With the Golden Globes behind us and the guild nominations coming in, we’re right in the midst of awards season. On the highly publicized and oh-so-glitzy road to the Oscars, one of the last stop-offs is the BAFTAs, the British Academy of Film and Television’s annual movie awards (typically a week before the American Academy’s turn), which has just had its set of nominations announced. It doesn’t shake up the awards race all that much, but does champion a few movies that haven’t had much of a look-in so far this season.

The biggest film is, in a move that will surprise no one, La La Land, with a total of eleven nominations. Post-Globes the film is the firm favourite to win big on Oscar night and with closest rival Moonlight only getting four noms this definitely inches it ahead that bit more. The films following up the nomination numbers are a bit more interesting – Arrival and Nocturnal Animals on nine each. The former has been getting attention despite its sci-fi story, particularly for Amy Adams’ central performance, but the latter has been an outside shout with just a handful of mentions before Aaron Taylor-Johnson beat out favourite Mahershala Ali for Best Supporting Actor at the Globes. With the sheer amount of nominations for the film here – alongside core technicals, Jake Gyllenhaal has a Best Actor nod and Tom Ford a nom for Best Director (although it couldn’t quite crack Best Picture) – it’s possible it could become a bigger presence in the race.

Being the BAFTAs, there is a typically more British focus, which is best seen with Ken Loach’s searing social commentary I, Daniel Blake, which deservedly bagged five nominations in core categories. Emily Blunt also earned a nomination for The Girl on the Train, an outside contender in the race getting some notice on home turf.

Alongside the usual suspects (the major omission in comparison to the American awards is Fences, which only has one nom for Viola Davis), several big blockbusters appear. Most notable is Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which got five nominations, including one for Best British Film. It’s likely a move to ensure that category is dominated by little-seen gems, but is a nice recognition of the breadth of the UK film industry. The Harry Potter prequel is joined in the technicals by Doctor Strange and Rogue One on three and two nominations respectively.
