BUDAPEST And BIRDMAN To Battle THEORY OF EVERYTHING For BAFTA - Nominations Revealed
The nominations for this year's EE British Academy Film Awards, better known as the BAFTAs, were announced this morning, and Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel scored an impressive 11 nominations, closely followed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman and James Marsh's (no relation) The Theory Of Everything, which both walked away with 10 nods apiece. Morten Tyldum's The Imitation Game bagged 7 noms, while Richard Linklater's Oscar favourite Boyhood only managed 5 nominations., tying with Damien Chazelle's Whiplash.

It was great to see a few ScreenAnarchy favourites get some recognition, with Dan Gilroy's Nightcrawler, Jonathan Glazer's Under The Skin and Yann Demange's '71 all making an appearance, as well as other hotly-tipped British offerings such as Mike Leigh's Mr. Turner and Matthew Warchus' Pride. It's especially heartwarming to see Paul King score a Best Adapted Screenplay nomination for Paddington.

The BAFTAs will be awarded in London on Sunday, 8 February.

Not that we needed it, but if there is any further proof that BAFTA will ignore films made by/about women of colour, it's the complete shut-out of BELLE. It's the kind of costume drama that BAFTA usually eats up, about an important historical event, and an excellent film to boot, except of course, it's about a black woman, and directed by a black woman, so why would it be nominated? An absolute disgrace.

Ah I knew there was something missing that had been bugging me. Yeah, big surprise not to see BELLE feature at all here. I still haven't seen it, but the British critics have been raving about it all year.
