Netflix's Mank leads the nominations for the Critics Choice Awards after being shortlisted in 12 categories.

The film is nominated for best picture, while British actor Gary Oldman, who plays screenwriter Herman J Mankiewicz, made the shortlist for best actor.

Mank, directed by David Fincher, chronicles the making of classic 1941 film Citizen Kane through the eyes of the alcoholic playwright.

Chadwick Boseman has also been posthumously nominated in the best actor category for his role in George C Wolfe's Ma Rainey's Black Bottom.

He has also been shortlisted for best supporting actor for Spike Lee's Da 5 Bloods.

In addition to Oldman, other British stars secured a number of nominations, including Daniel Kaluuya for Judas And The Black Messiah and Sacha Baron Cohen for The Trial Of The Chicago 7 in the best supporting actor category.

Riz Ahmed is also up for the best actor award for Sound Of Metal, while Olivia Colman secured nominations for her work in The Father and The Crown.
