'Lincoln' leads the way at this year's BAFTAs with 10 nominations.

Steven Spielberg's biopic about the late US President Abraham Lincoln received the staggering amount of nods when the 2013 awards nominees were unveiled by 'Starter For Ten' actress Alice Eve and 'Warhorse' star Jeremy Irvine at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Piccadilly headquarters in London this morning (09.01.13).

Among its many nods, 'Lincoln' is up for the prestigious Best Film title, while Daniel Day-Lewis is in the running for the Leading Actor prize for his portrayal of the president who abolished slavery and led the country through the American Civil War.

His co-stars Tommy Lee Jones and Sally Field are in the running for the Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress gongs respectively.

Daniel receives competition in the Leading Actor category from Ben Affleck in 'Argo', Bradley Cooper in 'Silver Linings Playbook', Hugh Jackman in 'Les Miserables' and Joaquin Pheonix in 'The Master'.

Dame Helen Mirren is up for the Leading Actress award for her performance in 'Hitchcock', and is being hotly tipped to beat her rivals Jessica Chastain in 'Zero Dark Thirty', Marion Cotillard in 'Rust and Bone', Jennifer Lawrence in 'Silver Linings Playbook' and Emmanuel Riva for her role in 'Amour'.

'Les Miserables' and Ang Lee's visually stunning 'Life of Pi' are also in the running for the Best Film gong - along with 'Argo' and 'Zero Dark Thirty' - and are just behind 'Lincoln' having received nine nominations each.

The latest James Bond film 'Skyfall' follows with eight nominations, including Best Supporting Actor for Javier Bardem for his portrayal of villain Raoul Silva and Best British Film.

The ceremony is to be held on February 10 at London's Royal Opera House and will be hosted by Stephen Fry and will be broadcast on BBC One.
