'The Artist,' 'Tinker Tailor' lead BAFTA nominations

Posted on

Oscar frontrunner The Artist leads the nominees for this year’s British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards with 12 nominations, followed by Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy with 11. Though it wasn’t nominated for Best Film, Hugo also fared well with 9 nominations. The Artist‘s Bérénice Bejo was listed in the lead actress category despite her supporting campaign on these shores. Left out of the acting races: J. Edgar‘s Leonardo DiCaprio, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo‘s Rooney Mara, Drive‘s Albert Brooks, and The Descendants‘ Shailene Woodley. (Albert Nobbs costars Glenn Close and Janet McTeer were not eligible since their film didn’t open in the UK in time.) War Horse, meanwhile, received five craft nominations but was shut out of all the major categories. Viewers can watch the BAFTA ceremony on Sunday, Feb. 12 at 8 pm ET on BBC America.
