She is up against Judi Dench, Amy Adams, Cate Blanchett and Emma Thompson for the Best Actress Award.
Among the nominations for Best Actor is Chiwetel Ejiofor, for 12 Years a Slave.
The list also includes Bruce Dern, Christian Bale, Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks.
Nominated for Best Film are 12 Years a Slave, Philomena, Captain Phillips, American Hustle and Gravity.
William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly said: "There is traditionally a slight British bias when it comes to the Baftas, however Ejiofor's performance in 12 Years is so mesmeric, he is virtually nailed on to win."
