Idris Elba, star of the Nelson Mandela biopicMandela: Long Walk to Freedom, tweeted about the fact that co-star Naomie Harris did not received a BAFTA nomination for the film.

Elba, also the star of the hit BBC show Luther, tweeted:

Harris, is also known for her roles in 28 Days Later, Skyfall and Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man’s Chest. In Mandela, she plays Winnie Mandela, and was critically acclaimed in the role.

Elba himself was also not nominated, but seemed more concerned for his co-star. What a sweet guy!
