The BAFTA Awards, Britain’s top film honours, were handed out in London on Sunday.
Apart from a nomination for Pawlikowski as director, Cold War was in the running for awards for film not in the English language, original screenplay (Janusz Głowacki and Paweł Pawlikowski), and cinematography (Łukasz Żal).
Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron's Roma scooped up four prizes on Sunday: for best film, best director, best cinematography and best film not in the English language.
Period drama The Favourite picked up seven awards.
In 2015 Pawlikowski won a BAFTA for his film Ida.
Cold War is a love story between two people of different backgrounds and temperaments, set against the backdrop of the Cold War in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
The film has been showered with prizes in recent months, including the European Film Awards in five categories.
It is one of nine films in the running for an Oscar for best foreign-language film.
