2017 BAFTA Nominations Spotlight The Usual Suspects; La La Land, Arrival All Up For Awards

By

With little over a month to go until the big night, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts has unveiled the 2017 BAFTA nominations, and it’s Damien Chazelle’s La La Land that leads the charge.

Following its historic turn at last weekend’s Golden Globes ceremony – Chazelle’s old-timey musical walked away with seven wins, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor/Actress gongs for Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone – La La Land continues its strong run in this year’s awards season with BAFTA nominations in all of the major categories.

For Best Film, it’ll be competing against Arrival, Manchester By the Sea and Moonlight – three formidable and worthy opponents that have collected scores of nominations between them – along with I, Daniel Blake, Ken Loach’s profound and perceptive portrayal of unemployment and its subsequent stigma in northerly England. By and large, the official BAFTA nominations chime with our own assessment of the year in cinema, and you’ll be able to find the full, comprehensive list of nominees below.
