The 1960’s set Bridge of Spies and the 1950’s set Carol lead the field at this year’s BAFTA Awards with nine nominations each including Best Film which also includes The Big Short, The Revenant and Spotlight. When it came to celebrating the best of British cinema, the British Academy nominated 45 Years, Amy, Brooklyn, The Danish Girl, Ex Machina and The Lobster. Best Animated Film nominations went to Inside Out, Minions and Shaun the Sheep. In the acting categories, Alicia Vikander was nominated for her role in The Danish Girl along with Brie Larson for Room, Cate Blanchett for Carol, Maggie Smith for The Lady in the Van and Saoirse Ronan in Brooklyn.

Supporting Actor nominations went to Benicio Del Toro for Sicario, Christian Bale for The Big Short, Idris Elba in Beasts of No Nation, Mark Ruffalo for Spotlight and Mark Rylance for Bridge of Spies. Alicia Vikander was a double nominee landing a Best Supporting Actress nomination for Ex Machina along with Jennifer Jason Leigh for The Hateful Eight, Julie Walters in Brooklyn, Kate Winselt for Steve Jobs and Rooney Mara for Carol. While fan favorites Mad Max: Fury Road and Star Wars: The Force Awakens both failed to earn Best Film nominations, they did manage to land a number of awards including 7 for Mad Max with Best Cinematography, Editing, Production Design, Costume, Make Up & Hair, Sound and Best Visual Effects. The Force Awakens meanwhile earned 4 nominations in the Original Music, Production Design, Sound and Visual Effects categories. Despite Fury Road’s 7 nominations, Tom Hardy was completely absent from the list for that role as well as his other big 2015 releases; The Revenant and Legend. Other notable snubs include the biggest British film of the year, Spectre, which received zero nominations, Johnny Depp for Black Mass, for which he received a Screen Actors Guild nomination and Helen Mirren, who is up for a Golden Globe Award this weekend for Trumbo and is a double Screen Actors Guild nominee for both Trumbo and Woman In Gold.
