It’s awards season once again, and with La La Land’s great night at the Golden Globes over the weekend there’s a fair chance that Damien Chazelle’s love letter to cinema will do similar business at 2017’s BAFTA awards. With the Globes having given the first indication of where the British and American academies may focus in their award nominations all eyes will be on London on the 12th of February and Hollywood on the 26th for the results.

This morning from the Princess Anne Theatre in BAFTA’s offices in London Sophie Turner and Dominic Cooper revealed the nominations to a room full of jourbalists ready to scribe what they say in double-quick time!

The aforementioned La La Land and the critically acclaimed Manchester by the Sea from Kenneth Lonergan have garnered the requisite awards buzz to be showered in nominations, but many more are in with a chance. Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight, Martin Scorsese’s Silence and Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge may also see some awards glory.

Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival appears on the Best Picture list, however where the two academies often differ in is the number of British films on the BAFTA list. We see Andrea Arnold’s American Honey side up with Ken Loach’s I, Daniel Blake on the list of nominations.

BAFTA 2017 awards

Mike Mills’ 20th Century Women may make its presence felt with an Actress nomination for Annette Bening, and Natalie Portman has seen a nomination for her portrayal of Jackie Kennedy. Best Actor nods have gone to Casey Affleck after his Globes victory, and Ryan Gosling will also certainly be in contention.

As always it points to another fine year of film, and we’ll be keeping our eyes on the BAFTA awards ceremony in a month’s time for the results.
