BAFTA Nominations in 2009 (films from 2008)

The BAFTA nominations have been announced! Topping the list with the most nominations is Slumdog Millionaire and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button both snagging 11 nods each. High marks also go to The Dark Knight with 9 nominations (Heath Ledger as supporting actor along with many technical nominations). We see the names of actors appear multiple times, sometimes in the same category! Kate Winslet, just after her double win at the Golden Globes has been nominated for her roles in Revolutionary Road and The Reader, but this time both for Lead Actress. Brad Pitt has also been nominated but in different catagories: Lead Actor for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Supporting for Burn After Reading.

The BAFTA's (Orange British Academy Film Awards) will take place on Sunday February 8th 2009 at the Royal Opera House in London. See more info at the BAFTA site.
