BAFTA Nominations 2017: La La Land leads


Stephen Fry Bafta 2After a record-breaking turn at the Golden Globes last weekend it looks like La La Land is in for a great deal more praise as awards season gets into full swing; especially as the British Academy Of Film And Television Arts has just just announced the full list of 2017 BAFTA nominations, with La La Land clearly leading the pack in terms of nominations.

Considered by many to be the British Oscars, the EE sponsored BAFTA awards ceremony (the 70th annual BAFTA awards show) will once again be hosted by Stephen Fry, and take place at the Royal Albert Hall in London on 12 February.

La La Land has amassed a highly impressive 11 nominations (including high-profile noms such as Best Film, Best Director, and Best Actor and best Actress for Ryan  Gosling and Emma Stone respectively), seconded by two Amy Adams movies; sci-fi Arrival, and psychological thriller Nocturnal Animals; both of which garnered 9 nominations, despite relatively little talk of awards praise Stateside.

Manchester By The Sea earned six nominations, while Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, I, Daniel Blake and Hacksaw Ridge and Lion all walked away with five, and Moonlight secured itself four nods.

As always though there are some noticeable absences, including Martin Scorsese’s Silence (a hard-hitting passion project which failed to earn even a single nomination, echoing the decision of the Golden Globes), Love And Friendship, and even the much talked-about American Honey (which picked up a sole nomination for Best British Film).

You’ll find a full list of nominations below, following BAFTA’s official nomination announcement video (where Sophie Turner and Dominic Cooper announced this year’s nominees).

As always you can let us know your thoughts on the nominations; what’s missing, what didn’t deserve to be included, or what/who you want to win; in the comments section below.
