The awards season is now well and truly under way, with the Golden Globes taking place last week, the Critics Choice Awards taking place this week and then next month we get the BAFTA's before the Oscars land in March. The build up to the Oscars gives us a good idea of what to expect on the night, although each awards ceremony tends to throw up different winners.
One of the movies that will be looking to win big at most of the awards nights, is the Steve McQueen directed film 12 Years a Slave, which has earned rave reviews. British actor Michael Fassbender is up for the best supporting actor BAFTA this year and he has admitted that he is just happy to get nominated.
Fassbender was chatting at the BAFTA tea party, when he was asked if he was going to win at the awards ceremony, to which he responded, "I don't know, you tell me (laughs). No, it's just nice to be nominated you know, it's nice to get exposure for the film and hopefully encourage people to go and see it."
Michael Fassbender faces stiff competition for the best supporting actor BAFTA though, as the rest of the nominees include Matt Damon for Behind the Candelabra, Bradley Cooper for American Hustle, Barkhad Abdi for Captain Phillips, and Daniel Brühl for Rush.
The 2014 BAFTA's will take place on February 16.
