And she takes on English actress Cynthia Erivo, 34, who was nominated for Genius: Aretha.

Another Brit Academy Award winner, Olivia Colman, 47, is nominated for the same award in the drama category for her role in The Lost Daughter.

The trio are just three among a host of local talent chasing one of the coveted awards at the ceremony in Los Angeles on January 9 – an event that will not be televised due to a dispute over diversity.

Benedict Cumberbatch, 45, was nominated for a Best Actor Drama for The Power Of The Dog, which is up for seven awards, as is UK film Belfast.

Sir Kenneth Branagh, 61, could walk away with three gongs as Belfast is not only in the Best Picture award, but it has also been nominated for Best Screenplay and Best Director.

Irish actors Jamie Dornan, 39, and Ciaran Hinds, 68, are nominated as Best Supporting Actors for their roles in the film about the life of Kenneth.

The British also dominate in television categories – with Scot Brian Cox, 75, nominated for best actor for the drama series Succession.

Olivia has stiff competition in her category as she takes on singer Lady Gaga, 35, for her role in House Of Gucci and Kristen Stewart, 31, who was given the green light for her role as Princess Diana in Spencer.

Benedict will face some of Hollywood’s biggest names, including Denzel Washington, 66, for The Tragedy of Macbeth and Will Smith, 53, for King Richard.

But LA’s glitzy awards show looks certain not to be televised live for the first time in its history.

NBC withdrew after it was revealed that none of the 87 members of the organizers – the Hollywood Foreign Press Association – were black.

About 100 leading PR firms have said they will advise their star clients to stay away. Golden Globes president Helen Hoehne says the panel has been made more diverse.
