Daniel Day-Lewis continued his domination of the awards season when he triumphed at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles yesterday.

The London born star, has won a Golden Globe and is favourite to win again at this year's Oscars for his performance of the American President in "Lincoln".

Accepting his award, he said: "It occurred to me, it was an actor that murdered Abraham Lincoln.

"And therefore, somehow, it is only so fitting that every now and then an actor tries to bring him back to life again."

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.
