While the nominations for the 86th Academy Awards won't arrive until January 16th, the 71st Golden Globes will hand out awards this Sunday at 8pm EST/5pm PST on NBC. But our friends from the United Kingdom have just announced their nominations for the British equivalent of the Oscars.

The BAFTAs are traditionally known for being a little bias when it comes to films that hail from the United Kingdom, which is why Rush may be getting some more accolades here than it will at the Academy Awards (though the film does deserve plenty of praise). The technical awards seem to be the ones shaken up the most by the likes of Behind the Candelabra. However, the Coen Brothers have missed out again on awards for Inside Llewyn Davis, though they do get a Best Original Screenplay nomination to keep them content. We're just glad that Gravity is getting this kind of recognition, and we hope Oscar follows suit. The winners of the BAFTAs will be announced on February 16th, so come back to see all the winners.

Such a shame to see that nudity/drugs in Wolf of Wall Street ruled it out of the BEST FILM nomination while over the top violence is totally fine even in PG13 movies....there is something wrong with society
