BAFTA 2011 Film Nominations (for films from 2010)

The BAFTA's (Orange British Academy Film Awards) nominations were announced today and it's not a huge surprize to see The King's Speech take a major lead with 14 nominations which when you look at it the film is nominated in every category it seems like it would qualify for. I'm thinking Colin Firth is a lock for leading actor, but with so many other prominent films this year I think it's too early to say more than that. Other big set of noms goes to Black Swan with 12, Inception with 9 and both 127 Hours & True Grit with 8 noms each.

I think the biggest surprize for me was seeing Hailee Steinfeld for True Grit for Leading Actress - which she was, and it's deserved, but I really thought we'd see her nominated (and winning) in supporting. This totally is going to throw off my predictions!

A fair number of interesting crossover titles over slightly unexpected categories including The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo up for 3 awards including Film Not In the English Language (not surprizing), Lead Actress Noomi Rapace (well-deserved) and Adapted Screenplay (unexpected but very well-deserved). Also How to Train Your Dragon is up for 2 awards included Animated (not surprizing) and Original Music (more surprizing) and also a double-nom for Andrew Garfield up for Supporting Actor for The Social Network (which only got 4 noms) and also Orange Wednesdays Rising Star. In fact, the Orange Wednesdays Rising Star (which is voted by the public) is one category where I'm cheering everyone on and all of the actors on the list I consider myself a big cheerleader for and they are: Gemma Arterton (The Disappearance of Alice Creed, Clash of the Titans (2010), Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Tamara Drewe), Andrew Garfield (The Social Network & Never Let Me Go, Boy A and The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus), Tom Hardy (Inception, Bronson and Star Trek: Nemesis), Aaron Johnson (Nowhere Boy, Kick-Ass) and Emma Stone (Easy A, Paper Man)- and many of them are on my 2010 Ones to Watch list. Oh yeah, me & the BAFTA's have our eyes on the same set of fabulous folks.

The BAFTA's (Orange British Academy Film Awards) will take place on Sunday February 13th, 2011. See more info at the BAFTA site.
