53 days to go - Tilda Swinton wins the Supporting Actress award for her performance in Michael Clayton

In 2008, Tilda Swinton received her first BAFTA award for her performance as Karen Crowder in Michael Clayton (2007). It was the first time that Swinton had received a BAFTA nomination, and her fellow nominees included Cate Blanchett, Kelly MacDonald, Samantha Morton and Saoirse Ronan. In the same year, she also received the British Artist of the Year award at the Britannia Awards. 

Since then, Swinton has been nominated a further two times for Burn After Reading (2008) and We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011). She featured earlier in our countdown in a backstage photograph with Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield.
