The Danish Girl and Ex Machina, two productions in which TAG Global Film and Media was involved in, were also nominated. Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander are both in the run for Best Actor and Best Actress; whilst the film is amongst the nominees for the Achievement in production design award.

Ex Machina, a British film written and directed by Alex Garland, is also nominated for two awards: Achievement in visual effects and Original screenplay.
