2013 Bafta Noms Announced

2013 Bafta Nominations
They’re in. The 2013 Bafta nominations were announced this morning, and while it’s a mixed bag, there are few big surprises. Lincoln leads with an impressive 10 nods, followed closely by Life of Pi, Argo and Les Misérables. The nominations certainly reflect a year that celebrated Britishness, with Skyfall and Les Mis faring very well indeed.

Of course, there are a few decisions that will upset (No Best Picture for The Master? Really?) but don’t forget that the Oscar nominations will follow tomorrow, and could look quite different. It is, however, nice to see some recognition for a year that was strong in the documentary category, with contributions such as The Impostor, which is nominated for Best Documentary and Outstanding Debut.

But enough talk. Here are the nominations:

    Nothing says Britain and British film like Lincoln. Good to see it leading the nominations.
