The awards are the only film accolades to be voted for solely by the British public. Jackson, who is nominated for Best Director, will go head-to-head with Hollywood heavyweights Steven Spielberg (War of the Worlds), Joe Wright (Pride and Prejudice), Ron Howard (Cinderella Man), Christopher Nolan (Batman Begins) and Nick Park and Steve Box (The Curse of the Were-Rabbit).
Stars Matt Dillon, Johnny Depp, Christian Bale, Andy Serkis and Viggo Mortensen are all vying for Best Actor, while Naomi Watts, Keira Knightley, Thandie Newton, Renee Zellweger and Hilary Swank have all been nominated as Best Actress.
The ceremony will be held in the Hilton London Metropole on March 13, with British comedian Bill Bailey hosting.
