Nominees // 70th BAFTA AWARDS



The British equivalent to the Academy Awards, the BAFTAs, announced its nominees for the 2016 awards season, including a vibrant showing for Damien Chazelle's La La Land and surprise heavy-hitter Nocturnal Animals.


The Tom Ford film missed out on a Best Film nod, but still earned multiple mentions, including Best Supporting Actor for Aaron Taylor-Johnson. After his shocking Golden Globes win, Taylor-Johnson is now officially in the Oscars conversation.


Emily Blunt pulled off her second major Actress mention of the season, after earning a Screen Actors Guild nomination, for her work in The Girl on the Train. While she's still not a lock for an Oscar nomination (Isabelle Huppert wasn't eligible for the BAFTAs and is expected to earn an Academy Award mention), it wouldn't be surprising to see her make the cut.


The biggest snub, despite getting a Best Film nomination, is Moonlight, which missed out on a Director nod for Barry Jenkins. And, Denzel Washington, who's never been nominated by BAFTA, and Fences were basically completely shut out, minus Viola Davis's nomination in Supporting Actress.


Also expected to well at the BAFTAs was Andrea Arnold's American Honey, a soaring road trip movie featuring a breakout performance by Sasha Lane. The film did pick up a mention in the Best British Film category, but that's it.


The 70th British Academy Film Awards take place February 14, 2017 at the Royal Opera House.
