Joker, The Irishman, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and 1917 lead the BAFTA nominations

It is the film industry’s big award season which means apart from celebrities doing shameless self-promotion, it also means that every film association wants to have a say on who they feel are the best films of the year. Not all awards are equal though which is why you can’t really take many of the different awards that come out too seriously. Outside of the Oscars and Golden Globes tough, the next biggest awards show and the one with the most clout outside of the USA is definitely the BAFTAs. It might not be as prestigious as the Oscars, but with focus on technical categories which also appear at the Oscars, it’s perhaps the only other award show that offers the same level of depth and most likely to truly predict who could be receiving the big nominations at the Oscars.

However, much like award shows themselves, you aren’t here to read my waffling. You want to see who the nominees are, so without further delay, here we are:

Interesting! While 1917 and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood were the big winners at the Golden Globes and arguably the front-runners for the big awards, Todd Philip’s Joker walked away with the most nominations with 11. The Irishman and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood each received 10, followed by Sam Mendes’ war epic with 9.

There are a few surprises as well – like Margot Robbie securing not one but two best-supporting actress nominations, the Lion King deemed not animated by the BAFTAs (whereas the Globes consider it as animated) and not even nominated here. Perhaps a more accurate reflection to what will happen at the Oscars. Also, Christian Bale not getting nominated for his performance in Ford v Ferrari (which goes by the name of Le Mans ’66 in Europe) is a little disappointing, but it does perhaps speak to a stellar year for many of the actors involved that I can’t fault any of the performance on the list either.

As for the rest of the awards, it seems consistent with everything we have seen and perhaps a sign that there may be few surprises in store for the Oscar nominations when they get announced.
