BAFTA Nominations!


La La Land

Hello, my award show junkies!  The season of nominations continues with the announcement of the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Film Award nominations.  Once again La La Land has secured the most nominations with a total of 11.  The nominations include Best Film, Best Leading Actor (Ryan Gosling), Best Leading Actress (Emma Stone), Best Original Screenplay (Damien Chazelle), and the David Lean Award for Achievement in Direction (Damien Chazelle). With all of the BAFTA nominations and the fact that the film picked up a nomination for the Producers Guild Awards, I would say that La La Land has solidified its place as the front-runner to win Best Picture at the Oscars.



In a surprising turn, Arrival picked up nine nominations including: Best Film, Best Leading Actress (Amy Adams), Best Adapted Screenplay (Eric Heisserer), and the David Lean Award for Achievement in Direction (Denis Villeneuve).  Considering the film received only two nominations for the Golden Globes (Best Actress, Drama for Amy Adams and Best Original Score), this strong showing at the BAFTAs will boost its chances of scoring a Best Picture nomination come January 24.

Manchester by the Sea and Moonlight were also nominated for Best Film.  Both films also picked up nominations for several members of their cast.  Golden Globe winner Casey Affleck received a Best Leading Actor nomination, and Michelle Williams received a nomination for Best Supporting Actress for their roles in Manchester.  Mahershala Ali and Naomie Harris both picked up nominations for Best Supporting Actor and Actress, respectively, for their work in Moonlight.

I, Daniel Blake

The real surprise in the Best Film category was the inclusion of I, Daniel Blake.  Never heard of it?  That is not surprising.  It opened in a limited release here in the US on December 23, without much fanfare.  Blake tells the story of a carpenter who goes on welfare after an injury.  While circumnavigating the British welfare system, he meets a single mother in a similar situation.  The film received nominations for Best Film, Outstanding British Film of the Year, Best Supporting Actress (Hayley Squires), Best Original Screenplay (Paul Laverty), and the David Lean Award for Achievement in Direction (Ken Loach).

There were actually several surprises at the BAFTAs this year.  Jake Gyllenhaal received a nomination for Best Leading Actor for his role in Nocturnal Animals.  While the film has been getting much award hype, it is usually for Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s supporting and Tom Ford’s direction (both received nominations).  Emily Blunt received her second BAFTA nomination for her role in the film adaptation of the best-selling book The Girl on the Train.  Blunt received a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for this role, as well.  This could make her a dark horse in the Best Actress category for the Oscars.  Denzel Washington did not receive a nomination for his role in Fences, while his screen counterpart, Viola Davis, did.  I was also surprised not to see Octavia Spencer receive a nomination for Hidden Figures. She has been called the standout performance in a strong film.

What surprised you?  Is there anyone that you cannot believe wasn’t nominated?  Let us know on Twitter or Facebook.

BAFTA Nominations


Hello again, my cinophile friends.  Last Friday, our friends across the pond (aka the British) announced the nominations for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) film awards.  As this is the final major award nomination announcement prior to the announcement of the Oscar nominees on Thursday, the nominees will likely be extremely similar.

After being snubbed by the Producers Guild Awards, Carol made a major comeback by garnering a total of nine nominations, including Best Film, Best Director (Todd Haynes), Best Actress (Cate Blanchett), and Best Supporting Actress (Rooney Mara).

The Steven Spielberg Cold War drama Bridge of Spies also received nine nominations, tying Carol as the most nominated film this year. The love for Spies has been cooling, as it was one of the earliest Oscar bait films to be released this year, and has been mostly forgotten with the exception of Mark Rylance’s performance.  Once again, Rylance has nabbed a nomination for Best Supporting Actor, making him a sure-thing when it comes to Oscar nominations.

Golden Globe winner The Revenant also did quite well, with eight nominations, including Best Film, Best Actor (Leonardo DiCaprio), and Best Director (Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu).  BAFTA winner Tom Hardy was not among the nominees for the film.  While Hardy’s villainous turn in the film has garnered critical acclaim, he has only received a handful of Critics Award nominations for the role.

Rounding out the Best Film category are The Big Short and Spotlight.  While Spotlight is considered a frontrunner for Best Picture at the Oscars, it only came away with two other nominations: Best Supporting Actor (Mark Ruffalo) and Best Original Screenplay.  The Big Short’s director Adam McKay was nominated for Best Director, edging out Quentin Tarantino for The Hateful Eight, Tom Hooper for The Danish Girl, and Spotlight director Tom McCarthy.

There were a few other surprises sprinkled throughout the major categories.  Maggie Smith received her twelfth BAFTA film nomination for her role as a proud homeless woman in The Lady in the Van.  Her inclusion edged out Jennifer Lawrence for Joy.  Helen Mirren was noticeable absent from the Best Supporting Actress category.  Her work in Trumbo has already gained her a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination, so this was a surprise.  She was edged out by Jennifer Jason Leigh for The Hateful Eight and Julie Walters for Brooklyn.  Thus far, the Supporting Actress category is the one that has no clear frontrunners.

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Award Nominations

We are coming down to the wire, my little Award Show Buffs.  The British Academy of Film and TelevisionArts (BAFTA) Award nominations came out early this morning.  This is the last of the big nominations to be announced prior to the Academy Award nominations announcement on Thursday, January 16. 
While the BAFTAs are usually a good indicator of what to expect from the Academy Award nominations, several strong contenders from this year are not represented since the films were not released in Britain in 2013.  An example of this would be the omission of Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto’s performances in Dallas Buyers Club, as the film will not open in the UK until February 7, 2014.
The Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra is also being honored by the BAFTAs.  While this was a TV movie that premiered on HBO in the United States, it was released in theaters in the United Kingdom, making it eligible for the BAFTAs.
These various rules have allowed several surprise nominees to sneak into races that are most likely locked up for the Academy Awards.  For instance, the Best Actor race will probably be between Bruce Dern, Tom Hanks, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Matthew McConaughey.  However, that last slot is up for grabs.  Both Christian Bale and Leonardo DiCaprio will benefit from this nomination, but a dark horse could be Robert Redford’s mostly silent performance in All is Lost.  The question is who will reap the benefits when it comes to the Oscars? 
Surprises? Snubs? What-were-they-thinking nominations?  Tweet us @moviefiednyc and let us know what you think!
