Obviously there's a bit of a skew towards more British made films, but that's fine since we do some of the same bias here when the Oscar nominations are announced. Either way, it's nice to hear Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy getting some much deserved awards love, not to mention several big nominations for Nicholas Winding Refn's Drive. Also glad that We Need to Talk About Kevin got some nominations, and Attack the Block received at least one mention. Anyway, since we won't be able to watch the telecast of the BAFTAs, we'll be sure to post the winners the day after they're announced on February 12th.

    looks like kirsten dusnt is still suffering from Trier's rants she wont even get nominated  at this rate
    • Victorward80
      Am glad someone else has picked up on this - Dunst delivered one if her finest performances to date but it does look like she will get overlooked now. Am suprised Carey Mulligan got a look in as Supporting Actress in Drive, good as she was she didnt really do to much.

    wow, the 'Outstanding Debut' award has got a great set of nominations! i like that award - could the Oscars not do something similar? i think Swinton deserves to win every award going for We Need to Talk About Kevin, but i think it's too much for many; Streep-plays-Thatcher is an easier vote winner.
