Daniel Craig's latest Bond film, Skyfall, is shortlisted for a South Bank Sky Arts Award.
The star's latest outing as 007 is up against thriller Berberian Sound Studio and The Imposter - a documentary telling the extraordinary true story of Frenchman Frederic Bourdin who claimed to be a missing teenage Texan boy.
The nominations for best TV drama all come from BBC Two with the Shakespeare adaptations, The Hollow Crown, shortlisted with World War One drama Parade's End and Line Of Duty.
The pop music nominees are Jessie Ware for her album Devotion, Plan B for Ill Manors and Saint Etienne for Words And Music.
Awards in categories including classical music, comedy, dance, literature, opera, theatre and visual art will also be given out.
South Bank Show presenter Melvyn Bragg will host the awards at London's Dorchester Hotel on Tuesday March 12.
He said: "2012 was a remarkably fine year for British achievement not least in British art, by British artists. Arriving at this shortlist was a tough job for our judges.
"We are proud of this world-class list of nominees which recognise and honour the best talent at work in the UK today."
The awards will be shown on Sky Arts 1 on March 14.
