A fitting tribute: Idris Elba receives Golden Globe Best Actor nominations for Mandela

Idris Elba has received a nomination for Best  Actor in a Motion Picture Drama at the 2014 Golden Globes.

The 41-year-old’s nod for his role as Mandela  in Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom comes after he failed to be recognised in the  Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations, which were announced on  Wednesday.

The British star is going for a double win –  he has also been nominated for Best Actor in a mini-series or TV movie for  Luther.

Idris will go up against fellow Brit Chiwetel  Ejiofor, who also has two nominations – one for his role in 12 Years A Slave and  the other for Dancing On The Edge.

In the Best Actor in a Motion Picture  character the pair will fight off competition  from Tom Hanks (Captain  Phillips), Matthew McConaughey (The Dallas Buyers Club), Robert Redford (All Is  Lost).

Competition is just as tough for Best Actor  in a TV series as Michael Douglas and Matt Damon have both been nominated for  their roles in Behind The Candelabra and Al Pacino has been nominated for his  part in Phil Spector.

Idris won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a  Mini Series back in 2010 for his part in popular BBC crime dram  Luther.

The actor’s career has gone from strength to  strength over the years, and after making a name for himself as Stringer Bell in  US TV show The Wire, he has found critical acclaim with Mandela.

His role in the film, which chronicles   the late Nelson Mandela’s life  journey from his childhood in a rural  village through to his inauguration as the first democratically elected  president of South Africa, has won him rave reviews.

Double whammy: Chiwetel Ejiofor has also picked up two nominations - one for his part in 12 Years A Slave and the other Dancing On The EdgeDouble whammy: Chiwetel Ejiofor has also picked up two  nominations – one for his part in 12 Years A Slave and the other Dancing On The  Edge

It came as a shock therefore that Idris  failed to be nominated for anything at the SAGs. Chiwetel  meanwhile had more luck and was nominated in the Outstanding Performance by a  Male

Actor in a Leading Role category for his role  Solomon Northup in 12 Years A Slave.

The nominations for the 71st Golden Globe  Awards were announced on Thursday, with Zoe Saldana, Olivia Wilde and Aziz  Ansari joining Miss Golden Globe at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Thursday,  December 12.
