BAFTA Nominations

by Administrator 10. January 2013 13:47


The shortlist for this year’s BAFTA Film Awards was announced in London today with Lincoln, Les Miserables, Life of Pi, Skyfall and Argo leading the way!

Gathering ten nominations, Lincoln is proving to be an awards-season favourite, despite the fact that Spielberg missed out on Best Director. Daniel Day-Lewis phenomenal depiction of the 16th president of the United States will be sure to bring in the crowds when the biopic opens here in the UK on January 25th. 

Les Miserables gathered nine nominations, with both Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway praised for their acting skills. It's a truly powerful story that beautifully translates to film thanks to the actors live vocal performances and raw emotions.

Ang Lee's adaptation of Yann Martel's novel Life of Pi received an impressive nine nominations. If you haven’t seen this film yet I am urging you to go get your 3d glasses on ASAP. It’s a visual feast.

Skyfall made it in to the Best British Film list but missed out on Best Film. While the Bond franchise is a commercial and cultural phenomenon it is rarely an awards-season favourite. I think it's safe to say that Sam Mendes will still be celebrating in the wake of the announcement that it is has racked in over $1bn worldwide and is now the most successful British film of all time! Ben Affleck’s suspense thriller Argo was nominated in 7 categories and is rumoured to become this year’s wild card winner.

Other popular nominees included are Anna Karenina with six nominations, whilst Django Unchained and Zero Dark Thirty received five. The Master and Amour have four nominations. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Silver Linings Playbook were nominated for three. Hitchcock, Rust and Bone, The Imposter and McCullin have two nominations apiece.


The full list of nominees is available via the BAFTA Website. The winners will be announced at the EE British Academy Film Awards which will take place on Sunday 10 February at London's Royal Opera House.
