BAFTA Nominations

BAFTAThe BAFTA 2016 nominations are in!

Today the British Academy of Film and Television Arts have unveiled their nomination list and Carol and Bridge of Spies are leading the pack with nine nominations each.

We’re pretty pleased overall with the selection BAFTA have made here, alongside recognising Carol (which we loved) they’ve nominated the excellent Mad Max: Fury Road in seven different categories, Brooklyn in six and sci-fi favourite of the year Ex Machina recieved a total of five nominations.

We are also very pleased to see a really strong ‘Film Not in the English Language’ category this year which bosts five really strong contenders for the winning title: The AssassinForce MajeureTheebTimbuktu and Wild Tales.

The awards ceremony will take place on the 14th February at the Royal Opera House, which gives us just over a month to furiously debate what the academy got wrong and right and who we think are the most deserving winners….

  1. I think Inside Out should be in the Best Film category. Also I’m sad to see Emily Blunt not get a nom for Sicario. Apart from that the list is OK

    1. Hey Mikey!
      There are a few omissions which seem odd, like those you mention and also Charlotte Rampling’s absence. There’s a lot of good stuff on here too though which I’m pleased to see made the cut.
