).

Also in contention with seven nominations is the complex, cross-cultural drama, Babel.

In the latter category, Babel will compete against the Idi Amin biopic The Last King of Scotland, which is nominated in four other categories.
