Depp and Hirsch up for BFCA awards
Depp is nominated for his role as a murderous barber in the forthcoming adaptation of Sweeney Todd, while Hirsch continues to collect praise for his portrayal of real-life traveller Christopher McCandless in Into The Wild.
Both films are also up for best picture, in addition to American Gangster, Atonement and Michael Clayton among others.
Best actress nominations include Cate Blanchett for Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Angelina Jolie for A Mighty Heart and Amy Adams for new Disney movie Enchanted.
The BFCA is the biggest film and critics association in North America and presents the Critics' Choice Awards to recognise "the finest achievements in filmmaking".
As well as traditional categories such as best director and best animated feature, the ceremony also features awards for best acting ensemble and best family film - for which this year's nominees include August Rush, The Golden Compass, Hairspray, Enchanted and Harry Potter and the Order of The Phoenix.
