'The King's Speech' Dominates 2011 BAFTAs, but 'Social Network' has a Good Showing

The 2011 Orange British Academy Film Awards were handed out today and to very little surprise The King's Speech led the way with seven BAFTA Awards as it was also the most nominated film among all nominees with 14 total nominations.

Among its achievements it took home Best Picture, Outstanding British Film, Best Actor for Colin Firth, Best Original screenplay for David Seidler and Best Score for Alexandre Desplat. Where the surprises came were in the supporting wins for both Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter showing The Fighter apparently doesn't pack as much of a punch across the pond as it does here.

Also, for those of you trying to predict the Oscars and are wondering which direction to go with Best Director, David Fincher took home the award for The Social Network, one of three wins on the night for the film. Aaron Sorkin also won for Adapted Screenplay and Film Editing.

If I were a betting man… our BAFTA predictions

So, this evening is a pretty big one for British film, and indeed international film as the BAFTA awards are dished out at the Royal Opera House in London. What follows is our predictions as to who we think will up there on the podium as winners this evening. I must repeat that this is who we think will win, not necessarily who Should win…

Now, I have omitted the two short film categories as I haven’t seen any of those movies, but I have listed my picks for the winners of everything else.

As you can see, a favourite to win in the main categories (in my mind) is Christopher Nolan’s Inception. Two reasons. Well, I think that his omission from the Academy Awards will go in his favour for the Best Director category, and I think that it will pick up some notable mentions in the technical categories.

'The King's Speech' Rules, 'Black Swan' Performs Well In BAFTA Nominations

'The King's Speech' Rules, 'Black Swan' Performs Well In BAFTA Nominations
Two things the British apparently love: stammering English monarchs and crazy-eyed New York ballerinas.

Tom Hooper's historical drama "The King's Speech," starring Colin Firth as speech-impeded King George VI, and Darren Aronofsky's "Black Swan," featuring a crazy-eyed Natalie Portman as a dancer on the verge of a "Swan Lake"-induced breakdown, topped the Orange British Academy Film Awards nominations, which the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) announced today. "The King's Speech" led the way with 14 nominations, "Black Swan" scored 12, "Inception" snagged nine, and "True Grit" and "127 Hours" nabbed eight apiece. Golden Globes Best Picture winner and Oscar front runner "The Social Network" earned a more modest six nominations.

The Best Picture field looks a whole lot like the one that competed for Golden Globes Best Picture - Drama: "Black Swan," "Inception," "The King's Speech," "The Social Network" and "True Grit." The sole difference is that

BAFTA Announces 2011 Film Award Nominees

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) have announced their nominations for the 2011 BAFTA Awards (the British equivalent of the Oscars). There’s no real big surprises on the list. The Social Network has been dominating awards circles in North America but The King’s Speech is leading the BAFTAs with 14 nominations, including Best Picture and Outstanding British Film. Black Swan (voted best film here at Sound On Sight) has 12 nominations, True Grit 8 nominations, and Inception 9 nominations. Personally I think the most interesting category is the “Outstanding Debut By a British writer, director, or producer”, which includes the likes of Gareth Edwards (Monsters), Chris Morris (Four Lions), and Banksy (Exit Through the Gift Shop). I can’t wait to see who wins, and I’d be happy with either of these three talented filmmakers.

Hit the jump for a full list of the nominations. Winners will be announced on February 13th.
