JAMES McAVOY missed out on a BAFTA nomination for Filth yesterday – sparking a furious reaction from co-star Martin Compston.

There was no best actor nod for the 34-year-old Scot – who plays a drug-addled policeman – with Tom Hanks, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale, Bruce Dern and Chiwetel Ejiofor on the shortlist.

Angry Compston, 29, tweeted: “Not only was James McAvoy in Filth best performance of last year, it was one of best I’ve seen in my life.”




Irvine Welsh, who wrote the book the film was based on, said: “Don’t see what else James McAvoy could do on-screen. “Inspired to get back to work. Disappointments are the greatest motivators.”
