'The Shape of Water' Leads BAFTA Awards With 12 Nominations


Following behind are Darkest Hour and Three Billboards, each with 9. 

The BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Award nominations have been announced today--at the head of the pack is The Shape of Water, with 12 noms. Following behind are Darkest Hour and Three Billboards, each with 9.

It's mostly the usual suspects in the main categories--Call Me By Your Name, Dunkirk, Lady Bird, and I, Tonya all did pretty well for themselves. One film we didn't realize was an awards season favorite is suprise sensation Paddington 2, the sequel film in the Paddington Bear series, which earned nominations for Best Supporting Actor (Hugh Grant), Best Adapted Screenplay, and Outstanding British Film.

Two other surprises: entering the Best Actor and Actress categories in a season that hasn't yet shown them much love are Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool's Annette Bening and Jamie Bell.

And of course we're delighted to see Timothee Chalamet and Daniel Kaluuya among the Rising Star nominees, voted on by the public.
