This morning the BAFTAs announced their nominees for 2018.
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts is the biggest awards group outside of America. Traditionally, the films nominated here are also reflected at the Oscars.
There were a few surprises with this mornings nominees, namely another omission of any female director in the directing category. Greta Gerwig has been expected to land this nomination within most awards groups, but as of yet keeps being overlooked for her directorial debut Lady Bird. Lady Bird also didn't make the cut in the Best Film category, but the BAFTAs only nominate five, where at the Oscars there can be up to ten nominees.
