2015 BAFTA Nominations

BAFTA BannerThis morning the BAFTA nominations were announced for the 2015 awards show (that’s being held on the 8th February) and there is a nice spread of films mentioned. The Grand Budapest Hotel leads the pack with 11 nominations and is closely followed by Birdman and The Theory of Everything which have both collected 10 nominations. I’m particularly pleased to see that Ida has received a couple of nominations for both Best Film Not In The English Language and Best Cinematography, although I had hoped that maybe a Best Actress nomination could have been wrangled as well. Talking about Best Actress nominations Julianne Moore has one for Still Alice, both Mark Ruffalo and Steve Carell have a Best Actor nomination for Foxcatcher and Benedict Cumberbatch has collected his first BAFTA nomination for The Imitation Game.

Read on for the full list below…

  1. I want Pride to win everything.

    1. Haha I should probably get around to seeing it soon!

      1. You won’t regret it.

        1. So I gather from lot and lots of people!

  2. Budapest has been getting much more love over in Europe (which is not surprising). Glad to see Birdman with so many nods (my favorite of the year so far). Also surprised that Meryl didn’t make the cut. I’m really hoping Antonio Sánchez wins for his awesome score. Good to see Nightcrawler nominated in more than one category (can’t wait to see that one). Also didn’t expect for The Lunchbox to be nominated (I thought that one was just OK). Hadn’t seen Steve Carrell’s performance competing as ‘Supporting Actor’ before. Oh, and I’m rooting for Shailene Woodley as Rising Star.

    1. Yeah I know a lot of people who are crazy about it over here.
      I hope to see Birdman this week but by all accounts it’s pretty deserving of its nominations!

      In terms of Risign Star I haven’t seen them all so it’s hard for me to say, I’m hoping that catching Whiplash will allow me to pick Miles Teller out as I’ve heard very good things about him in that film. But right now I think I would have to back Jack O’Connell. Although Margot Robbie was pretty damn memorable in Wolf.

      1. Hope you enjoy Birdman 🙂

        And yeah, aside from Gugu Mbatha-Raw (who I haven’t seen in anything yet), everyone in that category is pretty good from what I’ve seen so far. I still have to give the edge to Shailene. She was just superb in The Descendants and The Fault in our Stars.

        1. Thanks! I probably should see Fault sooner or later!
