But even that wasn’t enough to lead the pack for Hollywood’s glamour night on 22 February as The Curious Case of Benjamin Button was handed a staggering 13 nods.

Competing with the pair for both are Frost/Nixon, Milk and The Reader, which also attracted a nod for this season’s award-magnet, Kate Winslet.
