Helena Bonham Carter and Julie Walters Nominated at BAFTA Awards


Other 'Harry Potter' stars like Kenneth Branagh, John Hurt and Brendan Gleeson also got a nomination at the Britain's awards show.

"Harry Potter" stars Helena Bonham Carter and Julie Walters will battle it out at this year's British Academy (BAFTA) Television Awards after they both received nominations in the Best Actress category. Bonham Carter's turn as beloved author Enid Blyton in "Enid" earned her the honor, while Walters received a double nod in the category - she has been nominated for her role in "Mo", which saw her play British Labor Party politician Mo Mowlam, and drama "A Short Stay in Switzerland".

The actresses, who both appear in the Harry Potter movie franchise, will compete with "Hotel Rwanda" star Sophie Okonedo for her portrayal of Winnie Mandela in "Mrs Mandela". The male acting category is also a battle of the "Harry Potter" stars - Kenneth Branagh ("Wallander"), John Hurt ("An Englishman in New York") and Brendan Gleeson ("Into the Storm") will go up against David Oyelowo ("Small Island") for the Best Actor trophy.

Okonedo also received a nomination in the Best Supporting Actress category for drama "Criminal Justice" - she's up against Rebecca Hall ("Red Riding 1974"), Lauren Socha ("The Unloved") and Imelda Staunton ("Cranford"). Featured in the Best Supporting Actor category are Benedict Cumberbatch ("Small Island"), Tom Hollander ("Gracie!"), Gary Lewis ("Mo") and Matthew Macfadyen ("Criminal Justice").

Simon Cowell's hit TV contest "Britain's Got Talent" will compete with "The Graham Norton Show", "Harry Hill's TV Burp" and "Newswipe with Charlie Brooker" for Best Entertainment Program, while "True Blood", "Family Guy", "Mad Men" and "Nurse Jackie" are nominated for Best International Show. The winners will be announced at a star-studded ceremony in London on June 6.
