Will it be Abdi, Cooper, Brühl, Damon or Fassbender to take home the Best Supporting Actor gong?

And the nominees are: Barkhad Abdi, Bradley Cooper, Matt Damon, Daniel Brühl and Michael Fassbender

It really could be anyone's year for the BAFTA's Best Supporting Actor shortlist this year.

Stuffed full of relative Hollywood newbies, there's (brand) newcomer Barkhad Abdi taking on relative veteran Matt Damon, Michael Fassbender going up against acclaimed German actor Daniel Brühl and American heartthrob Bradley Cooper who's on his second BAFTA nomination.

But with talent like this, it must be one of the hardest categories for the judges to decided and it's not the only one.

There are 23 other categories to be awarded on the night but with comical host Stephen Fry and some exciting performances, it's going to be a ceremony to remember.

This year's event will take place on February 16, held for the eighth year running at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, London.

Check out our guide below as we break down every nominee, and don't forget to vote for your favourite star at the bottom of the page.

Before being cast in Captain Phillips - his first ever film role - Barkhad Abdi was a limo driver in Minnesota.

Born in Somalia, at aged 14 he moved to America with his family, but it wouldn't be for a further 14 years that he would become a star.

Nominated for countless awards for his breakout performance - including a BAFTA and an Academy Award at this year's Oscars - his role as pirate Abduwali Muse has catapulted him to the top of Hollywood and his future looks to be glittering from now on.

Making his professional Hollywood debut with a tiny role on Sex and the City, in 1999, it wasn't until 2001 when Bradley Cooper had his film debut in We Hot American Summer that his career started to gain trajectory.

Winning the role of Will Tippin opposite Jennifer Garner in spy drama Alias, Cooper would go on to star in movie blockbusters The Hangover and The A-Team before moving onto awards fodder.

Already nominated for a host of awards last year for Silver Linings Playbook, Cooper will want to go one better this year and win his award, but do you think he can?

Having already won a host of awards in his native Germany, Daniel Brühl could be well placed to make the jump into British awards

Roles in Inglourious Basterds and The Bourne Ultimatum have brought him to the attention of British audiences, but could he win for his role in Rush?

Playing Austrian Formula One racing legend Niki Lauda opposite Thor actor Chris Hemsworth, the European actor impressed critics and audiences alike, but has he done enough to beat the competition and win?

An awards veteran, Matt Damon has been being nominated for a variety of awards for years, it's a bit of 'always the bridesmaid, never the bride' for the Behind the Candelabra actor.

The Bourne Identity star did win an Academy Award back in 1997 for the screenplay that he wrote with his best friend and co-star Ben Affleck, but the individual wins have never really happened for Damon.

Having never before been nominated for a BAFTA, is it finally time for Matt to win an award all by himself? Let us know what you think in the comments and don't forget to vote.

Irish actor Michael Fassbender has seen his career go from strength to strength recently with roles in Steve McQueen's Shame, and Inglourious Basterds, and now his role in 12 Years a Slave has seen him nominated for his third BAFTA.

Previously nominated for the Rising Star Award in 2009, and the Best Actor for Shame in 2012, Fassbender will be hoping that third time's the charm this year.

One of the few actors who has successfully managed to star in huge blockbusters like X-Men: First Class and indie productions like Hunger, will that be enough to give Fassbender your vote?

Who will win best supporting actor at the BAFTAs 2014?

Barkhad Abdi - 16%
Bradley Cooper - 14%
Daniel Brühl - 19%
Matt Damon - 5%
Michael Fassbender - 46%
