Early this morning the BAFTA nominations were announced, after a couple rounds of 'longlist' reveals. One of the big Oscar frontrunners, The Artist, walked away with 12 nominations, including Best Film, Director, Original Screenplay, Leading Actor and Leading Actress. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy gets a moment in the sun with 11 nominations -- not really any surprise that the film would get lots of BAFTA attention -- and Hugo took 9 nods, though mostly for smaller categories. Drive, which has mostly been ignored in the Us awards rounds so far, got a nod for Best Film, and Attack the Block and Submarine were both nominated for Outstanding Debut By a British Writer, Director or Producer. Check out the full nomination list below. The Orange British Academy Film Awards take place on Sunday 12 February at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London. The ceremony will be hosted by Stephen Fry and will be broadcast exclusively on BBC One. »
