Oscar nominees with UK involvement include Les Misérables [pictured], Lincoln, Anna Karenina, Skyfall, Snow White And The Huntsman, Hitchcock, Prometheus, The Pirates! Band Of Misfits, Kon-Tiki, The Invisible War and Searching For Sugar Man.

“The British nominees for this year’s Academy Awards illustrate the vital and indelible role the UK film industry plays in creating the world’s entertainment,” said Hay.

“We are awed by their achievements and immensely proud of the contributions the British film industry makes to the nation’s prosperity. There is no better place in the world to do film business than the UK – and our talent and innovation in all aspects of filmmaking continue to breed creative success.”
