Capital's critics choose their top films.
Master And Commander: The Far Side Of The World has been nominated for six awards including film of the year, best director, best actor for Crowe and best British actor for Paul Bettany. The swashbuckling Napoleonic drama set on the high seas is adapted from the novels of Patrick O'Brian.
Young Adam leads the British field with nominations in seven categories.
Ewan McGregor is in the running for best British actor and David Mackenzie is up for three awards - best British director, best British screenwriter and best British newcomer.
The Scottish thriller raised eyebrows with its graphic sex scenes between McGregor and co-star Emily Mortimer.
Film of the year will be a battle between Master and Commander, The Hours, Far From Heaven, Mystic River and The Lord Of The Rings: Return Of The King.
The winners will be announced on February 11.
EPIC: Russell Crowe
