British Academy of Film and Television Arts Nominations Announced

By Josh Wilding - 1/9/2013

This year's nominees for the 65th EE BAFTA Film Awards were announced today in London, and while neither earned a "Best Film" nod, both Django Unchained and Skyfall did well with a respective 8 and 5 nominations each. There are no real surprises here despite some notable snubs (Tom Hooper has once again been ignored for "Best Director", while The Dark Knight Rises - directed by British helmer Christopher Nolan - doesn't get so much as a single mention). Whether or not this is any sort of indication as to how the Academy Awards will play out remains to be seen. The winners will be announced in a ceremony hosted by Stephen Fry on February 10th.

nice list
TheOneWhoKnocks - 1/9/2013, 4:00 AM
Not a single nomination from CBM in any category...sad.
RadicalDuck - 1/9/2013, 4:02 AM
Hope Skyfall wins in the cinematography section. Some shots in that film were just fantastic.
rocky - 1/9/2013, 4:07 AM
I'm actually surprised that they (the Brits) didn't throw Nolan or TDKR at least a token nomination
marvel72 - 1/9/2013, 4:11 AM
no nomination for the dark knight rises,i wonder why?
Spideyguy94 - 1/9/2013, 4:12 AM
@rocky I am as well and I'm british. Clearly the people who nominate this see that the TDKR is not as good as its made out to be.

Why is it that Bardem and Dench are getting praise for Skyfall, but Craig isn't?
Spideyguy94 - 1/9/2013, 4:45 AM
@ACira considering the only CGI in TDKR was the bat, parts of the plane scene and the chase at the end I don't see how it can be nominated. I thought TASM, dredd, or looper ahould be nominated in that catergory, regardless of whether you like the movie's or not
batfan175 - 1/9/2013, 5:01 AM
@darthbanon: I'm just glad TDK got best supporting actor and some technical nominations in 2008 when the Marvel films will never get nominated for anything whatsoever.
Newbus - 1/9/2013, 5:15 AM
@batfan175

Avengers is in Special Visual Effects so suck on it.
AC1 - 1/9/2013, 5:22 AM
@Spideyguy94 agreed, I think TDKR should have been nominated for the score, nothing else seemed award worthy in the film. TASM should've had at least a Special Visual Effects nomination based on the high school fight scene alone - the entire sequence of Spidey and Lizard on the ceiling is completely CGI, including the school itself; it's seamlessly integrated and probably some of the best CGI I've seen outside of The Lord of the Rings/Hobbit films or Avatar or the Star Wars prequels.
Name - 1/9/2013, 5:28 AM
ACira, watched TASM the other day. Brilliant again, that school fight is defintiely one of the best in the genre so far. Best representaion of spidermans abilities in a fight so far.
AC1 - 1/9/2013, 5:28 AM
Or rather, nothing in TDKR apart from the score seemed award worthy in that some of the supporting actors could've been nominated but they wouldn't stand a chance against the other nominees.

@manymade1 because in their category they were very strong. While Daniel Craig's performance held up well within the film, it wouldn't stand a chance against Day-Lewis, Phoenix, Cooper, or Jackman. It may be on a par with Affleck's performance in Argo, but there had to be a cut-off point and unfortunately Craig was probably just on the other side of it, perhaps along with Christian Bale.

@ Marvel72

It might be because it sucked donkeyballs.
marvel72 - 1/9/2013, 5:40 AM
@ batfan175

don't cry now but the avengers has been nominated for visual effects.

so the "marvel films will never get nominated for anything whatsoever"comment was a bit stupid of you.

i don't care if marvel films get nominated or win awards as long as the films are good/very good & i enjoy them i don't care about some golden mask or statue lots of good movies don't win awards.

its only you batty boys that think that the dark knight rises deserves all these awards but it don't,hence why its not nominated for best picture,best director or actor.
marvel72 - 1/9/2013, 5:45 AM
@ coldblood6

XD hahaha i don't think it sucked donkeyballs,i've seen worse.it had its moments but it wasn't anything special.
silverdog - 1/9/2013, 5:46 AM
Quit whining about "snubs". the only nomination worthy things in TDKR were cinematography and score and not even those can be called "the best of the year". other than that, just expect nominations for design, effects, sound... right next to the avengers, the hobbit and other "lesser" movies...(ohh, the shame)

When it comes to script, direction or acting, only expect the word "dark" when it goes between "zero" and "thirty"....

its not the lesson in humility Nolan groupies deserve, but its the one they need right now.
Spideyguy94 - 1/9/2013, 5:52 AM
@batfan175 your a moron, you thought I called JGL a bad actor because I said I was slightly disappointed he wasn't star lord, despite the fact I said my excitement for sin city a dame to kill for has gone up a notch because he signed on, and I also said I hope he gets to star in a future marvel studios movie as a bigger character. So before you tell me to never talk about cinema again, I suggest you learn how to read you f*cking imbecile.
KNIGHT3000 - 1/9/2013, 6:32 AM
ZERO DARK THIRTY was kind of a let down for me, nice build up but... I mean you make a movie about killing Bin Laden, then you show women getting shot, but not Bin Ladin? F#ckin FAIL.
Ceejay - 1/9/2013, 10:29 AM
SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK! Hell Yeah!

Best film of the year for me, followed by Life of Pi and Lincoln.
