The Skins star has been nominated for his role in A Single Man, and faces Carey Mulligan, Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg and Tahar Rahim for the award.

"It's fantastic, it hasn't quite settled in yet - it feels very odd to be nominated with such great actors who are doing so well, so to be in there... I feel like a fraud," he said at the award's launch at the Bafta headquarters in London.

The award - previously won by Noel Clarke, Eva Green and James McAvoy - has special significance to Nicholas, because it was set up in honour of his agent's mother, Mary Selway.

"It would mean a lot to me (to win it), I want to do it for Kate (Buckley), my agent because I know it would mean to her to win her mum's award," he said.

"Kate and I have been together for seven years and we're really good friends as well as working together so it was just a great honour to be nominated."

The winner will be announced at the Orange British Academy Film Awards on February 21.
