The British film industry has done well this past year, with Bafta voters showing support for home-grown motion pictures including the exceptionally successful Bond film Skyfall, receiving 8 nominations including best British film and best supporting actor and actress for Javier Bardem and Judi Dench. Other British films have similarly done well, with the adaptation of acclaimed musical Les Miserables receiving 9 nominations including Lead Actor (Hugh Jackman) and Actress (Anne Hathaway) in addition to Joe Wright’s of the Russian novel Anna Karenina receiving 7 nominations.

Leading the Baftas is Steven Spielberg’s historical drama Lincoln with 10 nominations, extended to most of the major categories including best picture, best actor (Daniel Day Lewis) and best supporting actress, though Spielberg has missed out in the Best Director category. This makes Lincoln the frontrunner for success in the Oscars race, beginning when nominations are announced tomorrow as the film has already topped the Baftas and Golden Globes Awards, which take place on Sunday.

Success was also found in Ang Lee’s surprise hit Life of Pi which received 9 nominations including Best Film, Best Director and a number of technical nominations. Argo, a thriller directed by and starring Ben Affleck and seen by many as his return to form received 7 nominations which include Lead Actor and Best Director for Affleck himself alongside Best Film.  The Hobbit (directed by Peter Jackson) received no nods in any of the major categories.

Other films to get nods include Zero Dark Thirty, directed by Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker), Django Unchained, Hitchcock, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and The Master.

The Bafta awards are voted for by roughly 6,500 members, apart from the Rising Star award, whose nominees are chosen by a panel and then voted for by the public.

The Baftas will take place on 10 February at the Royal Opera House in London, two weeks before the Oscars take place in Hollywood. The ceremony will be hosted by Stephen Fry.
