Belfast, The Power of the Dog, and Licorice Pizza rack up significant BAFTA nominations while Lady Gaga becomes the only Best Actress Oscar hopeful to hit all the major precursors.

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has delivered a royal blow to the awards hierarchy, as Pablo Larraín's Kristen Stewart-led, critically lauded Princess Diana drama Spencer was completely shut out of the 2022 BAFTA nominations.

Spencer received zero BAFTA nods when nominations were unveiled Thursday, after appearing on only a handful of the esteemed group's longlists that were announced earlier this year. Leading the BAFTA nominations, however, is Denis Villeneuve's sci-fi blockbuster Dune, which picked up 11 nominations — including one for Best Film alongside likely Oscar contenders like current Best Picture leader Belfast, as well as Don't Look Up, Licorice Pizza, and The Power of the Dog — following its stellar performance across several guild nominations (notably the Directors Guild of America and Producers Guild of America) last week.

Elsewhere among the BAFTA nominations, Lady Gaga (House of Gucci) became the only likely Best Actress Oscar contender to hit all of the race's major acting precursors, previously including the Golden Globes, Critics Choice Awards, the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Notable pre-season contenders like Jessica Chastain (The Eyes of Tammy Faye), Olivia Colman (The Lost Daughter), and presumed frontrunner Nicole Kidman (Being the Ricardos) all sat this set out, despite their respective projects all picking up at least one other nomination each in other BAFTA categories.

Awards mainstays Will Smith (King Richard), Ariana DeBose (West Side Story), Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Power of the Dog), Benedict Cumberbatch (The Power of the Dog), Aunjanue Ellis (King Richard), Caitríona Balfe (Belfast), and Ruth Negga (Passing) also appeared among an eclectic crop of acting nominees — which were again determined by a revamped selection process that included the top two nominees selected by BAFTA's entire acting chapter, plus a remaining number of nominees designated by a smaller jury.

BAFTA notably reworked its nomination process following backlash surrounding a lack of diversity and overall representation as part of its nominees, resulting in a singular crop of nominees in recent years.
