Bafta nominations announced


The nominations for the 2011 Orange British Academy Film Awards have been announced, and The King’s Speech and Black Swan are leading the way with 14 and 12 nominations apiece.

Other films that have been nominated include 127 Hours, Inception, The Kids Are Alright and Alice in Wonderland, all of which have been popular in awards season so far.

The Social Network, which was the biggest winner at the Golden Globes last weekend, will be competing in six categories.

Made in Dagenham, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and the forthcoming Coen Brothers film True Grit, all of which were absent from the Golden Globe shortlist, feature prominently in acting and design categories.

The announcement was made at Bafta’s headquarters this morning by actors Dominic Cooper and Talulah Riley.

The academy’s chief executive, Amanda Berry, called it a “really exciting list of nominations this year,” commenting that “three out of the five director nominees are Brits, and I think that just proves that British talent works throughout the world”.

The ceremony will be hosted by Jonathan Ross on February 13th.

And the nominees are . . .
