2013 Oscar Watch: The BAFTAs Reveal Their Nominations

The BAFTAs aka British Academy Film Awards really don’t factor too much in the Oscar race. It’s just another excuse to dress up and publicly campaign for your chances at securing an Academy Award. That being said, their nominations fall mostly in line with many of the Oscar precursors. Even across the pond, Steven Spielberg’s film about an American president is the one to beat. Lincoln dominated with 10 nominations. The historical drama secured nods for Best Film, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress to name a few.

The musical Les Miserables and Ang Lee’s Life of Pi came in second with 9 nominations a piece. The 23rd installment of the James Bond franchise, Skyfall, picked up 8 BAFTAs including nods for Javier Bardem and Dame Judi Dench in the supporting acting categories. Anna Karenina which has been mostly shut out in many Oscar precursors, racked up several nominations mostly in the creative categories such as makeup, production design, costume design etc…

The BAFTAs, hosted by Stephen Fry, will take place on Sunday, February 10 at London’s Royal Opera House and be broadcast on BBC One. Check out all the nominees below.
