Nominations For The 2016 BAFTA Awards

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) has just announced there nominations and there’s quite a lot to process, so let’s start from the top.

Steven Spielberg’s Cold War drama Bridge of Spies and Todd Haynes’ gorgeous relationship drama Carol have tied for the lead with nine nominations apiece, with both films receiving nominations for Best Film, Best Director, and Best Screenplay (in their respective categories). Not far behind is Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s revenge epic The Revenant with eight nominations, including Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Editing.

What may come as a surprise to some is that Adam McKay’s comedy-drama about the 2008 financial crisis did rather well. It may have only received five nominations, but they were all major nods: Best Film, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor (Christian Bale), and Best Editing. Meanwhile, the film that has been dominating the American critics’ awards, Spotlight, made a small, but decent showing, earning nods for Best Film, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actor (Mark Ruffalo).

MORE NEWS FROM THE WEB

There’s bound to be some disappointment for those who were hoping to see a grand showing for George Miler’s action opus Mad Max: Fury Road, but alas, its appearance has been restricted to the technical categories where it has earned seven nominations, including Best Editing, Best Cinematography, Best Production Design, and Best Special Visual Effects.

With these nominations, it’s rather difficult to tell exactly which film they like the best overall. Bridge of Spies and The Big Short hit every major category, including an acting nod for each, so these would appear to be their frontrunners, but you never really know with the British Academy. The winners will be announced on February 14th, so be sure to join us then when we’ll bring you a live-blogging of the winners as they are announced.
