2012 BAFTA Awards - nominations

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) has announced their nominees for the 15th Annual BAFTA Film Awards.

To no one's surprise, Michel Hazanavicius' The Artist is again the frontrunner, taking 12 nominations. Its mentions include each of the top categories of Best Film, Director, Screenplay, Actor (Jean Dujardin) and Actress (Bérénice Bejo).

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy was a very close second with 11 nominations. It was the only film to be nominated for both Best Film and Outstanding British Film. It also picked up nods for Director (Tomas Alfredson), Screenplay and Actor (Gary Oldman).

Hugo was next with nine nominations. It did not, however, receive a nomination for Best Film nor any acting categories. Martin Scorsese was nominated for Best Director and has been previously announced at the recipient of the Academy Fellowship.

Marilyn had tied Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy for the lead with 16 mentions on the BAFTA Awards longlist. It fell to six nominations in total, including three for actors Michelle Williams, Kenneth Branagh and Judi Dench.

The Help took five nominations for Best Film, Adapted Screenplay and for actresses Viola Davis, Ocatvia Spencer and Jessica Chastain. Spencer and Chastain compete against each other in the Supporting Actress category. War Horse came away with five nominations, but all in the craft and technical areas.

The Iron Lady
competes in four spots, as does surprise Best Film nominee Drive. Golden Globe winner The Descendants was nominated for Best Film but only has a total of three nominations.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Midnight in Paris had tied The Artist and War Horse for third place on the longlist with thirteen mentions, but both dropped dramatically in the final tally. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo managed just two nominations for music and cinematography and Midnight in Paris received only one for Woody Allen's screenplay.

The Canadian film Incendies by Denis Villeneuve is represented in the Film Not in the English Language category. It competes against Pina by Wim Wenders, Potiche by François Ozon, A Separation by Asghar Farhadi and The Skin I Live In by Pedro Almodovar.

Winners will be announced on Sunday, February 12 at London's Royal Opera House.
