Evening Standard British Film Awards – Nominations

BAFTA, you really could have learned one or two things from these nominations. The fact that Best Supporting is rolled into Best Actor/Actress makes for some very interesting choices, very few of which are actually potential Oscar nominees – Branagh and Fassbender, Redgrave, Swinton and possibly Mulligan and Oldman if he’s exceptionally lucky after his pretty unexciting Awards season. But the one main difference is the three nominations for Joanna Hogg’s Archipelago, starring BAFTA Rising Star nominee, Tom Hiddleston. And hello to the overdue acting nods for Colman, Gleeson and Mullan. The addition of a ‘People’s Choice’ Award gives The Smurfs a chance to battle it out against Bridesmaids and Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes. Tell Papa Smurf not to crack the champagne out just yet.
