‘The Favourite’ Leads BAFTA Awards Nominations – Variety

The Favourite” has scored 12 nominations at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts’ movie awards, far outpacing the rest of the pack.

Behind it came “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “First Man,” “Roma” and “A Star Is Born” with seven BAFTA nominations apiece. “Vice” garnered six noms, “BlacKkKlansman” five, and “Cold War” and “Green Book” four each. Earning three nominations each were “Can You Ever Forgive Me?”, “Mary Poppins Returns,” “Mary Queen of Scots” and “Stan & Ollie.”

All three main actresses in “The Favourite” – Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, and Emma Stone – were recognized with noms, which were unveiled Wednesday. Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga landed best actor and actress nods for “A Star Is Born,” and Cooper was one of the five nominees – all men – for best director.

“Roma” continued its awards-season run, landing nominations for both best film and best film in a foreign language, as well as a director nomination for Alfonso Cuaron.

The BAFTAs are the most prestigious film awards outside the U.S. and are often seen as a harbinger of the Oscars. The nominations were announced by actors Will Poulter and Hayley Squires at BAFTA’s headquarters in London.

They will be handed out at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Sunday, Feb. 10. “Absolutely Fabulous” star Joanna Lumley returns as host of the ceremony.
