15 JANUARY 2009
Having hardly had time to mop the tears prompted by her Golden Globes win, Kate Winslet could be facing another emotional ceremony next month after earning two best actress Bafta nods.
The Reading-born actress – who already has one of the prestigious trophies, awarded in 1995 for Sense And Sensibility – received the nominations for her roles in Revolutionary Road and The Reader.
The 33-year-old mum-of-two will go up against Angelina Jolie in The Changeling, Kristin Scott Thomas in I've Loved You So Long and Meryl Streep for her role in Doubt at the February 8 ceremony.
Other nominees announced by Bond girl Gemma Arterton and The Duchess' Hayley Atwell included those for best actor - Brad Pitt, Slumdog Millionaire star Dev Patel, Milk's Sean Penn, Frank Langella for Frost/Nixon and Mickey Rourke.
While the contenders for best film were unveiled as Frost/Nixon, Milk, The Reader, Slumdog Millionaire and The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button. The latter two top this year's nominations list with 11 nods apiece.
