It's already made more money at the UK box office than any other movie, but the team behind the latest James Bond film 'Skyfall' are hoping for more success at the London Evening Standard British Film Awards at County Hall tonight. The action blockbuster is one of three candidates vying for the Film of the Year award.

Also nominated is the black comedy 'Sightseers' about a pair of holidaymakers who commence a murder spree.

The final nominee is 'Berberian Sound Studio' which stars Toby Jones. It is the story of a sound engineer who gets a job at an Italian horror film studio.

Daniel Day-Lewis could add to his collection of awards after being nominated in the Best Actor category for his portrayal of Abraham Lincoln in Steven Spielberg's historical epic 'Lincoln'. Toby Jones is also nominated in the category along with Eddie Redmayne.
