Candlelit Wolf Hall bathes in Golden Globe glory

West-based drama Wolf Hall is in the running for three Golden Globes in January.

Mark Rylance, Damian Lewis and the series itself have picked up nominations in the best limited series or TV movie category of the prestigious awards.

And the Bristol-made Shaun the Sheep The Movie is in the running for the best animated film at the awards ceremony to be hosted by Ricky Gervais.

Eddie Redmayne will go head to head with ten-time nominee Leonardo DiCaprio for the best actor in a drama. He has been nominated for his performance as transgender artist Lili Elbe in The Danish Girl, while DiCaprio received his 11th nod for his gruelling turn as Hugh Glass in revenge saga The Revenant.

Bryan Cranston, Michael Fassbender and Will Smith have also been nominated.

British actors Idris Elba and Mark Rylance will both vie for the best supporting actor in a motion picture, as well as the best actor in a limited series or TV movie award.

Elba was nominated for his role in Netflix war drama Beasts Of No Nation, while Rylance was honoured for Bridge Of Spies.

The stars will again compete in the same TV category for their performances in BBC dramas Luther and Wolf Hall respectively.

Damian Lewis, who played Henry VIII in the series, was also nominated in the best supporting actor category. Wolf Hall also picked up a nomination for best limited series or TV movie and will compete against American Crime, American Horror Story: Hotel, Fargo and Flesh And Bone. Dame Maggie Smith was a surprise nominee for her cantankerous role in The Lady In The Van and is up against Trainwreck star Amy Schumer, Spy actress Melissa McCarthy, Jennifer Lawrence, who is nominated for Joy, and Lily Tomlin, for Grandma.

Dame Helen Mirren also received a nomination for best supporting actress.

Carol also scored a coveted nomination for best motion picture (drama), alongside Mad Max: Fury Road, The Revenant, Room and Spotlight.
