In response to American Hustle's 10 nominations director David O Russell said: "Mind blowing. Humbled and beyond grateful to be recognised by BAFTA in this way. It means everything to have our actors and our craftspeople, who put their hearts into this picture, acknowledged."

Steve Coogan, who starred in, co-wrote and produced Philomena, said of the film's four BAFTA nominations: "Philomena has been a labour of love. To make a film with the very best people, where comedy and pathos sit side-by-side, is not easy. We all wanted to make something sincere and uncynical without being naïve.
