The Favourite Scores 12 BAFTA Nominations

Updated: Feb 10, 2019

Emma Stone in The Favourite

BAFTA nominations have just been announced, and no prizes for guessing who's the favourite. Indeed, it's The Favourite, not only the sole title this year to be recognized in both Best Film and Best British Film, but the clear nomination leader with a tremendous 12 nods. It's joined in Best Film by four other formidable contenders, though not fellow British work Bohemian Rhapsody, which suffers its first major miss after an incredible run of successes lately, though almost entirely sweeps the slate for tech category nods. Also absent, as at the SAG awards, is Regina King in Supporting Actress for If Beale Street Could Talk - a ridiculous oversight that could make her prospective road to Oscar somewhat tricky. The annual BAFTA gala ceremony will take place in London on the 10th of february. Nominations in full right here:
