Mirren 'delighted' with Best Actress BAFTA nomination

Dame Helen Mirren said she was "delighted" to have been nominated for Best Actress for her performance as Alma Reville in Hitchcock.

This was a wonderful role, Alma Reville was more than Hitchcock's wife, in many ways she was his muse, his assistant, his editor and more, and I am proud to have had the opportunity to portray her.

There were many people involved in the making of the film, all of whom played a part in this nomination.

I would particularly like to thank my co-star Anthony Hopkins and our director Sacha Gervasi who helped me to shape Alma on to the screen.
