Best Supporting Actress BAFTA nominee Anne-Marie Duff – for Sam Taylor-Wood's Nowhere Boy – was present at the BAFTA Soho House Grey Goose after party at the Grosvenor House Hotel on February 21 in London. Though one of the leads in The Last Station, which earned Academy Award nominations for Helen Mirren and Christopher Plummer, Duff's husband James McAvoy has been all but ignored this awards season.

Duff, on the other hand, has received several nominations for her performance as John Lennon's mother in Nowhere Boy. (Lennon is played by Aaron Johnson.) In addition to her BAFTA nod, Duff was nominated by the London Critics Circle, the Irish Film & Television Academy, and was voted the year's Best Supporting Actress at the British Independent Film Awards. Nowhere Boy also stars Kristin Scott Thomas, Thomas Sangster, and David Morrissey.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers

As an aside: “Also apparent was the fact that nobody - including myself - had the foggiest clue who anybody was,” Stuart Heritage wrote in The Guardian, while complaining that he didn't get to see Meyers and other celebrities. “This resulted in a spectacular game of 'Chinese whispers', whereby famous names would become more and more mangled the further they spread up the carpet. By our mid-section vantage point, poor Vera Farmiga had become 'Keira', Avatar had mutated into something closer to 'Burgertron', and several A-listers were reduced to being serenaded by a kind of bellowed, noncommittal 'Urrph!'"

Styler was one of the nominated producers for Duncan Jones' Moon, in the running for Outstanding British Film of 2009. Styler's fellow producers were Jones, Stuart Fenegan, and Nathan Parker.

Among the other films Styler has produced or co-produced are A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, Alpha Male, and The Sweatbox. She has also acted in a number of films and television series. Among her feature-film appearances are those in Mamba, Modi, Cheeky, Alpha Male, Bug, and Me Without You.
