UPCOMING movie Mary, Queen of Scots is up for three awards at this year's Baftas.

Margot Robbie is in the running for best supporting actress for her performance as England's Queen Elizabeth.

The movie, which stars Saoirse Ronan in the lead role, is further nominated in the costume design and hair and makeup categories.

However, comedy-drama The Favourite, about the relationship between England's Queen Anne and two courtiers, leads the pack with 12 nominations, including those for best film and outstanding British film.

Olivia Colman, who plays the monarch, is up for best actress.

Costars Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone are listed against Robbie in the best supporting actress field.

Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody has seven nominations, as does Lady Gaga vehicle A Star is Born.

And US thriller You Were Never Really Here, which was written, directed and produced by Scotland's Lynne Ramsay is also up for outstanding British film.

Ramsay's previous work includes We Need to Talk About Kevin, Morvern Callar and Ratcatcher.

Meanwhile, Glenn Close won a leading actress nod for her role in drama The Wife, which was filmed in Glasgow, East Lothian and Dumfries.
