Now, I’m sure you’re pretty sick and tired of hearing peoples’ two cents on today’s BAFTA nominations and how they might correlate with tomorrow’s (well, today now) Oscar nominations, yadda yadda, blah blah blahhh.
So I’m simply going to post the list of nominations below with no preamble. That can come with whatever tomorrow’s Academy Award nominations bring!
Check out the full list of the EE (eurghh) British Academy Film Award nominations below: Continue reading

Never one to go with the obvious choices, BIFA’s 15th awards ceremony plays host to a set of nominations which once again prove the power of the documentary.
Although not as initially exciting as last year’s list, BIFA continue their mad love for Vanessa Redgrave and Olivia Colman while giving Robbie Ryan and Domnhall Gleeson recognition for their continued blistering form.
Rufus Norris’ Broken sets the bar with an impressive nine nominations including Best Film, Best Director and a bunch of acting nods, with Ben Wheatley’s Sightseers and Peter Strickland’s Berberian Sound Studio picking up seven.
I’m thrilled to see The Imposter deservedly crossing over from the Best Documentary category, with Bart Layton’s film earning six nominations including Best Director. As I mentioned yesterday, it’s not going to be a quiet season for him.
Though those pesky Americans may manage to pop up in the form of Meryl Streep and Elle Fanning, for those who prefer it quintessentially British (albeit set in India…), there’s no need to fear – The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel has earned itself a trio of acting nominations.
The winners will be announced for the seventh time by BIFA Patron, James Nesbitt, on December 9th at the Old Billingsgate in London. So, as ever, check out the full list of nominees below: Continue reading
